Although Jere Holt has been singing and dancing for 15 years, he has found a new passion at Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede in Branson... trick riding. Holt, who was born in Nashville and raised in Hendersonville, has performed at Dollywood, Busch Gardens and on Carnival Cruise Lines - he even danced with Dolly at Dollywood's KidsFest opening.
This is Holt's third season with Dixie Stampede and he has found something he enjoys more than singing.
"The best thing I love about Dixie is the bond with animals and getting to know their personalities," said Holt. "I love taking care of them. My favorite is Peppy. He gives 100 percent and is the go-to horse for most acts in the show. He is just a good natured horse."
Holt continues to expand his repertoire and is learning to trick ride.
