Cord McCoy’s Western Days

Twisted Rodeo - Mon, 12/15/2014 - 13:31



LOCUST GROVE, Okla. – Cord McCoy has traveled around the world three times and has crisscrossed this country more times than he can count.

The Oklahoma cowboy made a name for himself as a professional rodeo cowboy. He owns qualifications to the National Finals Rodeo, the Professional Bull Riders World Finals and the International Finals Rodeo, the latter of which is where he won five IPRA world titles.

“As I’ve traveled around, from Cheyenne to Calgary, some of my favorite events seem to be festivals,” said McCoy, who, with his brother, Jet, appeared three times on the CBS-TV reality series “The Amazing Race.” “I just love the Western people, the Western events, the Western way of life.”

He has produced bull-riding events and been to countless rodeos. He knows the attraction people have with the West.

“When I saw the Sycamore Springs Ranch and looked at its 1,900-acres of an exotic ranch, I wanted to share that with the world,” he said.

That’s how he and ranch owner Jerry Rush came up with Cord McCoy’s Western Days, which will take place on the land south of Locust Grove from April 16-19, 2015.

“We will have four arenas going simultaneously,” McCoy said. “We will have every event that you can think of and maybe more.”

As with any festival, there will be a variety of events: a trade show, cowboy poets, a competition trail run, an exotic trail ride a bareback riding clinic with world champion Kelly Timberman and a Professional Roughstock Series event that serves as a qualifier to The American all kicks off opening day.

“We want to have a lot of events, because we want to appeal to just about everybody’s interests,” McCoy said. “We’d love for everybody to take in as much as they can, because they’ll get a great feel for the Western way of life. We’ll have a rodeo and a barn dance every night to close it all out.”
