2018 Hall of Fame Recipient - Larry Rutledge
Larry Rutledge was one of the founders of LaSH and was elected as the second Board President.
Larry Rutledge won a High Point Saddle three times and competed with LaSH for several years. Larry Rutledge believed that the goal of LaSH was to "improve horses and riders". Larry was proud to see youth riders compete in LaSH then go on to compete in High School Rodeo, AQHA shows, and NRCHA competitions.
