For four decades, Tommy Lucia has been entertaining audience around
the world. He is
recognized as both a premier entertainer and one of Americas’
leading animal handlers. He
has received many honors over the years, including “Entertainer of
the Year” at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas for three
years running---2003, 2004 and 2005.
His success is due in large part to the unique bond
that Tommy has developed with Whiplash and his other animals.
The bond has been developed over years and is based on love
and respect. The performers sense the excitement and crowd-pleasing
desire of Tommy and do their utmost to transfer this to their
efforts toward their fans. When
a new animal joins the Lucia family, Tommy becomes their mentor in
extolling to them to a desire to develop their true potential. There
is, however, no move on Tommy’s part to detour them from
developing at their own pace. But, with Tommy, each animals wants to
excel and enjoy each maneuver. It is important that each enjoy what
they do and are rewarded with love and affection. When they are not
in front of an audience, you will find Tommy, Whiplash and the
others relaxing at their ranch near Dallas/Fort Worth. There they
exercise and practice their routines to maintain readiness and
perfection for their next outing.
