Dean Thompson and Keenan Hayes Split Greeley Stampede Bareback Riding Championship

Two permit holders absolutely dominated in the bareback riding at the Greeley Stampede and they walked out of the arena splitting the championship. Utah’s Dean Thompson and Colorado’s own Keenan Hayes averaged 171 points after two rounds.

Thompson went 86.5 points in the Long Round and went 84.5 in the Short Go on Beutler and Son Rodeo’s Anything Goes against some of the toughest cowboys in bareback riding.

“I knew coming into this deal that I’d be going against those guys so I just figured, I knew I had a good horse so I’d go out there and do everything I could and ride as good as I could,” Thompson said.

Hayes made an 88-point ride on Beutler and Son’s Boomerang that he had to fight for every second and every point of. He ended up second in the Short Go behind Tim O’Connell.

“[My confidence] goes right through the roof every time and the experience after every single time keeps helping me for the future and it’s just awesome,” Hayes said.

O’Connell won the Short Round while Thompson and Hayes are your 2022 Greeley Stampede Champions.
