The Legend of the Lone Roo, Pt. 2 - the story of Dave Appleton

Last week on ProRodeo Tonight, we introduced you do Dave Appleton, a rodeo cowboy who came from Australia not knowing anybody in the U.S. in 1980.

When Appleton, known as the Lone Roo, arrived, he started making moves that would make him an all-around World Champion by 1988.

Not only did Appleton go on a Gold Buckle run, but he also made a run up the business latter, doing things rodeo cowboys have never done before.

Appleton rode bareback and saddle bronc horses more than 15 years, ending up in the ProRodeo Hall of Fame.
