No matter how many times I’ve experienced it, I’m still awestruck world champions’ demeanor.
Take five-time winner Lewis Feild. It’s been more than 20 years since the Utah cowboy has won gold, but he still carries a quiet confidence that is befitting a rodeo cowboy. Now known more as the father of one of ProRodeo’s elite bareback riders, Lewis Feild is quite proud of the accomplishments of his youngest child, Kaycee.
But Lewis is no more proud of Kaycee than he is Shad or Maclee, the older children he shares with his loving wife, Veronica.
After half an hour of visiting today, I was most impressed with Mr. Feild’s giving personality. There is confidence without the ego, something you find more often in rodeo than other professional sports. He offered insights as well as storylines during our conversation, and I appreciate that more than most.
