Some history of Willits, California! More to come!

 

In 1938, Lee Persico, at the age of 2 years, 2 months, and 18 days was a big hit of the Frontier Days Celebration as an up and coming champion rodeo performer and future bronc rider. Lee already had "Buck" his own personal pony well in hand.

Little lee was never at any time strapped or tied on his mount and in all his riding and in all photographs, performs with an absolutly free seat in the saddle.

According to sources, Lee was and continues to be the youngest trick rider in world history.
