Dylan Grant brings home bull riding buckle at State High School Finals

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Dylan Grant grew up in rodeo. The young bull rider has eased himself down on many a bad one at the local Jackson Hole Rodeo only to find his payday was a mouthful of dirt.

Dylan Grant with Riggen Myers, Wyatt Phelps, and Donny Proffit at Sweetwater Events Complex last weekend.

But last weekend, Grant was magic. At the 2018 Wyoming High School Rodeo Association state competition in Rock Springs, Grant’s combined 208.5 score handily beat out all comers making him the bull riding champ of the event. Wyatt Phelps was the next closest competitor with a 151.5 score. The win also qualifies Grant for Nationals next month.

Representing a western sport that refuses to fade in an ever-changing world, Grant could make a profession out of riding. He’s that good.

Grant was the winner of First Go, Short Go, Average, and Year End. He’s raked in a couple of buckles, a saddle, plaque, $200 from Kings Saddlery, and Cinch Jeans swag. The young cowboy has also earned a PRCA permit.

College scholarship offers are pouring in as well. Grant has three scholarships to date from WY State Rodeo Association, King’s Saddlery, and the Sydney Lee Judge Foundation. Grant is currently attending Sheridan College where he is a member of the rodeo team.

What a difference between bull rides. The only way to get better is to get bucked off every now and then. Here is Dylan getting bucked off of Rojo at the Jackson Hole Rodeo in 2014.

Now, here is Dylan in the Short Go at the Sweetwater Events Complex with a masterful 80-point ride. Watch as the young cowboy handles a spinner moving away from his hand and then adjusts smoothly when the bull turns back. He’s up on him. He’s in the rocking chair. This ride is legit.
