Larry Mahan-professional rodeo cowboy

Larry Mahan is an American former professional rodeo cowboy. He won six all-around world championships and two bull riding world championships in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) circuit at the National Finals Rodeo (NFR). The ProRodeo Hall of Fame inducted him in 1979 in the all-around category. It also inducted him as a Legend of ProRodeo in 2010.

On November 21, 1943, Larry Mahan was born in Salem, Oregon. When he was 14 years old, he started competing in professional rodeo. Beginning in 1963, he participated in rodeos with the Rodeo Cowboys Association (RCA). Later, in 1975, this organisation would adopt the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) moniker. Between 1966 and 1970, he won the title five times in a row, and in 1973, he did so one more. The 1974 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature was given to The Great American Cowboy for its examination of his 1973 comeback and rivalry with Phil Lyne.

Awards and Recognition

In the RCA, he competed and regularly won in saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, and bull riding; he was the first to contest three NFR events in one year. He was the high-money winner in bull riding in 1965, and in 1967 won more than $50,000, the first to achieve that level in a single season. In the 1970 season, he earned more than $280,000. He had a tough decade in the 1970s, winning an all-around title in 1973 but with injuries sidelining him some of the time. Mahan earned six all-around titles, but the last one was not consecutive.

His consecutive all-around record of five titles was not surpassed until 1979 when Tom Ferguson won his sixth consecutive title. In 1994, Ty Murray broke Mahan’s and Ferguson’s record of six titles. and tied Ferguson’s record of having won six titles consecutively. In 1998, Murray won his seventh title, surpassing both of them and holding the record for all-around titles at seven titles. That’s when they started calling Murray the “King of the Cowboys. “In 2010, Trevor Brazile won his eighth all-around title, surpassing them all. In 2018, Brazile won his 14th all-around title. Mahan was also the World Bull Riding Champion in 1965 and 1967.
