Riata Ranch Cowboy Girls

Since the performance team's founding in 1976, the Riata Ranch Cowboy Girls have performed in 19 countries, on 5 different continents, building their reputation as world class performers.

Over the years, their unique brand of entertainment has taken them from the rodeo arena dirt to professional sporting arena turf. From Windsor Castle in England where they performed for Queen Elizabeth for her Diamond Jubilee Pageant celebrating her 60 years of service to Montevideo, Uruguay where the Riata Team appeared on behalf of our US Embassy to promote professional rodeo and ranching lifestyles.

We are proud and happy to be coming to the Omak Stampede to share our form of Western Entertainment.

JJ Harrrison

Rodeo Clown

John Payne JJ Grew up in the small town of Okanogan, Washington near the Canadian Border. He found an interest in rodeo in high school, which led to his being on the Washington State University Rodeo team. "Go Cougs".............

I tried all events but Bull riding was what I really loved... but due to the fact I'm a big sissy... I stuck with Roping" He found success roping but laughs off his career to a really fun road trip.

JJ has taught middle school for 8 years and enjoys every second he spends with kids. "I never want to grow up and the best way to do that is hang with kids." JJ has been to over 120 rodeos performances in only 3 years time.

He has become one of the most sought after rodeo clowns in the Northwest and shows no signs of stopping. If you want high energy and constant entertainment in your arena...this is the guy. "I always worry that people will someday realize...it's not an act....it's just who I am...."

Rowdy Barry


Rowdy Barry Rowdy Barry loves his jobs. All of them.

Rowdy Barry is one of the most well recognized bullfighters in professional rodeo. He's been selected to keep bull riders safe at the most prestigious rodeos in the United States and Canada. He's also a well-respected cowboy artist, a family man and the owner of Wild R Ranch.

"I tried riding bulls for a while, really tried a lot more than I actually rode. I started fighting bulls in the practice pens and one thing led to another and it evolved into a great career." That career has lasted for 20 years, and isn't over yet. Barry has been a consistent fixture at some of the best rodeos in the country. He appears annually at well known rodeos like the Reno Rodeo in Reno, Nevada, the El Paso Rodeo in Texas, the Sisters Rodeo in Oregon, and the Horse Heaven Round Up in his hometown of Kennewick, Washington.

"We are athletes," Barry says of the rodeo profession he has loved since 1986. "I enjoy what I do and I do it with a smile. I hope that's contagious. I do what I do because I love it, and I've always taken loving what I do to heart and have tried to live my life that way."

He lives with his wife Laura Lee who works as Lady Wrangler and two children, daughter Clay Noel and son Miles Rowdy in Kennewick, Washington. You can learn more about Rowdy Barry by logging on to his website, www.rowdybarry.com.
