Josh Frost and the Linderman Award

Josh Frost is a two-time Linderman Award winner and if you ask him, it is one of the most prestigious awards you can win in professional rodeo.

To claim the Linderman Award, you must compete in three events and you have to compete on both ends of the arena while earning at least $1,000 in all three events. It is up to the cowboy whether they pick two roughstock and one timed event or two timed events and one roughtstock. For Frost, he chalks up his three as bull riding, tie-down roping and steer wrestling.

“It brings me a lot of pride, it’s the most cowboy award in our sport,” Frost said.

It takes a village to get this done and Frost has help from his wife, family and friends and he keeps going after the Linderman strictly because of his love for the sport of rodeo as a whole.

“My biggest goal and one of my biggest dreams is to make the NFR in the bull riding and calf roping,” he said.

Growing up living the cowboy way and knowing of the great like Phil Lyne, Ty Murray and Joe Beaver, Frost chases the Linderman Award for more than just it’s title. He says it’s being a good person, never giving up and he keeps that philosophy when he is on the road.

This year, the goal is a Gold Buckle but Frost doesn’t plan on stopping there.
