John Harrison Specialty Acts
John Harrison of Soper, Oklahoma is the son of Wiley and Donna Harrison and the grandson of the late World Champion Bull Rider, Freckles Brown. He has an associate's degree in Ag-Business and is a certified Equine Massage Therapist. At the age of six, John received his first trick riding lesson after watching a famous trick rider perform at a nearby rodeo. She inspired John and since then he has trained and performed with many of the best trick riders in the world.
John is a contract act specialist who entertains audiences with fast, colorful roman riding, trick roping and trick riding. Entertaining audiences with fast-paced roman riding is John's delight as he stands atop two individual horses that work as a team. The horses run freely through a series of figure eights, reverses, split flaming fire stakes and for the grandeur he jumps the horses through a flaming horseshoe of fire.
His trick riding is a crowd favorite where he does numerous vaults and athletic maneuvers, including the difficult shoulder stand while riding a runaway horse around the arena. John's trick roping is a fast-paced act that can be done in any lighting situation and is usually followed by a couple of runs of trick riding.
Adding to his repertoire of acts John has created a comedy act to include his performances. In 2003 Miss Rodeo Universe was crowned and she has been traveling the rodeo circuit ever since displaying her grace and style to audiences all across the nation. She has all of the attributes a great queen needs: poise, articulate expression, a flashy fashion sense, but can she ride?
As a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association since 1999, John was selected to perform at the prestigious 2001 Wrangler Nationals Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada and again in 2002.
With the combination of talent, speed, and class, it is a guarantee that John will surely entertain any rodeo crowd.
