The Rhinestone Roper Show is a death-defying interactive Wild West traveling show, entertaining and thrilling audiences coast-to-coast, border-to-border for over 18 years. The show has it all – intricate trick roping, precision knife throwing and bullwhip cracking, fancy gun spinning and fast-draw shooting. Featured in the show are stunts by amazing trick horses Gypsy Rio and Jesse James. You may have seen them make the Quarter Finals on America’s Got Talent.

Champion showman Dan Min, The Rhinestone Roper – a true master in “the tools of the cowboy” – has revised the old-fashioned Wild West show, delighting and educating family audiences about a bygone era. His world-class skills, signature cowboy humor, and knowledge of old west lore are woven into a 45-minute show full of music, laughs, and audience participation. Dan, a former chief deputy prosecutor, hails from Jerome, Idaho.

Dan is pleased to introduce his wife Yvonne and daughter Emilee. Yvonne descends from the Mescaloro Apache Nation of New Mexico. She not only performs with ropes, whips and knives but also shoots aerial targets with a pistol while spinning on the “Wheel of Death.” 14 year old Emilee surprises audiences as well with her trick riping and knife throwing.

The world would not be the same if we let the magnificent tiger go extinct.

Tigers once occupied most of Asia, south into India, China Sumatra, Java and Bali. Some subspecies of tigers are completely extinct. The tigers that remain are threatened with extinction throughout their range.

Man is the reason they are endangered. Man has hunted the tiger relentlessly for his beautiful skin and in defense of his livestock. The greatest threat to tigers today is loss of habitat.

The tiger is protected as an endangered species by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), a treaty signed by the United States, Canada and over a hundred other countries.

You can help by supporting conservation organizations and spreading the word that the tiger is in trouble – and needs your help.

Ada Smieya-Blaszak and her son, Brunon Blaszak, take great pride in taking care of their magnificent royal Bengal tigers. Ada is a professional and graduated from the Polish State Circus School.

Each tiger consumes 10 pounds of raw meat daily, and once every week half a gallon of milk and three eggs.

The tigers are under a health program by the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and the supervisory by USDA and the Department of the Interior. Each animal is housed in its cage, and they travel in a well-ventilated semi-trailer, which is also well insulated, and is equipped with air/ride. On location: we connect all the cages together and in the same we create a tunnel with 70 feet of walking space and let them run free in the arena, 40 feet in diameter, daily. During wintertime, when we are home, the animals are transferred too much larger cages of about 80 square feet for each tiger.

Ada Smieya-Blaszak and Brunon Blaszak are fully devoted to preserve the magnificent tigers for the generations to come.
