So you'd like to...

ramp up your HORSEPOWER with Chris LeDoux!

A guide by Austin Dalyai (Utah)

Products sampled from this guide:
Horsepower: When most of us hear that word, we think of cars, racing, tuning, Summit, Jegs, NHRA, and things along those lines. When the word is used by the select few who can call themselves Rodeo Cowboys, it means something completely different... And yet, somewhat the same. Anyone who Rodeos, or even likes rodeo, and listens to music, knows who Chris LeDoux is. Not only was he a World Champion Bareback Rider, he also started putting out Cowboy music before the guys on today's Rodeo circuits were even born. Horsepower is first, foremost, and fairly obviously, the strength, brute, and might of Rodeo's most famous animal. But it's also the feeling of pure adrenaline, much like racing down a quarter mile track at over 200 mile per hour, when you settle down in the chute, sinch down your riggin', and the gate is pulled. Yes, the feeling underneath the Cowboy once he enters the arena, wheather it's on a saddle, a bareback, or even a bull. Here is the complete musical output from Rodeo's favorite son, and Country Music's favorite Dad! Rest in peace, Chris... Good Ride Cowboy!
