When asked how Beyond Rodeo got its start, Susie Dobbs had this to say, "I believe there are a lot of rodeo fans in America that would like to know a little more about their favorite cowboys and cowgirls besides the score of their last ride. The men and women that make rodeo their job are stars in their own right. I believe that they are more than just an 8-second ride and it was high time they got to tell their own stories." Susie Dobbs grew up around rodeo, and with her father being on the Buffalo Bill Rodeo Committee in North Platte, Nebraska, she was able to get an insider's look at the sport of rodeo. "I have made a living entertaining and singing country music at many of the country's major rodeos. One thing I can say is that the folks that center their lives around that arena make you feel like you are part of their family, the rodeo family. You just can't find support and love like that anywhere else and I am proud to be a part of it."
Beyond Rodeo with Susie Dobbs and Hadley Barrett is a long awaited look into a sport that has everyone saying, "My heroes have always been cowboys."
