Wyatt Casper’s fourth National Finals Rodeo qualification came in the form of the No. 8 position in the regular season World Standings going into Las Vegas.

The Texas cowboy has already made $142,421 which is just $3,000 shy of 2022 year-end total including the NFR.

Although he might not have as long a list of wins as some, Casper’s strength was winning in the right places. His 2023 regular season has landed him right where he needed to be.


Xtreme Broncs Finals (South Dakota), $30,838

Casper received a massive payday in Rapid City that bumped him off of the bubble and into the Top 10 on Aug. 20. He made two monster rides to cinch the win. He was 89 points on Burch Rodeo’s Pip Squeak to share Round 1 with Ryder Wright before exploding for 92 on J Bar J’s Straight Jacket in the Finals to win with a two-head Average of 181 points on two.


Xtreme Broncs Finals (South Dakota), 92 points

Sticking with the Xtreme Broncs Finals, because it’s really what defined his season, Casper was the last cowboy to nod and when put together a chart topping ride 92-point ride that would also end up being his highest marked ride of the year. The Final Round win paid him close to $8,000 of the $30,000+ he earned in Rapid City.

Jordan Match Xtreme Bronc Ride (Montana), 89.5 points

In the Final Round of the Jordan Match Xtreme Broncs, Casper rode for 89.5 points on Diamond G’s Magic Country Bubbles. This was his second highest marked ride of the season and it came along with a second-place finish in the round and about $2,700. Leon Fountain was first with 90.5 points

Guymon Pioneer Days (Oklahoma), 88.5 points

The first of two big rides this season for Casper on Frontier Rodeo’s Big News came in Oklahoma. He met up with the bronc to make a second-place, 88.5 point ride that was worth almost $3,000. He would do it all again with the same horse just a little further north at another PRCA Playoff Series Rodeo over Cowboy Christmas.

Cody Stampede (Wyoming), 88.5 points

Casper’s Cowboy Christmas came with a second-place finish at the iconic Cody Stampede. A matchup with Frontier Rodeo’s Big News would prove to be worth more than the almost $7,500 payday that came with it as it was Casper’s third highest score of the regular season. He also won $3,100 for a third place finish at the Basin City Freedom Rodeo (Washington) over the Fourth.


Elizabeth Stampede (Colorado), 86 points

During the first weekend of June, Casper rode Kirsten Vold Rodeo Company’s Pine Valley to be 86 points and get the win. Between May 27 and June 10, he also finished second at the 49th State PRCA Xtreme Broncs (Alaska), Old Fort Days (Arkansas) and Parker County Sheriffs Posse Frontier Days (Texas).
