All Around Performance Horse
Thursday (April 6) at 10:00 PM ET
“All-Around Performance Horse,” produced by Scotty Cobb and John Klam, heads to Fort Worth, Texas and the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards for The American Semi-Finals. Go behind-the-scenes with Ronnie Ray, a rodeo flagman and timed-event judge for the calf roping and barrel racing for The American. Find out what it’s like to judge events when $1 million is on the line and tenths of a second matter. They also speak with Wayne Needham, the owner of Ultimate Calf Roping. Wayne is a stock contractor responsible for selecting the nation’s best calves to compete at The American. He’ll discuss what he looks for in a calf before it runs on the dirt at AT&T Stadium.
“Recently, this has been the most requested show from RFD-TV viewers who love the format and have wanted the program back,” stated Patrick Gottsch, founder and president of Rural Media Group, Inc. “We are committed to expanding and improving our efforts to cover and feature more horsemanship, rodeo, and all western sports going forward, and this venture with AAPH is just the beginning.”
“After a two-year break, we are excited to bring “All-Around Performance Horse” back to RFD-TV,” offered John Klam in a joint statement with Scotty Cobb. “We look forward to bringing viewers more of the western way of life, AAPH style. So, come ride with us.”
“RFD-TV’s advertisers and sponsors are looking for more opportunities in western sports programming,” added Billy Frey, CMO at RFD-TV Events. “The American is already sold out for 2017 with every sponsor renewing from 2016, and Western Sports Wednesdays is gaining real momentum with our Nielsen-rated audience, especially with all the new homes that RFD-TV is gaining through Charter and DIRECTV NOW.”
