RFD-TV’s THE AMERICAN, presented by Polaris RANGER® Athlete Event: Team Roping (Heeler)

Bio: Gold Buckle Champion, Rich Skelton, is nothing short of a superstar when it comes to team roping. As a Heeler, Skelton holds the record for world champion titles with eight consecutive wins. He is also a 22-time WNFR qualifier, and a one-time WNFR average champion. Furthermore, he’s qualified for the RNCFR 12 times and has been named RNCFR champion three times. He is just short of $3 million in earnings for his success. 

In May, Skelton was in a life-threatening vehicle accident in Llano, Texas—his hometown. However, Skelton was back competing in no time. Rich and his wife Rhonda have an 11-year-old daughter who is beginning to pursue rodeo sports as well.
