Fun Facts about Ryder: He doesn’t really know what it’s like to have a December without a Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He spent his youth traveling to Las Vegas to watch his father and uncles. Then he made his own way there in 2016 and hasn’t missed competing at rodeo’s championships since. He won gold buckles in 2016 and again in 2022. This year along with his success in the arena, he and wife, Cheyenne welcomed a bouncing baby boy into the family. Rebel Ryder Wright was born July 21st and Ryder made sure that he was there and took time off to be with his family which also includes their daughter, Bexley. His time away from the rodeo arena is spent training young horses and while he working to teach them, he has said that he is learning even more. Those horsemanship lessons can come in handy in saddle bronc riding too. Ryder is passing his love of horses on to the next generation. Bexley is competing in barrel racing and learning to rope. The family is so grateful for Rebel and it will be fun to see where his interests lie as he grows up.
