When he was nine, he was given a Will Rogers Trick Roping Kit for Christmas.

He started performing locally that next summer and was in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association circuits by the time he was 11. Rider continues to practice and master the cowboy skills of trick roping, gun spinning, and whip cracking.

In that spirit, Rider competes at the nation’s largest competitions for trick roping and gun spinning. At the age of 24, he has already won 2X World Champion All Around Western Performer, 4X World Champion Trick Roper, and 2X World Champion Gun Spinner. Rider has performed in 49 States (all except Hawaii), Canada, Mexico, Japan, China, Oman, Dubai, Lebanon, Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong and France.
