Kyzer Stoddard has horse riding in his genes. The youngest child in the famous Stoddard rodeo family he was
practically born with a saddle attached. As a youngster Kyzer rode whatever animal he could, even the family
dog, and taught many of the animals on the family farm to do tricks. When he was given his first pony he showed
a lot of people what was to come later as he trained his pet to sit, lay down and bow just like a dog trainer
would do with his canines.
To say he was fanatical about his pets and teaching them tricks would be an understatement. Kyzer spent every
waking moment that he could with them and, by the time he was 10, he was so good at it that he was picked to
star in a Chevrolet Truck commercial that was aired nationwide, a huge honor for such a young rider.
Since the time Kyzer started trick riding, he has been steadily perfecting his craft and today is one of the
sport's most amazing young talents. What's even more fantastic is that hetaught himself how to trick ride and
many of the horses that star in his show were once called 'untrainable'. The fact is,Kyzer relishes meeting and
exceeding challenges. Those closest to him have come to realize that it's not a good idea to say that something
is 'impossible' because, with his amazing talents, Kyzer most often proves them wrong.
