Garrett Long Secures First Win of the Season at Resistol Rookie Roundup

Saddle bronc rider Garrett Long made his name known at the Cowtown Coliseum after the Nebraska native cinched the Resistol Rookie Roundup Championship Title with an 88-point ride on New Star Pro Rodeo’s South Point Buckle.

“It’s been an amazing experience, I’ve learned so much and I don’t think anybody knew who I was before I got here and maybe this is my chance,” Long said when asked about what winning the Resistol Rookie Roundup meant for his career.

Long added $2,876 to his earnings over the weekend and celebrated a milestone achievement as he goes down in history as the Saddle Bronc Champion of the second annual Resistol Rookie Roundup presented by The Cowboy Channel.
