Horizon Series Finals Begin Tonight!

 

Championship Bull Riding’s Horizon Series riders begin their three-day season finale tonight in Winnie, Tex. With $40,000 in added money and a Dodge truck up for grabs, it’s sure to be a fight to the finish with some of the best bull riders and bucking bulls in the sport.

            CBR Cinch Tour rider Cody White is currently sitting atop the Horizon Series leader board. White, from Belton, Tex., finished the Cinch Tour season in fifth place. He started the season off right with a win in Jackson, Tenn. and continued to do well at Horizon Series events all year long. He will undoubtedly look to wrap up his hold on the championship buckle in Winnie.

            CBR Reserve World Champion Chase Outlaw sits just behind White in the Horizon Series standings. At just 19 years old, Outlaw exploded onto the CBR scene this year and added several event wins to his resume, including the CBR Cinch Tour Finale in Loveland, Colo. While White has the lead, Outlaw’s riding has been top notch.

            Michael Earl of Pflugerville, Tex. is third in the current Horizon series standings, sitting less than 200 points behind Chase Outlaw. Most of Earl’s CBR experience has been at Horizon events but he proved at this year’s George Paul Memorial Bull Riding that he can hang with the top riders in the sport. Although his name’s not as recognizable as the top two riders in the standings, he’s certainly not one to rule out.

            Weatherford, Tex. native Luke Haught is the fourth rider in the Horizon Series standings. Haught finished ninth in the CBR Cinch Tour standings and won the last Horizon series event he attended by edging out third place contender, Michael Earl.

            Rounding out the top five in the Horizon Series standings is Stevo Keighley of Williston, Fl. Keighley started the season off big with a 90-point ride aboard Twist N Shout at Lufkin’s Cinch Tour event. Despite having few qualified rides late in the season, he finished the CBR Cinch Tour standings in the top 15 and will most likely look to end his season strong at Winnie.
