15 Questions with Rodeo Wrecks:
Question 1: Love your whole idea of Rodeo Wrecks. But how did you come up with the idea of Rodeo Wrecks?
Rodeo Wrecks: I’m actually a rodeo photographer. I had so many pictures of wrecks and no one bought them! I decided to make an instagram for bull riding wrecks, then people started tagging me in their pictures. So I started posting theirs and mine and then opened it up to all of rodeo. 1.5 years later and I have 17k Instagram followers.
Question 2: By the way, I love the logo! When and how did you come up with a logo that’s so unique for Rodeo Wrecks?
Rodeo Wrecks: I actually drew it up myself! Got someone to graphic design it into a computer file. I knew i wanted it to look SUPER gnarly, so I started thinking of famous bulls with rank horns. Little Yellow Jacket and a few others came to mind. It’s a combo of some of my favorite bulls. Plus the ring. Gotta do something to stand out!
Question 3: Female, and the founder of rodeo wrecks.. Is it tough being in an industry full of guys when your trying to shine bright?
Rodeo Wrecks: Yes and no. Yes, cuz a lot of guys don’t take you seriously. They don’t think I know rodeo, what I’m talking about. No, because I know my market, social media and what people like. Being a woman has never held me back. Us women are talking over rodeo!
Question 4: What rodeo/bull riding did Rodeo Wrecks break out at? Did people know about your rodeo wrecks when you attended the event?
Rodeo Wrecks: Haven’t really had a breakout rodeo. I went to the Flagstaff Pro Rodeo with Logan Blasdell couple weeks ago. I have been recognized at a couple rodeos, though, with my hat! Can’t wait for the NFR! Definitely gotta set something up!
Question 5: In your bio on your Facebook fan page. You mentioned that you have a new clothing line out. Tell us about that, and is there any sales going on right now?

Question 6: You mentioned earlier that you went to Flagstaff, AZ Pro Rodeo with Logan Blasdell. Did you get any ideas on how to market Rodeo Wrecks at rodeos/bull ridings?

Question 7: You have quite an amazing team! Care to tell a little bit about the people on your Rodeo Wrecks team?

Logan Blasdell is seriously one of the most talented bull fighters I’ve ever seen. Can’t wait to see where he goes. Kaley Mae Hook is a woman stock contractor taking the PBR by storm!
