The saddle bronc riders of the PRCA have a lead foot down as every rodeo brings us high scores and big paydays.

Stetson Wright is now within $8,000 of No. 1 Sage Newman and with the Washington State Fair, Cinch Playoffs and the Pendleton Round-Up still to come, Wright could catch him.

There is one cowboy on the bubble that we are used to seeing at the top of the World Standings all year long. Wyoming’s Brody Cress has been the National Finals Rodeo the past six consecutive years and of the last four years, he has finished within the Top 6 in the World. This year, Cress is chasing pay days as he looks to secure a spot at his seventh NFR.

Here is your current Top 20 cowboys in the PRCA Saddle Bronc Riding World Standings.

No. 4 Kade Bruno, $183,900

Bruno matched up with the front runner for Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year, Sankey Pro Rodeo and Phenom Genetics’ The Black Tie, in Filer, Idaho to put together an arena record breaking ride at 91 points. His second win came in Walla Walla, Washington with an 87-point ride. These two rides were worth over $8,000 when combined and earned Bruno the Exmark Roughstock Athlete of the Week.

No. 10 Damian Brennan, $121,386

Coming off of a big win in Kennewick, Washington, Brennan is riding a wave of momentum. He placed at the Colorado State Fair with an 84-point ride before he hit 90 once again, this time at the Ellensburg Rodeo. Aboard Birch Bubbles, Brennan picked up the Round 1 win in Ellenburg to finish second in the Agreggate.
