John Harrison is a noted rodeo clown and barrelman. He comes by his profession honestly. His late grandfather was rodeo legend, Freckles Brown. (Freckles rode the "unrideable" bull Tornado, the subject of Western Music songs, and was a World Champion Bull Rider) John was around rodeo and rodeo people his whole life.

John became a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) in 1999, as a trick and roman rider, and trick roper. He later diversified and added barrelman to his PRCA card.

John has worked rodeos from coast to coast and has made 5 appearances at the prestigious Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, NV, three times as a specialty act performer and twice as a barrelman. In 2012, 2014, 2015 John picked up the coveted award of Comedy Act of the Year. In 2014 he brought home the gold buckle that represents his achievement of Coors Man in the Can.

He feels blessed to be doing what he loves and with those he loves at his side. John married in 2006. He and his wife Carla have had four children; daughters Addison & Billie (now an angel in heaven), Charlee, and son, Cazwell. You won't often catch John without his family. Rodeos seem more fun with them at his side.

Lindy Nealy began trick riding at age 10 at rodeos across the country. She is known for her action packed tricks and bridle less stunts.

In 2014 she was named the Contract Act Showcase Champion for her Roman riding, where you will see fire, jumps, and fast-paced manuvers. Lindy and her horses have performed at Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede and provided stunt work in the 2013 released movie Cowgirls & Angels 2: Dakota’s Summer.

Whether it be Roman riding or Trick riding you can guarantee her performance will be fast and full of class!
