Tanner Aus performed like a veteran at his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) in 2015. He won over $80,000 there and finished the year in sixth place.

That set him up nicely for 2016 where he enters the competition in fourth place with $112,684 in regular season earnings. The 2012 National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association champion is representing his home state of Minnesota very well.

Tanner was the first bareback rider to ride in Las Vegas in 16 years. He grew up in rodeo and watched his father John compete. John won the Great Lakes Circuit bareback riding title in 1988, two years before Tanner was born.

Family support has been integral to Tanner’s success and that family recently grew. He and longtime girlfriend Lonissa Jones recently got married.

This year Tanner enters the NFR in fourth place with $112,684 in earnings. He’s also had the best year of his six years of membership in the PRCA. There is little doubt that he will win a world championship. If and when that happens, he will be the first Minnesota resident to earn a gold buckle in any of the PRCA events.

Prior to this year’s NFR, he will compete for the Great Lakes Circuit bareback riding title. He is second in the standings behind Tim O’Connell. They will get a little friendly competition going there before duking it out for a world title in Las Vegas.
