Scotty Lovelace is recognized as one of the stock contractors who has a bunch of great bareback horses. Guys like Lovelace and Pete Carr have established a fantastic herd.
Lovelace, owner of Classic Pro Rodeo, told me tonight that his great horse, Big Tex, will likely move over to saddle bronc riding for the 2012 season. Big Tex was the 2010 Bareback Riding Horse of the Year.
“I want to see if he can win the halter over there, too,” Lovelace said.
