Saddle Up for a Good Time

Those who seek the rich legacy of barrel racing can trace its roots back to Texas. It's there that we encounter Gary Leffew, a former world champion bull rider and Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Hall of Famer. In this episode of "All Roads Lead to Texas," host Dylan Thuras journeys to Emory, Texas, to glean wisdom from the master himself in the art of barrel racing—maneuvering a horse around a pattern of barrels with speed and precision. Saddle up for a firsthand glimpse into the cowboy way of life as Dylan steps into the rodeo ring for the very first time.
