The Smiths – mom Tracy, dad Buddy and daughter Erin – have been involved in S.C. rodeos for several years, though they’ve always had to travel several hours to competitions. This year, the Smiths decided to bring the rodeo to them. “It’s been tough, but it’s worth it,” Tracy Smith said. “I’m hoping it’ll raise some more interest in rodeos around here.”
