In 1957, Ed Brown was living the cowboy life with Dub Blanton as his mentor, herding cattle from pasture to pasture on horseback. During slack time they would gather up the calves and ride them. Carolina Rodeo Co. was born in the early 60’s and Ed’s professional rodeo career began in Blacksburg SC, his home town. Ed went on to become a champion bull rider.
Ed’s dream of owning his own rodeo came true in 1968. The Ed Brown Rodeo became a reality. The Ed Brown Rodeo has since produced the best family friendly rodeo on the East coast for 44 years.
