I just never thought we had a chance at that. Then winning the top two spots in bareback of the finals, plus the saddle bronc of the finals was shocking. Lots of thanks to all the committees and contestants who come to our rodeos. When Neal Armstrong landed on the moon he said “ whenever man really tries hard enough he can succeed”. The whole crew at Frontier Rodeo has worked hard and the accolades don’t belong to me, but everybody involved in our company."
