OHA Keynote Speaker:

Ty Murray

Co-founder and driving force of the PBR


The keynote speaker for the OHA Summit is the renown, unprecedented Nine-time World Rodeo Champion, and ProRodeo Hall of Fame Inductee known as “The King of Cowboys”; Mr. Ty Murray. Co-founder of the Professional Bull Riders (PBR), Ty created an extraordinary powerhouse in equestrian sport and a fan base and TV audience unparalleled in the world of horses and sports. Ty’s message to The Ocala Horse Alliance Summit will be unifying for strength and growth and creating a dynamic following for horse sports. Ty will be our guest in Ocala for three days and while here, will be available for title sponsor promotional events. Ty will also tape a message for our youth about setting a goal and staying focused to achieve it… lessons from his childhood that he credits for his successful rodeo and bull riding careers. This video message will be used in our classroom programs for The Black Stallion Literacy Project. Ty will also create a video message to parents on the lessons and values kids learn from involvement with horses. We are truly excited about having Ty Murray as our keynote speaker for the launch of The Ocala Horse Alliance.
