RFD-TV's THE AMERICAN, presented by Polaris RANGER® Semi-Finals Athlete Event: Tie Down Roping
Two-time WNFR qualifier and three-time RFD-TV’s The American, presented by Polaris RANGER competitor Caleb Smidt is from Belville, Texas. In Smidt’s rookie year alone, he made the most money of all the tie-down ropers and received the all-around rookie title. In 2014, however, Caleb’s leg was broken by a steer wrestling machine, resulting in two surgeries.
After his recovery, Smidt went on to place first in the world standings in 2015. The 2015 PRCA World Champion Tiedown Roper is ready to take on The American.
