Brazilians making a comeback New PRCA Rodeo Stars making a name for themselves

I'm that girl that can watch Rodeo and Bull Riding any day of the week. That's how much I love Rodeo and Bull Riding! I have been getting SO used to watching rodeo and bull riding every single day of the week thanks to these loooong rodeos in Texas and Colorado. The cool thing about these looong rodeos in Colorado and Texas is that you see SO many new faces!! I love seeing new faces in the rodeo and bull riding industry. It's just so exciting learning about new rodeo cowboys and cowgirls. Shall I introduce you to some of these new riders, and how their doing at some of the big rodeos in Texas? Read on, to find out more info about the Rodeo Cowboys and Cowgirls to watch for in 2015.

Since the PRCA just ended there run in Bay City, TX let's talk about some of the Cowboy's that were shining bright! 

Kash Wilson, picked up the win in bareback riding with an amazing ride on a horse named "Powerade" owned by Pete Carr Pro Rodeo. Kash Wilson is a bareback rider from Gooding, Idaho and he is one you want to keep your eye's on this year down the Pro Rodeo Trail.

Wyatt Smith, had the win in steer wrestling with a time of 3.5 seconds! Wyatt, is the brother to steer wrestler and bull rider Garett Smith! Wyatt, is also apart of the Idaho Project Filter! You can learn more about the Idaho Project Filter by clicking the link below:

In the Team Roping Tyler Wade and Kenny Harrell wowed the crowd with a time of 5.1 Seconds and that was fast enough to take the WIN!! 

James Greeson, took the WIN in saddle bronc riding with a wicked ride on a saddle bronc named "Sweet Emotion" out of Pete Carr Pro Rodeo Co. I haven't heard a lot about James this year down the rodeo trail, but now that he has a BIG win under his belt I'm sure that the winnings will just keep on getting better.

Jayce Johnson, stole the show with a fast time in the Tie-Down Roping with a time of 8.9 seconds. Jayce, is a rodeo cowboy out of Nebraska and he's looking to make it the NFR this year in 2015.

Jymmy Kay Cox, made an amazing comeback to the barrel racing world as she recovered from some broken ribs! Jymmy, picked up the win in barrel tonight with an amazing run in just 14.67 seconds!

Tate Stratton, only rode at one rodeo this past weekend and it treated him very well! Tate, was up against a bull named "Junior Bonner" owned by Pete Carr Pro Rodeo's Co. Tate rode Junior Bonner for 85 points and wowed the crowd with an amazing win!

Congratulations to ALL of the Cowboy's and Cowgirl's that picked up gold buckles in Bay City, TX this past weekend! 

I think it's time to talk some Bull Riding.. This past weekend the PBR BFTS stopped in Fresno, Calif. The action started on Saturday night with a SWEET 86.5 ride by Claudio Crisostomo on a bull named "El Capitan" . This was Claudio's first PBR BFTS event in 2015 since he was also recovering from an injury. I have faith that Claudio will wow the crowd on the PBR BFTS tour in 2015 and he is one you will definitely want to keep your eyes on in 2015 down the bull riding trail! Psstt; Claudio is another new bull rider from Brazil :)

Here is a video of Claudio's 86.5 point ride on "El Capitan". Video Credit: PBR

There was also another PBR sanctioned event this past weekend in Lethbridge, Alberta! Dakota Louis walked away with the WIN with 173 points on two bulls! Dakota Louis is an Indian Rodeo Cowboy who has competed at the RFD-TV The American Recently! Here is a video of Dakota's winning ride and the video credit goes to everything cowboy!

That's a recap of some of the rodeo's and bull riding's that I was paying attention to this past weekend! Since the weather was SO nice this past weekend.. I decided to do a little photo shoot in my FAVORITE Kimes Ranch Jeans the "Jolene". 

Last but not least, Here's a little random fact for you all.. When I sit down to write my RodeoChat blogs for Kimes Ranch Jeans I always have some sort of music playing! Well, when I was scrolling through Facebook looking for results for PBR I came across a song called "Rodeo Clown" by Jackie Johnson! If you or know of someone that's a fan of Rodeo Clowns.. Then this song is for you! I have posted the link to the song on YouTube below. Happy Listening Everyone!!
