Rider grew up being a 5th generation cowboy. He was competing in youth and Little Britches rodeos as far back as anyone can remember & won his first buckle when he was just five years old. He was given a Will Rogers trick roping kit for Christmas when he was 9, Rider pushed the living room furniture back and would watch the instructional video over and over until he had mastered each trick. He started performing locally that next summer and began performing in professional rodeo by the time he was 11. Rider continues to practice the Cowboy skills of trick roping,gun spinning and whip cracking. In the early days of rodeo trick roping was held as a competition at most of the biggest rodeos in the nation. Rider competes at the nation's largest competitions for  trick roping and gun spinning and at age 24 has already won 2X World Champion All Around Western Performer, 4X World Champion Trick Roper, 2X World Champion Gun Spinner. Rider has performed in 49 States (needs to do a show in Hawaii) Canada, Mexico, Japan, China, Oman, Dubai, Lebanon, Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong, France, 4X Wrangler National Finals Rodeo specialty act, 4X Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo specialty act, St. Paul, Oregon and the show Cavalia and also has been nominated PRCA Specialty Act of the year 2x 2014-15.

What will you see at the Minnesota Horse Expo PRCA Rodeo?

The seven standard competitions at a rodeo are Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Bull Riding,Tie Down Roping, Steer Wrestling, Team Roping and Barrel Racing. The first three events - Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding and Bull Riding - are considered "roughstock" events.The cowboy's score is equally dependent on not only his performance, but also the animal's performance.The other competitions are timed events, which means the cowboy (or cowgirl, for the Barrel Racing) compete against the clock, as well as each other.
