Proud Of East Texas: Broadus Gravette

All Broadus Gravette ever wanted to do as a child was rodeo, and he's been fulfilling that dream for almost half a century.  Over his 48 year career in Rodeo, Gravette has won many titles including the World Champion Calf Roping Title in 1971.

At the age of sixty-five Gravette is still rodeoing, as well as raising and training calf roping horses.  He says it takes every day for two years to train a good calf roping horse.  A good calf horse these days costs from fifteen thousand to sixty-five thousand and sometimes even more, but Gravette says the cost doesn't insure success, attitude and training are more important.
