The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame recently announced their 2020 Hall of Fame inductees, including Lari Dee Guy, eight-time Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) World Champion, spending three decades winning every title in the all-girl roping industry, with more than $1.5 million in career earnings.
Guy has been a leading force in the sport of breakaway roping, paving the way for competing cowgirls to have more opportunities in rodeo than ever before. She strives to improve breakaway roping, team roping, and tie-down calf roping for the cowgirls of the present and the future.
Induction into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame is the highest honor bestowed on individuals who have shown excellence in competition, business and support of rodeo and the western lifestyle in Texas.
Well deserved, not only is Guy an elite athlete, but she’s also an expert horse trainer and renowned clinician. She trains for the best of the best, including fellow Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame honoree, Trevor Brazile; and has put on roping clinics from Decatur, Texas to Brisbane, Australia and everywhere in between. In 2013, Guy launched the “Rope Like A Girl” campaign to help motivate young girls and women in the roping world.
One of the premier events prior to the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, the induction ceremony will be held at Billy Bob’s Texas on Thursday, January 16, 2020. Proceeds benefit the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame & Museum and its ongoing education programs and Western lifestyle preservation efforts.
