THE AMERICAN - 2015
Taylor Price – a recent college graduate hoping to eventually work for Homeland Security – scored 89.75 points on Frontier Rodeo’s horse Show Stomper to take home the 2015 RFD-TV’s THE AMERICAN Bareback Riding Championship.
Price of Huntsville, Texas, was just 23 when he bested the world’s top-ranked athletes on March 2 to split more than $1 million. Before that day, in two years competing as a pro, he had earned just $40,000 in rodeo. Price also took home nearly $50,000 in prizes that included a new Polaris RANGER. “I’m still just blown away,” Price said. “This is the coolest rodeo I’ve ever been to! I was too broke so my parents had to pay my entry fees to the Semi-Finals.”
