Fun Facts about Leighton: Dreams are coming true this year for Berry as he makes his first appearance in the Thomas and Mack Center at the WNFR. He qualified in 2020 when rodeo championships were in his home state of Texas, then finished 24th in 2021 in spite of missing most of the season with an injury. He tore ligaments in his spine, had surgery to repair them, and was out from January until August. This year he has been healthy and did something that most contestants only dream of, he won his hometown rodeo. He earned nearly $1,500 at the Parker County Sherriff’s Posse Frontier Days and PRCA Rodeo, then headed west and got the silver spurs at Reno. Leighton is a second-generation bareback rider that also loves roping. After his injury and surgery, one of the first things he looked forward to was getting back on a horse, first a saddle horse, then a bucking horse.
