Best rodeo memory: Last year in Big Piney we were up right after a good team that was a 6.6. I wanted to win so we went at the steer I spun him and my heeler just inhaled the steer and we were 5.7.

Timed-event competitors: Tell us about your horse: I have a bay named Clyde. He's about 16 and he's the best horse I've ever ridden. Just don't get your rope under his tail because if you do… I don't care if you ride horses pro, you're gonna hit the ground.
