Rebecca Frazier was born October 12, 1950 in Dallas, to Vivian and Everett Hail. She grew up in Mesquite and began riding at eleven, competing in barrels and going to playdays. After becoming a wife and mother, she put her passion on hold. However, in 1984, she would settle in Wills Point, where Beckie’s love for horses rekindled in a heaven-sent, bay horse named Poco. She hit the show ring, riding English and Western Pleasure.
Beckie managed to pass on her love for horses to her 3 children Brian Morris, Amber Morris, and Kim Welch, but it wasn’t until her youngest became involved in rodeo that her true work for the sport began. In 1990, Beckie helped her friend, Jerry Hill, with the local high school rodeo team. She worked as a secretary, a timer, and served on the Board of Directors for the Lone Star High School Rodeo Association for 5 years and the Texas High School Rodeo Association, Region 4 for 3 years. From 1992-95, she was also a board member for the Texas Professional Rodeo Association. In 1996, after consulting with board members of the Central Rodeo Association, the two associations joined forces to form the United Professional Rodeo Professional Association, which still runs strong today.
Beckie continues working with the UPRA and has been blessed to work with many great contractors such as Stace Smith Pro Rodeos, Lancaster and Jones Pro Rodeo, United Pro Rodeo, Flying C Rodeo Company, Champion Rodeo Company, Gene Smith Rodeo Company, and Hat Brand Rodeo Company.
She cherishes the friendships she has made along the way and will continue to work in the rodeo industry as long as the Lord allows. Beckie still lives in Wills Point with her husband, Bill, and continues spending most of her time typing day sheets!
