SADDLE BRONC REPRESENTATIVE Bradley Harter There are a couple things that I love in this life, one is Saddle Bronc Riding which has formed and molded me into the person I am today. I purchased my PRCA card in 2002 which led to some of the best years of my life while qualifying for the National Finals 11 times. One thing for a contestant to be successful is their interaction with the Event Director. Your representative should be someone you can trust, while is open and willing to listen to your concerns and ideas. He should be the person who will go the extra mile to represent you. As your Event Director I will use my 18 years of rodeo experience to work with the PRCA BOD, Stock Contractors, and Rodeo Committees by representing all of you from the Permit Holder to the NFR qualifier. Unfortunately, I am unable to compete due to past injuries, therefore I can focus 100% on representing you. And now is the time I can give back to the best sport in America. I know that I can be a positive voice for each and every one of you. My mission is to help provide you with the opportunity for success in Rodeo’s Classic Event as your next Saddle Bronc Event Director. Isaac Diaz As my first term as your Saddle Bronc Riding Director is coming to a close, I want to start by saying thank you to all of you that voted for me. I am truly humbled that you all would have the faith and confidence in me to be your event representative. Starting my position as Director just a couple short weeks after the cancellation of Rodeo Houston, followed by all the other rodeo cancellations of 2020 due to Covid-19, it was an extremely challenging time to learn the ropes of being an event Director. The only reason I ran for this position was to speak on behalf of my friends and follow competitors, and I can say with full confidence that I never made a decision out of my own personal ambitions, but simply what was best for the entire body of Bronc Riders. As a new election is coming upon us in the month of March, I will be running to keep my position as the Saddle Bronc Director. There are some exciting new possibilities in the works for 2022 and I hope to continue on as your Director to see them all through. Thank you all again for having confidence in me to make your voice heard. God Bless.
