2021 Saddle Bronc Riding Resistol Rookie of the Year K’s Thomson Out Eight Months


Saddle bronc rider K’s Thomson will miss significant time because of hip surgery.

The 2021 Resistol Rookie of the Year last rode in Clovis and had made $6,239 in 2022 before he was shut down with the injury. The previous year, he finished No. 16 and made nearly $74,000.

“Excited to be on the mend! Doctor found it was a bit worse than we hoped for once he got in there. He had to do a bit of extra work to fix it, but he was pleased with how the operation went,” he wrote on Instagram Tuesday night. “It’ll be a bit of a longer recovery than I was hoping for, but we’re expecting to be back rodeoing in about 8 months!”
