Utah High School Bull Riding Champion Dalton Allred Joins WSR Ahead of Big Summer

The 16-year-old hopes to grab a title at the Cinch World Championship Junior Rodeo at the end of July

Dalton Allred, a 16-year-old bull rider from Cleveland, Utah, recently claimed a High School State Championship will be competing for a National Title July 14-20 in Wyoming.

Although Allred has begun to make a name for himself in bull riding, this is not the sport he originally set out to to compete in professionally. The young cowboy originally hoped to one day play in the NBA but sustained two torn ACLs on the same knee a year apart. Rather than being discouraged at the loss of his dreams, Allred shifted his attention to a new direction.

“I’m super thankful for everything that happened to get me here. If it wouldn’t have happened, I wouldn’t want it as bad,” Allred said. “Now, I want to keep succeeding and keep winning.”

Allred continues his summer journey in hopes of claiming the World Championship Junior Rodeo Bull Riding Title July 23-27.

“Traveling down to Oklahoma, to that nice arena (the Lazy E), I’m super excited for that and all of the money that’s there,” he said. “And to get myself out there and hopefully show everyone what I am capable of.”
