Wright Family to be Featured on CBS’ ’60 Minutes’

The Wrights, one of ProRodeo’s most well-known families, will be featured on CBS’ “60 Minutes” Sunday at 7 p.m. (ET).

The news show filmed the Wrights during the 2019 season at their home in Milford, Utah, and at rodeos, including the Pony Express Rodeo in Eagle Mountain, Utah.

The Wrights have won numerous saddle bronc riding world championships and will be aiming for more at the 2019 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Dec. 5-14.

Among those featured in the piece is Cody Wright, who won world titles in 2008 and 2010.

Cody’s son Ryder won the 2017 world title and will be entering the 2019 Wrangler NFR in the top spot in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $224,488, the most money earned by a saddle bronc rider before the Finals.

Jake Wright, Jesse’s twin brother and one of Cody’s brothers, is a seven-time qualifier for the Wrangler NFR. Jesse Wright, another seven-time qualifier, won the world title in 2012. Spencer Wright, Cody’s brother, won the 2014 world title.

Rusty Wright, another of Cody’s sons and brother to Ryder and Stetson, has qualified three times.

Stetson Wright, at 20 years old the youngest of the Wrights competing in ProRodeo and Cody’s son, heads into the Finals as the leader in the all-around and in second place in the bull riding.

In addition to Stetson competing in the bull riding and Ryder in the saddle bronc riding at the 2019 Wrangler NFR, Spencer Wright enters the saddle bronc riding in fourth place in the standings, Rusty in fifth and Jesse in 13th.
