Lefty Holman Talks Elevating His Skills and Potential Gold Buckles

Saddle bronc rider Lefty Holman has qualified for his second National Finals Rodeo however, this will be his first trip to Las Vegas as his first NFR was in 2020 when it was held in Arlington, Texas.

“It’s kind of like my first NFR again. I got to go out to Texas and Texas was super good to me and it was really fun but I’m really excited to get in the Thomas and Mack,” he said.

Holman comes from a family of NFR qualifiers and the pressure that adds is something he thrives off of. Those that push him to be better are also a huge part of his support system making it all come together.
