Donning hats and riding on saddles, the team performed as the special act at the Hamel Rodeo Thursday night.

Lepard and his team have been traveling around the country for decades.

What started as a small event to put Hamel on the map and raise a little money for charity has grown into the largest professional rodeo in the state.
