Refreshed Stetson Wright Has Sights Set on Second Consecutive Big Weekend after Round Win in Puyallup

Stetson Wright continues to dominate wherever he goes. This time it was at the Cinch Playoffs in Puyallup where he was marked 89 points to win the opening round. It was a rematch of a bull Wright got on in Calgary, and while he received a score, there were rumblings that he didn’t deserve one.

“I got on that bull in Calgary and got a lot of backlash saying I didn’t technically stay on him,” Said Wright. “I’m not sure what more you could want out of me today. I rode him as good as anyone could and it reflected in the score”

If you follow Wright closely, you may have noticed that he was primarily riding bucking horses and taking a break from bulls. It turns out that was by design.

“I started getting thrown off stuff that I shouldn’t and my dad advised that I should come home and get it feeling right. When I came back out rodeoing I was just getting on bucking horses.”

It’s clear his father knows best as Stetson is on a hot streak of late.

“Seems like every time I listen to him I come back and have these rides and weeks that I’ve been having. I feel good, and he’s right once again.”

Stetson is No. 1 in the PRCA Bull Riding World Standings and now he is No. 1 in the Cinch Playoffs heading into Friday’s Performance.
