Tomas Garcilazo - Horseman & Rope Artist

1 of 13

Tomas, a native of Mexico City, was introduced at an early age to his family heritage and tradition of "La Charreria" which is a skill performed through the generations only by the Mexican Charro. Charros take extreme pride in their highly developed horsemanship and roping abilities. Tomas, third-generation Charro, has devoted his life to sharing Mexico's National Sport La Charreria with the world.

A lifetime of preparation, performances, and competition continue to require total self-discipline, patience, and commitment by Tomas to training and mastering the artistry of La Charreria. Incorporating a display of refined horsemanship while demonstrating maguey rope artistry in his performances bring audiences to their feet applauding in appreciation of his skills. Tomas devotes countless hours to his horses who with their athletic ability and intelligence willingly execute maneuvers when asked by their friend. It is a rare and honorable experience to witness these partnership performances.

Tomas has performed throughout Europe, Canada, the U.S., and Mexico. He has appeared on Broadway in New York City and toured the U.S. with the Will Rogers Follies, an acclaimed 6 time Tony Award-winning show. He was a featured performer for two years at Disney's Wild West Show in Paris, France plus the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show touring Holland and Germany. Tomas has performed numerous times for Mexico's Presidents along with guest performances at the U.S. White House and Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Tomas resides in southern California and continues to share his legacy with audiences at rodeos, stock shows, horse shows, and equine events internationally.

His awards are many including the PRCA 2018 2013, 2012, and 2007 Specialty Act of the Year award at the Las Vegas National Finals Rodeo and most recently TV talent show winner of the ‘Go Big Show’ season 1 featured on TBS channel.

Rodeo Announcer Steve Goedert

Steve Goedert returns to the Black Hills Roundup in 2022. “I can’t tell you what an absolute honor it is to be a part of this rodeo. If you announce rodeo and you think of the 4th of July, there are few places you’d rather be than Belle Fourche," says Goedert.

The BHR crow’s nest is not unfamiliar territory to Steve. He announced two events at the Roundup grounds for the Pro Roughstock Series (PRS) six years ago. During his time with the PRS he worked closely with Scott Reder, then Production Director with the PRS, who has also been a long-time member of the Roundup committee.

Steve is a former United States Marine and graduate of CSU Chico with a degree in Ag Business, Steve has always had a passion for ranching.

Steve performs multiple sales a week for Beaverhead Livestock Auction and Montana Livestock Auction Company.

Steve resides in Southwest Montana with his wife and three children.

Professional Rodeo Announcer Andy Seiler has never met a stranger. His passion and love for the sport of rodeo combined with his broadcast journalism degree make his career choice as a rodeo announcer a winning combination. Seiler has announced all over the country in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and has been called “an up-and-coming voice for professional rodeo,” by Boyd Polhamus. “I have always enjoyed talking to people and discussing everything rodeo,” Andy explains. “I just never knew that the years of roping the dummy and working to be a champion translate later in life in trying to give contestants and fans alike that same winning feeling.”

Andy’s first-hand knowledge and experience will keep your crowd tuning into the action to see what exciting development will unfold next. A former National High School Finals Champion Team Roper and a three-time qualifier to the College National Finals Rodeo, Andy has been able to win at multiple levels and now enjoys describing the joy of victory and the heartbreak of defeat to rodeo spectators nationwide. “I truly enjoy being a part of an industry that embodies an American icon that is the cowboy,” Seiler says. “I grew up on a farm, loving the honesty, toughness, and the integrity that comes with the ranching and farming way of life and today’s contestants keep that tradition of yesterday alive.”

The announcer of the rodeo is essential in making sure fans are not only informed, but that they are enjoying their time spent in a family-safe environment. Seiler is a husband and a father who knows the importance of telling the tale for all ages and generations to enjoy, because a repeat customer is a winner for everyone. If you are looking to ways to make your event grow into the future, make sure you have a commentator who knows what the future of your event can be. Former NIRA Commissioner John Smith said, “I honestly believe Andy will be one of the best recognized announcers in the sport of rodeo.” Andy Seiler is willing and able to make sure that his talents and resume match up to the needs of your next event.
