Chase Brooks | Saddle Bronc

Chase and I were neighbors when I first moved to Bozeman, Montana five years ago. He was always a genuine friend that I could count on. After a perf in Pierre, South Dakota, a stranger came up to him and that authentic character was reaffirmed when I overhead Chase tell the man: "I want to be the good person who wins gold buckles. I don't want to sacrifice the good person aspect of that." 

It was fun to watch Chase win my hometown rodeo in St. Paul, Oregon last summer- but even more exhilarating to watch him carry out being a good person.
