“I’ve had the opportunity to interview many of the best horsemen in the world. I’ve seen some of most outstanding horse athletes perform at their ultimate,” Wayne appreciated. With his close involvement in all aspects of the horse world, Wayne still gets his greatest personal enjoyment on horseback. “I’m far from a horse trainer, but I enjoy riding my horses on the trail and in parades,” he insisted. Admitting he doesn’t look
much like the real RoyRogers, Wayne is especially proud of his costumes and saddles. “Actually Pat looks more like Dale Evans than I do Roy Rogers. But our costumes are quite similar to those of the real stars,” he said. “I have two silver saddles made by Ted Flowers in Indiana. They are in great condition and really set off our beautiful palomino and buckskin horses. “I won’t have my horse or maybe not even mention Roy
Rogers at Equifest,” Wayne clarified. “Still, I’m very excited to be coming to Kansas and looking forward to working with all of the clinicians and entertainment.” Speaking of Horses will be cooperating with Everything Horses and Livestock and Better Horses Media to bring the Equifest of Kansas to social media, television, radio, podcasts, and more.
Many of today’s generation don’t even know who Roy Rogers and Dale Evans and their horses Trigger and But- termilk are. Still Wayne and Pat Williams enjoy portraying while honoring the famous silver screen cowboy-cowgirl singing couple on their own horses.
