The Wild Child is Coming To Stonyford

wild child 2006 cropTroy Lerwill, aka “The Wild Child,” is bringing his amazing motorcycle act to the Stonyford Rodeo on May 3 and 4, 2014. While his act thrills the crowd when he jumps his long, long motor home, his wisecracking with Don Jesser, the announcer, keeps the fans laughing throughout the entire three-plus hours. This will be Troy’s third time to appear in the Stonyford Arena. He brought his act to Stonyford in 2006 and again in 2009. The crowd loved him on both occasions.

Troy comes from a rodeo family, in Payson, Utah, where he still lives. He rode his first horse at age 4 and motorcycle at age 10. He is an accomplished performer who has been voted six times PRCA Comedy Act of the Year, three times NFR Barrelman, and two times Coors Man in the Can. At times, his life in the Coors can gets hazardous. At least twice the bulls took aim at him at our 2009 rodeo and sent his can spinning. The crowd enjoys seeing the bull attack the can, but it can’t be too pleasant for Troy. However, he always emerges from the can with a smile on his face and a wisecrack on his lips. Troy is also great with kids. He works closely with our local folks to help our kids enjoy the “Best-Dressed” and “Mutton Bustin’” competitions; and our kids love him for it.

The Stonyford Rodeo is a two-day event. The first day will be on Saturday, May 3, 2014, at 1 p.m. Sunday’s rodeo starts at noon. Tickets are available on-line at www.stonycreekhorsemen.org, at selected retailers around the area, and at the gate. Go to the www.stonycreekhorsemen.org for more information.■
