BY BRETT NIERENGARTEN
Josh Frost, Stetson Wright and Sage Kimzey are the three most decorated bull riders in the PRCA over the last two years and they are all in the Top 4 in the PRCA Bull Riding World Standings following the conclusion of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo.
Frost has been outstanding so far in 2022 and is No. 1 in the world by almost $10,000. Even before he won the Average at the NFR, he won the Wilderness Circuit Finals in November of 2021, earning him $8,771 toward the 2022 World Standings. Frost also won the National Western and two Cinch World’s Tough Rodeos in January. He is 15-for-21 this season.
FROST’S 92 POINT RIDE TO WIN NWSS
Stetson Wright’s bronc riding has upstaged his bull riding, but the 2020 World Champion still ranks No. 3 in the world. Wright is 7-for-12 in 2022 and won the Fort Worth Xtreme Bulls with rides of 88.5 and 90 points. He also finished third in Denver.
Sage Kimzey is No. 4 after competing in just one rodeo this season. He won every Go-Round in which he completed in Fort Worth, earning a total of $29,827. He capped off his run at Dickies Arena with 91.5 points in the Finals.
The lone bull rider in the Top 4 who did not make the NFR last year is Scottie Knapp, who is second with $36,725. Knapp, who made the NFR in 2016, is 12-for-31 in 2022 and half of those qualified rides have been for 85 or more points. Knapp finished second in Fort Worth with 90 points on Rafter G’s Johnny Thunder in the Finals, that ride earned him $12,000.

The current Top 10 also includes quartet of bull riders 22 and under all looking for their first NFR berth.
Bubba Greig, 21, has won $28,489 in 2022 and is No. 5 in the world. Greig’s biggest win this season came at Bulls in the Ballpark (Texas) in November of 2021 which won him more than $10,000. Greig also won the Brawley Cattle Call Rodeo (California) and finished second at the National Western. He is 9-for-21 and averaging nearly 86 points per ride.
