Get ready! Tyler Bingham of Honeyville, Utah, has joined the KRJ family.
Upon meeting Bingham, it became clear he shared the same authentic western vibe Kimes Ranch was built on and perfectly aligned with the family atmosphere of the KRJ team.
"So far, I like every style, but my favorite is the Raw Dillion jeans,” Bingham said.
Bingham's started competing in rodeos at the age of 7 and hasn't slowed down since.
Like many, he got his start in youth rodeos around Utah, and the industry quickly became a big part of his life. What started as a mutton busting pastime, he has turned into a full-blown bull riding career.
"I didn't like riding sheep much," Bingham joked. "Mutton busting was just a stepping stone." One he was glad to graduate from. From there, he made his way to calves, then mini bulls and steers. But once Bingham turned 11, he had the opportunity to jump in with the big bulls - and hasn't looked back.
"There's nothing like it. I love what I do because the industry is great, but the adrenaline rush is another big reason why."
Before sticking to only bulls, he's tried his hand in saddle broncs, team roping, and roped calves but nothing compared to hanging tight to a 2000 lb. animal, fixated on dumping you off its back.
Bingham’s has had a great start to his second consecutive year at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada - something he's worked hard to achieve. With a round one 90 point ride and 3rd place finish landing him a check for $15,654. (He is currently sitting 5th in the world with $153,181 in earnings.)
When asked what he was looking forward to most at the NFR, Bingham stated, "The great bulls and competing with the best rodeo athletes in the world." We couldn't agree more and are excited to be part of his rodeo career.
