Ahead of the 61st Annual University of Nebraska Rodeo, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts took to a horse to proclaim it rodeo week.
Ricketts quoted Ronald Reagan, who said: “I’ve often said there’s nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse.”
After signing the official proclamation, the Governor joined members of the UNL Rodeo team on a ride around the Governor’s residence.
