John Harrison Rodeo Clown

John Harrison is a noted rodeo clown and barrelman. He comes by his profession honestly. His late grandfather was rodeo legend, Freckles Brown. (Freckles rode the "unrideable" bull Tornado, the subject of Western Music songs, and was a World Champion Bull Rider)  John was around rodeo and rodeo people his whole life. John became a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) in 1999, as a trick and roman rider, and trick roper. He later diversified and added barrelman to his PRCA card.

John has worked rodeos from coast to coast and has made 5 appearances at the prestigious Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, NV, three times as a specialty act performer and twice as a barrelman.  2012, 2014, 2015 John picked up the coveted award of Comedy Act of the Year.  In 2014 he brought home the gold buckle that represents his achievement of Coors Man in the Can. He feels blessed to be doing what he loves and with those he loves at his side. 

John married in 2006. He and his wife Carla have had four children; daughters Addison & Billie (now an angel in heaven), Charlee, and son, Cazwell. You won't often catch John with out his family. Rodeos seem more fun with them at his side.

What will you see at the Minnesota Horse Expo PRCA Rodeo?

The seven standard competitions at a rodeo are Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Bull Riding,Tie Down Roping, Steer Wrestling, Team Roping and Barrel Racing. The first three events - Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding and Bull Riding - are considered "roughstock" events.The cowboy's score is equally dependent on not only his performance, but also the animal's performance.The other competitions are timed events, which means the cowboy (or cowgirl, for the Barrel Racing) compete against the clock, as well as each other.
