Cory Kidd V Talks Winning in Weatherford and New Perspectives

The team roper is expecting a child in December, which he found out after he decided to no longer rope full time

Cory Kidd V and his heeling partner Dustin Davis turned in a 4.4-second run to win Parker County last weekend, adding $3,230 to their season earnings.

“It’s a big advantage in Weatherford to get to go second on the steers and go later on in the rodeo, and we were the second-to-last team of the whole rodeo,” Kidd said. “It seems the steers get better at the end.”

Both cowboys are in the Top 20 in the PRCA World Standings, but Kidd is not attempting to make the National Finals this year. He partnered with Davis for that very reason, as neither cowboy had anyone to rope with when they wanted to enter here and there.

For Kidd, it ended up being the right decision because he later found out he has another child on the way.

“Normally at this time, I am stressed out trying to make sure I am ready for Reno,” Kidd said. “But today, I went to the zoo with my kid.”

With the pressure of making the finals lifted off his shoulders, Kidd finds himself falling in love with the sport all over again.

“It’s going to make me enjoy it again, and I need that,” Kidd said. “When you go for so many years and you haven’t really reached the end goal, it becomes monotonous.”
