Crawley Continues His Roll, Rookie Wins Bulls At Redding

Rodeo fans packed it in to watch the Redding Pro Rodeo in Redding, California, last week. The mid-May rodeo handed out nearly $170,000 to PRCA contestants, including saddle bronc rider Jacobs Crawley, who has been the only name we've seen in the No. 1 spot in the standings for months. 

Crawley picked up a $4,484 check to put his season total at $95,708.71.

A name on the leaderboard last weekend that we're not as used to seeing was bull rider Braden Richardson. The PRCA reported that Richardson competed on his permit for several years and struggled to get ahead, but since buying his full card late last season, things have been looking up. 

“This is the biggest win of my career, and it feels good to win that much money,” Richardson told prorodeo.com. “My plan is to win rookie of the year and make the NFR. When I was on my permit I struggled a lot, and it is a lot cooler now because I’m actually starting to make a little bit of money.”

Richardson's $4,935 check has moved him into the No. 29 spot in the PRCA world standings and No. 3 in the rookie standings with a total of $22,733.65.

Congratulations to all of the Redding Pro Rodeo champions:
