Spin to Win Rodeo - - Fial Thoughts -


When did you start rop­ing?

Since 5 or 6.”

How did you get started?

My dad. We rope to­gether. He taught me from day one. Ev­ery­thing I know.”

First big win?

I was on a grey horse with my dad, about 8 years old, and I won $3,500. I was in this town when I did. Here in Wick­en­burg.”

What do you do when you’re not rop­ing?

Right now I mainly train horses and I ride out­side horses for peo­ple. I have my own stud right now and we’re try­ing to raise ba­bies out of him. But we mainly rope for a liv­ing and train horses for peo­ple.”

Any chal­lenges you’ve faced as a roper?

I cut my fin­ger off when I was 18. My mom told me I wasn’t al­lowed to rope any­more, just play with dolls. That didn’t work.”

Got a fa­vorite horse?

My fa­vorite horse is Bor­ra­cho. He’s my go to mount for both the break­away and head horse. He’s qual­i­fied me for the Amer­i­can Semi Fi­nals twice in the break­away and taken me to many pay win­dows this sum­mer. He was dang sure a di­a­mond in the rough!”

What’s your fa­vorite No­ble Out­fit­ters prod­uct?

The boots. I no­ticed that when I first put them on, they felt bro­ken in al­ready.”
