Not only do rodeos abuse animals but those involved in rodeos are often involved in criminal behavior that also defies any regard for human life or the environment we all live in. SHARK exposes this thread of illegal actions by some of the biggest names in rodeo on our site CowboyCriminals.com.

With ironic timing to SHARK's massive campaign to expose abuse at the National High School Finals Rodeo, is a headline about a major rodeo player and NHSRA sponsor convicted of sexual assault--of young boys.

Update - April 2, 2013: Lancaster remains in prison. The Colorado Department of Corrections website states his estimated parole hearing is February 2014. Click here to access their website.

Update - October 13, 2009: Lancaster remains in prison. The Colorado Department of Corrections website states his estimated parole eligibility date is January 23, 2015. Click here to access their website.

Update - October 2nd, 2007: A longtime major sponsor of the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA) has been sentenced. Larry Lancaster, of Lancaster's Rock-n-Roll Rodeo Gear and Larry Lancaster's Rodeo School, was sentenced on October 2, 2007 to 10 years to life in Prison. Given the large number of charges and the seriousness of his convictions, Larry Lancaster will most likely spend the rest of his life in prison.

Update - May 26, 2007: A longtime major sponsor of the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA) has been found guilty on two counts of sexual assault on a child. Larry Lancaster, of Lancaster's Rock-n-Roll Rodeo Gear and Larry Lancaster's Rodeo School, was convicted on May 25, 2007 of six counts including sexual assault on a child, bribery of a witness or victim, unlawful sexual contact, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Lancaster's Rock-n-Roll Rodeo Gear, despite having multiple felony child abuse charges levied against Larry Lancaster, remained publicized on the National High School Rodeo Association's website for eleven months after Lancaster's arrest. Even after Mr. Lancaster's conviction, Lancaster's Rock-n-Roll Rodeo Gear website still claimed to be "a proud sponsor of the National High School Rodeo Association."

SHARK president, Steve Hindi said,

"It is appalling that there has been virtually no outcry from the rodeo world regarding a pedophile who is closely involved with the industry, especially from an organization that is dedicated to rodeo events with teens. Where is the NHSRA's show of concern for Lancaster's victims? Where are the voices of the parents of the kids involved with the NHSRA and its 'friendly sponsor'? Is the rodeo industry so desperate and unprincipled that they are willing to accept money from any source?"

It has been firmly established by psychologists and criminal profilers that adults who abuse children or have problems with violence often began by abusing animals. Not only do rodeos abuse animals but also those involved in rodeos are often found to exhibit other criminal behavior.


August 2007:

Larry Lancaster, alleged pedophile and charged with 11 felony counts, is listed as a major sponsor of the NHSFR and is touted in the rodeo's program as having a "long history" with the National High School Rodeo Association. The world of rodeo is a perfect example of abusers abusing--regardless of species.

Lancaster's Rock-n-Roll Rodeo Gear, despite having multiple felony child abuse charges levied against Larry Lancaster, has remained a "proud" major sponsor of the NHSFR according to both of their websites. Is the rodeo industry so desperate and unprincipled that they are willing to accept money from any source? Their actions say "Yes!"

A 48-year-old Arvada man was ordered to stand trial on charges of sexual assault, bribery and contributing to the delinquency of a minor after a preliminary hearing Friday in a Jefferson County Court. 

Larry Gene Lancaster, who operates a Western-wear store in Aurora, faces 11 felony charges.

According to a police affidavit, a 16-year-old boy said that he went to Lancaster's residence on a regular basis to drink alcohol and smoke marijuana. Lancaster usually gave him $20 or a $20 sack of marijuana after sex, but once gave him $50 for a sex act, the boy said. 

Two other boys, 14 and 17, said that Lancaster allowed them to drink alcohol at his residence, according to the affidavit. Lancaster remains free on $50,000 bond.
