Timed Event Athlete of the Week: Steer Wrestler Kyler Dick Set the Bar at the National Western
Steer Wrestler Kyler Dick made the second-fastest run so far of the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo by throwing one down in 3.8 seconds in the very first performance.
Dick finished as the top bulldogger in Pool 1, securing his spot in the Semifinals while riding Dr. Pepper, a big bay horse of Trevor Nelson’s. It was his first time on the horse in competition and it immediately proved to a be successful pairing.
Dick is fresh off his rookie season in the PRCA where he had success at big rodeos like Pendleton, Red Bluff and the NFR Open. He finished the 2022 season the No. 2 ranked rookie.
With the winter run underway, moving on in Denver is sure to add momentum to Dick’s 2023 season.
