All-Around Rodeo Champion Returns to Competition

By Janis Blackwell

With new mounts under her, Lisa Jo Mann Cooper Seed is returning to arena competition after a 35 year absence.

Seed is known for being an all-around champion of the American Junior Rodeo Association and the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association in her youth. Her pathway in life led her to lay down her ropes and competition years ago, but now she feels ready to pick them up again.

Growing up around Hobbs, N.M., Seed was entering junior rodeos from the time she was just a little girl.

When asked, Seed named some of the things she had won. She said she had won the 12 and under, 13-15, and 16-19 all around titles in the AJRA almost every year she competed.
