HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Deanna Rex

Deanna was born in Tucson, Arizona in 1955. Her mother was from a ranching family in North Dakota and her father was born and raised in Tucson and was a bull rider himself. They met while attending a rodeo. Out of 5 kids, 4 of them would go on to compete in rodeos.
Deanna attended Central Arizona College on a rodeo scholarship. This is where she met Chuck Rex, her future husband. Subsequently they moved to Tucson and married, some 39 years ago today.
During Deanna’s career she has been a member of the AJRA, NIRA, LERA, WPRCA and the NSPRA associations.
One thing Deanna’s mother could never understand was her longing to turn 40. This is when Deanna knew she could finally join the Senior Pro tours. Unfortunately she only rode one Senior rodeo before suffering a broken leg at the following one. This did allow her to recoup along with Chuck and then accompany him during his comeback in 1996. When Deanna returned she won three significant titles and her special grey mare won Horse of the Year.
Deanna really cherishes all the wonderful relationships they made and places she visited on the Senior Pro Tour.
Deanna has once again started training on a new horse and hopes to be back again very soon.
