CBR World Finals qualifier Tim Bingham among National Finals Rodeo Qualifiers


 CBR World Finals qualifier Tim Bingham among National Finals Rodeo Qualifiers


Tim Bingham, CBR World Finalist, Utah Two Time Utah High School Rodeo Champion and the 2013 National Intercollegiate Rodeo Bull Riding Champion, will be making his third trip to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo next month. 

Since  turning pro in 2012, Bingham has earned over half a million dollars riding bucking bulls and considers himself a fourth quarter player, which is good news since he is qualified for the last event of the PRCA season, and is no doubt planning on adding to that figure in a few weeks. 

In 2016 Bingham placed in two rounds of the NFR to finish in 10th place. Bingham won over $30,000 at his first NFR in 2014 and finished that season as one of the top 5 bull riders which allowed him to be entered in some of the larger PRCA sanctioned events in 2015, but injuries including a broken foot and arm, would plague him he would miss the 2015 PRCA’s finale event in Las Vegas.

Cheyenne Frontier Days aficionados will remember Tim Bingham from the wreck that took place during his ride in the rodeo portion of CFD in 2015.  Despite his unfortunate ending in Cheyenne he still looks forward to being back at the Daddy of Em All each year.

Tim Bingham, a favorite among bull riders on the rodeo trail with his positive attitude and friendly demeanor.

Tim’s CBR Road to Cheyenne included six events in 2016-17 with CBR. He made an impact on the 2016 season with three 90 point plus rides in CBR competition and was a permanent fixture in the final four Shoot Out rounds.

“Love what you do or do something else” is Tim Bingham’s philosophy of life. And bull riding. Contestants

He grew up in a rodeo family in West Haven, Utah.  Riding horses, bucking ponies before bulls, Tim competed in every event including soccer, basketball, track and wrestling.


Father Knows Best

After a long 12 months riding and competing in all levels of the professional industry including CBR, PBR, and PRCA, Tim stands firm on his philosophy which he developed from advice from his Dad.

“If you are going to do it, then do it right and all the way. When you don’t like it anymore then don’t do it,” are the words he respects from his father who is a general contractor when he is not watching his sons ride bulls. 

“That always fires me up when he says that, and it makes me think about remembering to enjoy where I am right now,” continued Bingham.

Bingham is a believer in the practice pen and when he is not rodeoing that is where you will find him.

Bingham is the 2013 National Intercollegiate National (NIRA) Finals Rodeo Champion. Representing Hillsboro College in 2013, Bingham won the title with three of four qualified rides.  After winning the first round of the NIRA National Championship with a score of 83.5, Bingham landed on his free hand and broke his wrist and arm in three places. He proceeded to ride three more times and scored twice (79.5 and 79 in the championship round) to claim the title.

If that does not impress you should know that he started the competition with a broken foot!

“With Tim’s guts, determination and brains he will go far in the rodeo world,” said Paul Brown, his rodeo coach. Bingham was a model student athlete as he not only won the NIRA National Championship in bull riding, but he was an Academic All-American the same year.
