At 53, the 2011 WPRA Rookie of the Year Lee Ann Rust and
SS Streakers R Us prove that you’re never too old to realize your dreams.
Many young girls dream of reaching the ultimate rodeo—the Wrangler National
Finals—on their favorite horse, running into Las Vegas’ Thomas & Mack Arena to

goes on and the realities of life set in, very few ever have the opportunity to
reach that pinnacle. However, Lee Ann Rust of Stephenville, Texas, has proven
that at age 53, dreams can still come true.
