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.
