SD Teen With Heart Defect Able To Meet Rodeo Idols

February 8, 2014, 12:55 PM


A South Dakota teen born with a congenital heart defect was able to rub elbows with his idols at the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo.

Fifteen-year-old Tucker Varns, of Spearfish, has always wanted to be a cowboy. He loves horses and rodeo, especially bull riding and bucking bronc events.

His dream of meeting the best rodeo riders in the country came true earlier this week. He was able to go behind the scenes to talk with the pros and have them autograph a special cowboy hat.

Tucker has been riding specially-trained horses for five years. His heart condition makes it too risky for him to ride a rodeo horse.

His mother, Dixie Varns, says being around horses and rodeo is Tucker's "comfort zone."
