Double-double for teenager Vezain

Already recognized as one of the top teenage stars in the PRCA, roughstock cowboy J.R. Vezain, of Cowley, WY, added to his list of credits over the Aug. 18-22 weekend with a pair of checks at both Billings, MT, and Fort Benton, MT.

Vezain, 18, won the bareback riding and bull riding at the Chouteau County Fair & Rodeo in Fort Benton, then tied for first in the bareback riding and finished second in the bull riding at the Yellowstone Stampede ProRodeo in Billings. That parlay, plus a bareback riding win in Baker, MT, and a sixth-place result in the bareback riding in Kalispell, MT, paid him $4,145 for the weekend and boosted the total money earned on his permit to $18,590.

Vezain finished third in the all-around at this year’s National High School Finals Rodeo.
