Pascal Isabelle and Beutler & Son Rodeo’s Hollywood Hills Lead Rodeo Austin

Pascal Isabelle matched up with Beutler & Son Rodeo’s Hollywood Hills to make an 86-point ride during the first performance on Rodeo Austin. This ride set the bar and is the score that bareback riders are chasing.

“He actually felt really good, I was kind of in my spot. I could say I’ve been waiting for that moment for a long time to kind of get everything back... So I’m pretty happy with it,” Isabelle said.

When it comes to the format in Austin where the cowboys have to advance to the Semifinals and then the Finals, Isabelle says the caliber of horses separates the men from the rest and he likes that.

There are nine performances left in Austin that Isabelle has to wait out to see if he moves on to the Semifinals.
