Wyatt moved into the early bareback lead on Thursday at the Santa Maria Elks Rodeo in California when he posted a score of 80 points riding Time 2 Play. The rodeo ends today.
The Denny brothers also rode together on Friday night in Central Point, Ore.
It’s just part of a busy PRCA schedule they’ve pursued, mostly in California.
Grant and Wyatt placed first and second respectively at the Stonyford Rodeo on May 5-6. Grant also won at the Stampede Days Rodeo in Bakersfield, while Wyatt placed fourth the same weekend.
Wyatt was a winner on Mother’s Day at the Mother Lode Round-Up in Sonora, Calif. Wyatt also tied Clayton Biglow for first place at Riverdale, Calif.
