Episode two of our three-part series on the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is live and we’re taking a deep dive into the rodeo this week! You can check out the start of the series by heading over to the Black Barrel website.
First, you’ll hear from the Managing Director of Sports and Events Presentations, Catherine Schultz. Her title quite simply means she runs the rodeo. We talked about some of the unique features of Rodeo Houston; the realities of life as a rodeo athlete; and some of her favorite memories of the event.
And then stick around for a fun interview with five-time world champion steer wrestler, and past Rodeo Houston champion, Luke Branquinho. We hit a ton of topics including, the importance of keeping the cowboy lifestyle alive; the unique partnership between a steer wrestler and his horse; and some of the strangest things that have happened to him in a competition, as well as much more.
These interviews were taped in NRG Stadium, so you might hear a little sound check background noise from time to time. And, in Luke’s interview, he refers to the venue of his first experience at Rodeo Houston in 2000. A reminder, he’s talking about the Astrodome, not NRG Stadium.
