Top PBR cowboys will be riding in the rodeo February 23, 2013, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Perhaps the best entertainment will be capuchin monkeys riding border collies, rodeo style! See Team Ghost Riders Charger and Rock, Laramie and Ted, Mega and Dog, and Dakota and Spot. These amazing animals trained with love - and Pop Tarts - are certain to entertain the crowd while showing how closely Tim Lepard works with his dogs and monkeys.
Tim's bio includes a 3 time winner for "Comedy Act of the Year," 3 time winner of "Dress Act of the Year" and 1 time winner of "Barrel Man of the Year" plus much more in his 35 years involved in the rodeo. Tim had scheduled appearances on the Jay Leno Show and on Steve Harvey's "Big Show."
Any worries about the monkeys moving fast need only consider a monkey swinging through the trees, even as a baby clinging to its mother's back, to understand fast and fun is part of the monkey life - even in the wild.
