Canadian Bareback Rider Kody Lamb Splits Ogden Win

Bareback rider Kody Lamb is making a frantic push to make his Wrangler National Finals Rodeo debut in 2021.

The Canadian cowboy helped his cause by splitting the win at the Ogden (Utah) Pioneer Days with an 86.5-point ride on Stace Smith Pro Rodeos’ Mr. Harry.

Lamb split the win at the rodeo that concluded July 24, with reigning PRCA Bareback Riding World Champion Kaycee Field who had an 86-point ride on Korkow Rodeos’ Meat Coma.

“It was a really good horse, I knew he was going to really buck, and I was happy to have him,” Lamb said about Stace Smith Pro Rodeos’ Mr. Harry.

“He was pretty strong out there and it worked out.”

Lamb and Field each earned $5,231, which should give Lamb a much-needed boost. He was 33rd in the most recent PRCA | RAM World Standingswith $15,294.

The 27-year-old cowboy, out of Alberta, Canada, is optimistic this season will end with him competing at the coveted Wrangler NFR.

Even with such high stakes, Lamb isn’t letting the pressure get to him.

“Just got to take it one day at a time, not get the cart out in front of the horse,” Lamb said. “I’m just going to stay focused on trying to do my job every day and riding every horse as good as I can.”

Having qualified for the Canadian Finals Rodeo in 2016 and 2019, as well as being named 2014 PRCA Resistol Rookie of the Year, Lamb is used to being patient during a long season on the road. He said this year, NFR qualification or not, is no different.

“There are a lot of rodeos left, and I’ve still have a lot of work to do before I start thinking about ( the NFR),” Lamb said.

The next stop for Lamb is Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days Rodeo, a big stop on the ProRodeo Tour, where he hopes to continue his streak of qualified rides and visiting the pay window.

Other winners at the $266,122 rodeo were all-around cowboy Tanner Green ($4,019, tie-down roping and team roping); steer wrestler Dirk Tavenner (3.5 seconds); team ropers Dustin Egusquiza and Travis Graves (10.1 seconds on two head); saddle bronc rider Riggin Smith (90.5 points on Korkow Rodeos’ Onion Ring); tie-down roper Quade Hiatt (7.3 seconds); barrel racer Hailey Kinsel (17.19 seconds); and bull rider Sage Kimzey (87.5 points on Universal Pro Rodeos’ East Side).
