A Tribute to Legendary Bucking Horse Spring Fling

Spring Fling of Big Bend Rodeo Company passed away on July 10 at age 27.

A legend of rodeo, Spring Fling was the Bareback Horse of the Year in 1997, the Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year in 1999 and 2000, and is now one of only three horses to have won both titles. Throughout her 15 year career, she made it to the NFR 14 times — 10 in the bareback and 4 in the saddle bronc.

In 2014, Spring Fling was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame.

“She just kicks real hard and jumps real high,” said co-owner Don Hutsell at the time of her induction to the ProRodeo Hall of Fame. “They (cowboys) either win the rodeo on her or get bucked off.”
