Chase Brooks winning on purpose

Chase Brooks winning on purpose saddle bronc rodeo cowboy montana nfr las vegas

Chase Brooks is a professional cowboy, from Montana, that competes in saddle bronc events at rodeos around the country. Being raised on a ranch in Montana gave Chase a look at being a cowboy from the day he was born. His decision to compete in saddle bronc was easy after spending some time on bulls. He left the bull riding up to his brother and Chase stuck with saddle bronc. 2021 was his best year, finishing 4th in the world and 2nd at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Having his best NFR at the end of the year gave him a successful mindset start for 2022.

The life of a cowboy is traveling from rodeo to rodeo and making the most of each and every stop. Just like all of us business travelers, Chase has to deal with breakdowns, flat tires, rising gas prices, heat, cold, and sometimes having to miss family and friends special days while earning a living. It was great to hear how he is able to stay focused on being the best in the world while handling “everything” else going on in his life.
