WNFR Bareback Rider Laye Sidelined

by ProRodeo.com | May 16, 2016

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Bareback rider Clint Laye, who made his debut at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER in December, will be out of action for six to eight weeks after breaking his left (riding arm) elbow May 13.

Laye suffered the injury while riding Rosser Rodeo’s 147 at the Helldorado Days Rodeo in Las Vegas.

“I got on a colt and it started really good in front of the chutes, and then at about four seconds it just lost its footing and fell down to the left,” Laye said. “My (left) elbow stuck in the ground, and the horse’s back rolled over my elbow. It’s really frustrating to have this happen.”

Laye, from Bashaw, Alberta, has had a rough go of things in 2016, as he’s only been to three rodeos this season because of injuries.

“I hurt my neck in February right after Fort Worth,” Laye said. “Then, I tried to ride at San Antonio and I couldn’t. This (Helldorado Days) was my first rodeo back and I broke my elbow, so this was pretty disappointing.”

A year ago, Laye finished 10th in the world standings with $142,346. He placed in four rounds at the WNFR and collected $62,038.
