Tommie performing at his "Night of Amazing Horses" in Brooksville

After returning from a Tour that brought Tommie to Atlantic City, NJ for a PRCA Rodeo; a 2 day show at the University of Arkasas; 3 day show in Madison, Wisconsin at the Alliant Energy Center for the Midwest Horse Fair, and a one night show in Del Mar, California for the "Night of the Horse" show, Tommie performed in his own back yard with his horses and long-time friends and incredible performers, Matt McLaughlin with his Andalusian Stallions and Caroline Williams with her liberty horses. Tommie performed his 6 acts which included his horses Pokerjoe, Joker, Ace, Blade, Ceaser and Spartacus along with his dogs, Maverick and Cutaway. Matt McLaughlin wowed the crowd with his 3 stellar dressage, garrocha and cowboy dressage acts. Caroline featured her 2 black and white horses along with her mini for a circus liberty act, while I performed with Tommie with the chariots. It was a heck of a show. This is our first time at the Hernando County Fairgrounds and we were blown away by the support of the community. It was a full house with many of them waiting after to meet Tommie. We are planning to do another show in the fall, so keep checking our mainsite or sign up for our mailing list.
Tommie shows why he is the best of the best when it comes to Roman Riding. His speed and agility is second to none and his horses are an incredible looking pair.
Tommie opens the show with a hello and a greeting from atop his movie horse and mustang, Blade. It is quite the accomplishment for a horse to be in 5 movies and TV shows in the past 3 years.
Thanks to Steve Priest for the amazing photos.

Atlantic City NJ PRCA Rodeo

The first PRCA rodeo to hit the BoardWalk in Atlantic City! Barnes Rodeo pulled out all the stops and got the best of the best for this event with legendary NFR and Rodeo announcer Bob Tallman and some of the best stock in the business. Tommie performed with his 4 horses at each show. His new act, "the Cowboy", is a huge hit and features Blade and Tommie's Heelers, Maverick and Cutaway. Here is a shot of Tommie right before the first performance. Ride Fast... Take Chances! karen
