Fun Facts about Ryder: Just five years ago, he was the champion in the National High School Rodeo Association. The next year he qualified for his first WNFR and won every round that he placed in. In 2017 he won the gold buckle given to the world’s best. In 2019, Ryder was in the lead of the competition going into the WNFR, but a disappointing finals saw him drop to 12th. He is anxious to win another gold buckle to join his father as a Wright family member with two world championships. His dad Cody won them in 2008 and 2010. Ryder and his wife, Cheyenne, have one daughter, Bexley. He will be competing at Globe Life Field with his brothers Rusty and Stetson.
