CoBurn Bradshaw – Beaver, Utah
2-time WNFR qualifier
1-time RNCFR qualifier
When CoBurn Bradshaw married into the Wright family three years ago, he got more than a beautiful wife in Rebecca.
Two years later, he was traveling with his brothers-in-law and was getting advice on the rodeo trail from world champion and Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) qualifiers. CoBurn went to college at Western Texas in Snyder first and won the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association title in 2014.
His breakout year in the PRCA was last year where he qualified for the NFR, won nearly one-quarter of a million dollars and finished as the top rookie in the saddle bronc riding. At 22-years-old, he comes into this year’s NFR in second place, higher than any of the Wrights.
Coburn is $12,810 ahead of Rusty Wright, who is Rebecca’s nephew. He has $130,752 in regular-season earnings, gained by winning 11 rodeos, being co-champion at two others and earning checks at a bunch more.
He was the second highest money winner in the bronc riding in the Thomas and Mack in 2015 at $163,577 and finished second in the average riding all 10 horses for a total of 803.5 points. He moved from 14th place to fourth.
There is no doubt that the Wright clan will be cheering for CoBurn during all 10 nights in Vegas. He and Rebecca have a daughter Vaida who will 18-months-old during the competition. They also just added son to their family in October, Lafe. This year, he will be riding alongside his hero and mentor, Cody Wright who has been a big influence in all of their lives.
