Specialty Act

Team Ghost Riders


Tim “Wild Thang” Lepard and The Ghost Riders travel the US entertaining crowds.  Tim started his rodeo career 35 years ago riding bulls, which evolved into bull fighting.  After several injuries due to fighting bulls, Tim began putting together the dog and monkey act.

“Just seeing the crowd smiling and hearing their laughter makes it all worthwhile.”

The Ghost Riders consists of 3 monkey and dog pairs.  In 2006 Tim preformed for the first time with 4 monkey and dog pairs during the Tough Enough to Wear Pink performance at our very own Ellensburg Rodeo.  Both Tim and The Ghost Riders were all sporting pink in support of the campaign.  Tim is excited to be coming back to Ellensburg in 2014!
