Longhorn World Championship Rodeo

By

Longhorn World Championship Rodeo recently stopped in Huntsville. O. V. "Mooney" and Loretta Lynn founded the company that eventually became today's Longhorn World Championship Rodeo. In fact, Lynn performed at every performance of what was then known as Loretta Lynn's Longhorn Rodeo. The Lynns sold the company to Bruce Lehrke in the 1970s. Under Lehrke's direction, the rodeos moved to indoor facilities with seasoned personnel handling all aspects of the business. In March 2007, upon his death, Bruce's daughter Heather Lehrke took over the rodeo. Today, this pro rodeo features six of its most popular contests plus a variety of entertainment. Here's a look at some hightlights in Huntsville.
