Kelly Timberman loves rodeo. He came from a rodeo family, his dad was a successful bareback rider. Only problem was, when it came time for Kelly to follow in his father’s footsteps, his parents applied the brakes. They didn’t want him and his brother to rodeo. They wanted something better for their boys. But as Kelly says, “what’s better than rodeo?”
Sam Finden didn’t grow up on a ranch or with a professional rodeo cowboy for a dad. He was just a regular Minnesota kid who played hockey and raced motocross. But that all changed when he moved to Steamboat Springs, CO as a young adult and began volunteering at the local rodeo. He learned to rope and got a job as a wrangler at a guest ranch.
