Spectators glimpse only mere seconds of the wild and thrilling saga of cowboy versus beast. This dance of dazzling, rough, and often scary entertainment occurs in a flash of pure adrenaline and is over in a brief eight seconds…or sooner. As everyone waits for the results wondering just who won, cowboy or beast, the stock contractors already know–the audience won.
Announcer – Scott Allen
Scott has been the voice of the Eagle Rodeo since its start in 2001. His grit and dedication were instilled in his youth while working alongside his father in the automobile business. Scott's knowledge of the sport and his professionalism are what sets him apart in his field. His many accomplishments include being a 20-time Northwest Pro Rodeo Association Announcer of the Year.
Announcer – Kade Rogge
We are excited to add the voice of Kade Rogge to our rodeo this year. Kade's years of success as a competitive roper laid the groundwork for his love and knowledge of the production side of rodeo. His voice has been featured on the Wrangler Network, The Cowboy Channel, and Cinch TV. When Kade isn't entertaining crowds all over the country, he's with his wife Jasmyn and kids Rory and Rix on their Southern Idaho cattle ranch.
Barrelman – Matt Tarr
From a very young age, Matt knew his life would always be intertwined with rodeo. He got his start roping as a young child, and eventually fighting bulls would lead him into his true calling - a barrelman, clown and top-notch rodeo entertainer. Matt has a quick wit and a passion for making people smile. His wife Stacie and kids Bransen and Memphis support him every step of the way. His many accolades include being a seven-time top five WNFR Barrelman.
Stock Contractor – Western Rodeos
Drew Blessinger is a fifth generation Idaho rancher who strives for a high standard of animal welfare while working to preserve our western traditions. Drew works alongside his sons, Colton and Wyatt, to establish the animal's patterns and draw out their potential. He has been dedicated to providing quality rough stock for our cowboys since 2002. Western Rodeos is the only stock contractor to have had a PRCA ‘Bull of the Year’ for three consecutive years.
Youth Stock Contractor – Rodeo Fever
Kevin Hensen's dedication to youth rodeo is evident when you see him working behind the chutes with the young cowboys and cowgirls. He provides the rodeo with first-rate calves and steers for our youth events, but it's his knowledge and patience that fosters a positive and memorable experience for the kids.
Security Detail – Boise State Football
As part of our commitment to give back, we utilize members of the Boise State football team as security detail for grounds control inside the event. We have proudly sponsored and donated back to the Bronco program for over a decade.
