Barrelman JJ Harrison
The Clovis Rodeo is thrilled to have barrelman and rodeo clown JJ Harrison return to entertain fans. Clowning is a career Harrison enjoys and it shows in his routine. This star has become one of the most sought-after rodeo clowns. JJ’s quick wit, hilarious routines and walk and talk antics have proven to be a treat for rodeo fans. His high-energy show entertains with plenty of family fun for kids of all ages. “It’s not an act … I really am this goofy!’ said Harrison.

Sing It Proud
Rodeo is a true sport born in the American West. Highlighting the daily tasks of the working cowboy, it salutes our western heritage and all things American. We take pride in our country and open every performance with the National Anthem. The Clovis Rodeo extends its appreciation to the very talented performers who sing the National Anthem at the opening of each rodeo performance.

The Visalia Rockettes Junior Precision Drill Team are a group of indomitable young girls who ride horses at an incredible speed doing precision drills in an arena. In one of their most breath-taking drills, they race full speed at each other from all four corners – four horses, noses to tails, forming a box in the center of the arena for a fraction of a second – then continue on. These 12 young ladies from all around the Visalia area range in age from 9 to 18 years old. They have earned All-around Champions in the Western States Drill Team Competition that encompasses teams of all ages from California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Arizona. Originally a Girl Scout troop called “Boots and Bridles;’ this group went on to form the Visalia Rockettes.
