Former NWC rider pockets more than $10,000
Former Northwest College rodeo team member and defending world bull riding champion Shane Proctor kicked off Cowboy Christmas in a big way on Saturday, winning the Cody-Yellowstone Xtreme Bulls tour stop. This marks back-to-back title years in Cody for Proctor.
Forty of the top bull riders in the world standings descended on Cody for Saturday’s showdown in the arena. Proctor was one of just two who could leave that night boasting that they had turned in a pair of scoring rides. As a result, Proctor pocketed approximately $10,300 in prize money, a figure that should vault him back up in the world standings.
