Mark Weber, Professional Bullfighter
Mark Weber is a Professional Bullfighter from East Peoria, IL. We just finished working together to design a sponsorship packet and I’m excited because it’s going to propel him a little closer to achieving his rodeo goals. By way of introduction, in his own words, here are a few excerpts from his biography:
I became involved with rodeo at a very young age and had a goal of becoming a Professional Cowboy. As a kid growing up, I began competing in Jr. rodeos at the age of 5 and continued through the ranks of Jr. High, High School, and Collegiate levels. I attended Troy University and was part of the Rodeo Team for four years, and then served as an assistant coach for one more year.
With my college career coming to an end, I was able to continue into the professional ranks where I have been blessed with being able to pursue my dream as a professional bullfighter. I have been fighting bulls professionally for over 10 years now.
Throughout my career I have been blessed to work some of the biggest and best rodeo finals across the United States, including the International Finals Rodeo and the National High School Finals Rodeo. In early 2019, I was asked to be a member of a team of Americans to take the sport of bull riding to Saudi Arabia for the first time, as a part of the King Abdulaziz Camel Festival.
Besides my faith in God and my dedication to my family, rodeo is a huge part of my life. It has taken me all across this country and even overseas to showcase my abilities. For as long as I am able, I plan to use my God-given abilities as a bullfighter to pursue my dream.
