July 22, 2022

Come see Tomas Garcilazo on July 28th!

Tomas Garcilazo, a four-time winner of the PRCA Specialty Act Award will be appearing at the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo on July 28th.

It won’t be Garcilazo’s first appearance at CWWR as he has wowed our fans with his roping and riding skills in the past.

Garcilazo can also be found performing with his wife, Justine and their son, Louis, 7. Louis made an appearance at CWWR in the past. Louis is amazing with a rope and a horse following in his father’s footsteps. Garcilazo is considered a rope artist and prides himself on keeping the tradition alive of the Mexican charro and the American Cowboy along with preserving the heritage of the west while appearing at rodeos throughout the country. If his son is any example, Garcilazo is succeeding in keeping the heritage alive.

Raised in Mexico City, in the traditions of horsemanship and roping skills of the Mexican Charro and now as a US citizen hails from Stepensville, TX. Garcilazo has also won the $100,000 top prize on the “Go-Big Show” on TBS, has performed 20 years for the WNFR and has been a mainstay at the National Finals Rodeo.
