ARLINGTON, Texas — Utah cowboys swept all of the roughstock events in the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Saturday night, taking home gold buckles in bareback bronc riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding. In addition, the all-around cowboy title once again comes home to Utah for the second year in a row.
Kaycee Feild from Genola, Utah has secured his fifth bareback world title. Kaycee won the 10th and final round of the NFR in Arlington, Texas Saturday night. His 91-point ride secured enough money to edge out Tim O’Connell for the top spot.
Ryder Wright from Milford, Utah has won his second world title in the saddle bronc competition. Ryder edged out Wyatt Casper for the number one ranking by tying for first place in the final round of the rodeo.
Stetson Wright, Ryder's younger brother, won not one, but two gold buckles in the NFR. He beat out Ty Wallace by $11,000 in the final round of bull riding to secure his first world championship in that event. On Friday night, he secured the all-around title by earning the most money of any cowboy in two events.

The champions even got a shout-out from Utah Governor-elect Spencer Cox:
“Look out Utah...send the Brink’s truck!” Not 1, not 2, not 3, but FOUR world championships for Utah cowboys. Congratulations to Stetson Wright (bull riding and all-around), Ryder Wright (saddle bronc) and Kaycee Field (bareback). Just incredible. https://t.co/NaKfhRqw4t
