By now, everybody knows Kaycee Feild won $179,327 during his fantastic 10-day run at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, which culminated in his first Montana Silversmiths gold buckle.
But did you know that four-time world champion Bobby Mote won $105,673? Feild’s run is one of the most impressive things I’ve seen in bareback riding in a long time, if not ever.
But what’s impressive about Mote’s feat is that he was shut out of the money in the first four go-rounds. The Oregon cowboy then placed in the final six rounds and finished second in the average.
Of course, his 10-head total was still 27 points behind Feild’s, but at this point, who really cares?
