CLN Reviews: Rodeo Entertainer – Black Sheep Skid
Black Sheep Skid is a stunt show. It’s one man’s attempt to bring an unique brand of entertainment to parades, rodeos, county and state fairs, demolition derbies, races and monster truck rallies. Anyone fortunate enough to be in the audience or to check out the show on YouTube has seen why these performances get a lot of attention.
A skid steer is a heavy, small and rigid framed machine with lift arms. Used in some serious construction, these shows use the engine-powered machine to perform a series of fun and crazy acts that leave audiences pop eyed and gasping for breath. Audiences have marveled at this big piece of machinery performing wheelies, high flying leaps, and other thrilling and hilarious stunts. We’ve seen the show several times and still find this attraction entertaining to the young and the young at heart.
Coming out of the White Mountains of Arizona, Black Sheep Skid is the brainchild of rodeo entertainer Jake Hatch. Currently, Hatch holds the world’s record for the “longest wheelie in a skid loader” and has also taken his mighty machine onto a railway, barreling over and over on his front wheels, playing roller coaster. A lot of it has to be seen to be believed – preferably live – but you can find plenty of the rodeo entertainer in videos and photographs on Hatch’s website, YouTube, Facebook and other social media outlets.
You’re not going to find a better rodeo entertainer and you’re not going to find bigger fans than the Cowboy Lifestyle Network, Ak-Chin Indian Community and Earnhardt Auto Centers Road Team. These media teams always make room for these shows and happily highlight the rodeo entertainer wherever he chooses to show up.
Cowboy Lifestyle Network is, of course, a leading online resource and community for anything and everything rodeo. And while there may not be a bull or horse in his shows, Hatch represents the ideals of classic riding whenever he climbs into his steer skid to perform a stunt.
