Fun Facts about Lari Dee: It’s been said that winning a hometown rodeo is one of the hardest things for a rodeo contestant to do. Lari Dee didn’t get that memo. The West Texas Fair & Rodeo in her hometown of Abilene added breakaway roping to their events in 2020. She placed sixth. In 2021, she tied with Emma Charleston for the win and this year she was alone at the top of the leaderboard. She grew up on her family’s ranch and has become known as not only a great roper, but a great horsewoman. She has put on roping clinics world wide and inspires women to rope every day with her “Rope like a Girl,” campaign. Lari Dee’s older brother Tommy qualified for the WNFR in the tie-down roping. Their father was instrumental in teaching both of them to rope.
