Rookie Keenan Hayes Breaks Single-Season Bareback Earnings Record

Keenan Hayes has surpassed all expectations this season as the rookie has now broken the single-season earnings record in the bareback riding with $246,895 in total.

Hayes has punched his ticket to his first National Final Rodeo after securing fifteen wins throughout the regular season thus far including Rodeo Austin, San Angleo Cinch Chute-Out, and the NFR Open in Colorado Springs.

Hayes is no stranger to breaking earnings records as the 20-year-old cowboy cashed in throughout his 2022 season where he set the record for most money earned on a PRCA permit.
