Announcers:

Announcer Brett Wellden is a former rodeo contestant that has competed in bull riding, team roping, and bareback bronc riding. After many years of competition, he was presented with an offer to announce several rodeos. It was an offer that changed his life! Over the last two decades, he has become one of the most entertaining announcers in the rodeo and equine event industry. He has worked everything from the smallest amateur rodeo, livestock and horse shows, to large scale PBRs. He has been selected several times as a finals announcer for multiple associations and has received awards for his skill behind the mic. Brett is a former United States Marine with combat service which is reflected in his patriotic openings at events. He has also served twenty-seven plus years as a law enforcement officer in the Oklahoma City Metro area, mainly working narcotics cases. Brett lives in Guthrie, Ok with his family. He travels with his kids, who have become three of the rockin'est sound technicians in all of pro rodeo! Brett has a strong faith in GOD and a profound love of this country and the heritage of the American cowboy.
Sam Westfall is married to Anita for over 30 years with two sons, Brandon and Riley. He has worked in Social Services for 32 years. As a family they have raised and showed horses for the entire time and recently started showing AKC German Shepherd Dogs in several states. He is Past President for the Oklahoma Palomino Exhibitors Association and Past President for the Palomino Horse Breeders Amateur Association. This year due to chance they were fortunate to have two buckskins born on our property which lead them to showing with the Oklahoma Buckskin Horse Association. He has had the opportunity to announce shows for several Palomino Associations, Buckskin Associations, 4H, Paint and Pinto Associations for over 20 years.
