Fallon Taylor Q&A

Q: How did this group of founding athletes decide to put ERA together?
A: I think its been much needed for a long time, something different for rodeo and the next generation. (We felt) Now it is time to take it to the next level. It is time for the fans to get to see rodeo the way it was meant to be seen … a huge production in a place they can all get to and know that we are all going to be there that night.
Q: How did you get your start?
A: I saw rodeo on television and with the help of some rock star parents, I was given the chance to try it.
Q: What excites you most about the sport?
A: Everything! I love the crowd, using my horse to entertain, being crazy with over the top outfits everyday and trying new innovative things to get faster every day.
Q: Who was your mentor or role model at the start of your career? A: I adore Fred Whitfield, he was my hero as someone who stood out and wasn’t always readily accepted in this industry. Part of me has always been able to identify with him and I am always star struck every time I get to be in the same room. He is a legend!
