From Tarleton State University Cheerleading

Walter Kirk is the new Tarleton Texas Rider. Walker is a Junior Agribusiness Major from Sidney, Texas.

The Texan Rider is Tarleton’s current mascot that at one time rode a horse during the football games (tradition was discontinued due to the renovated stadium,) and is also recognized by his purple chaps. The Texan Rider has been the mascot of Tarleton since 1961 when the student body chose the Texans and TexAnns to represent its athletic teams.
