Talented trick horseback rider Shadow Lane Montag will amaze audiences at the Ohio State Fair with his superb riding skills and inspiring comeback story. Alongside his drill team, Montag will perform at noon in the JD Equipment Taft Coliseum on Saturday, August 3.

With a professional bull rider as a father and a rodeo manager for a mother, Montag was introduced to the world of trick riding at a young age. In March of 2012, Montag was thrown from his horse in an accident, suffering traumatic brain injuries when he landed on his head and neck. After being resuscitated twice while being life-flighted to the nearest trauma hospital, doctors said he only had a 10 percent chance of survival.

After making a full recovery, Montag has returned to trick riding. He has also used his talent to make huge contributions to charitable organizations. Two of his national tours have been dedicated to raising money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Additionally, Montag has made significant donations to Autism Speaks and recently raised more than $40,000 for Relay for Life in Belmont County.

Don't miss Montag's amazing trick riding show, today, August 3 at noon in the JD Equipment Taft Coliseum.
