Fun Facts about Stetson: He just keeps setting records and then breaking them. He did that again this year in the regular season standings in bull riding and is on track to get his third gold buckle in that event. He’s also leading the saddle bronc riding and all-around standings and has set a goal of bringing three gold buckles home to Utah. His first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualification was in 2019. That year he won his first all-around title, and he has won that buckle every year since then. He has a substantial lead over Ky Hamilton in the bull riding. If Stetson doesn’t win the buckle, his next wish would be for his best friend, adopted brother, traveling and business partner, to win it. Stetson and Ky have teamed up in the stock contracting business this year as well. Their company DJ Bucking Bulls is a reflection of their passion for the sport and respect for each other.
