Fun Facts about Justin: When he was a toddler, he would watch the WNFR while riding his stick horse around the living room, pretending that he was competing there. He came close in 2019 and 2020 finishing in 17th and 18th places respectively. This year his childhood dreams are coming true thanks in part to a win at the Reno Rodeo in Nevada. It was the biggest win of his career so far and set the path for the rest of his summer. He has been riding a horse he calls Doc that is as close to a family member as a four-legged animal could be. Doc was trained by Justin’s dad, Alfred, and Justin started competing on him when he was in junior high school.
