After many years of amateur rodeo competition and the additional help of his cousin, Joe, Danny learned how to win.
Danny joined the SPRA in Oklahoma and enjoyed much success rodeoing with that Association. In 1991, Danny joined the National Senior Pro Rodeo Association, and for the next 12 years, rodeoed as hard as his print shop business would allow him to.
Competing in calf roping, ribbon roping and team roping, Danny won two consecutive World Champion Ribbon Roper titles – 1999 and 2000 - and numerous finals awards. He also won saddles rodeoing with the Southwestern Conversions Association.
Not only was Danny an outstanding competitor, he was always willing to give back to his sport and pitched in wherever needed.
When the Board of Directors changed the name of the Association from NOTRA to NSPRA, Danny facilitated the effort to create a new logo, donating his artist’s work for free and printing new decals at cost.
