Taking the Steer by the Horns with Rodeo Champ Dale Yerigan

April 5, 2021

Giddyup! This week we were joined by a very special guest, Dale Yerigan! Dale is an ELEVEN TIME steer wrestling champion and is now General Manager of the International Pro Rodeo Association! Scott, Jason, and Will were careful to ask the right questions of Dale so as not to be thrown to the ground and tied up!
Don’t be fooled by his southern drawl, Dale actually grew up in Minnesota, where he was a roper at local events. As a life-long rodeo enthusiast and professional for decades, Dale shared the basics of rodeo, the economics of the sport, and how shows and movies like Urban Cowboy and Yellowstone have influenced rodeo. He also explained the process of qualifying for participating in a professional rodeo, much to Scott’s disappointment as he hoped to pick up some extra cash on the rodeo circuit! Whoa boy!
