18-year-old Rocker Steiner, “the rising star with championship bloodlines running through his veins,” just proved he could be one of the best bareback riders in rodeo history.
During the Riggin Rally in Darby, Montana, he scored 95 points on his ride on Virgil, the 2017 PRCA Bareback Horse of the Year. The C5 Rodeo powerhouse scored 23.5/25 points, while Steiner was able to smack down 24/25 points.
Steiner, who is currently holding #10 in Bareback Standings as a rookie, seems to be a force to be reckoned with. Announcer Bob Tallman said it best, “You’re watching an 18 year old young man on the course of a legendary career,” and honestly, this guy seems to be unstoppable in his rookie year so far. As we move forward into Cowboy Christmas, we are very excited to see how well Steiner does on his road to NFR.
This matchup will literally gave you full body chills when you see it. Huge congratulations to Rocker and the rest of the Steiner family, and to C5 Rodeo’s Virgil for an amazing ride.
