Kelly Kenney - Rodeo Announcer

Kelly Kenney was born in 1975 and raised in a small town in southwest Missouri with hard working, loving parents and two older brothers. Kenney credits his parents for allowing his dreams of becoming a cowboy to come true. He says, “Just now I realize how many sacrifices my family made to haul me to all of those high school rodeos. (We were) Living off of very little, but I never knew it, I felt I was the richest kid in the world.”

In 2000 he became the head rodeo coaching position at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, MO. The next year Kenney was encouraged by his peers, students and family to pursue a career in the field that he had originally started years earlier, announcing rodeos. Kenney turned pro in 2001, resigned from the college in good standing, hung up his officiating uniforms and has never looked back.

Now Kenney announces PRCA Rodeos full time working approximately 30-40 events each year, traveling from Georgia to California and Texas to Montana. Last year he announced three Wisconsin rodeos, Spooner, Madison and Merrill. Despite his busy schedule all around the United States, last year, for example Kenney was able to fit in a fishing vacation in May and a hunting trip in November.

With a cow/calf operation at home, Kenney’s life remains full of responsibilities. Kenney says, “Now when rodeo season slows down in the fall, I get a chance to go hunting, pick with the band and auctioneer some sales. Most importantly, I get to truly enjoy my family.”
 




 

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.
