One of the best competitions within the overall competition itself on Sunday in Round 4 of the 2021 National Finals Rodeo continues to be in bareback riding. After Jess Pope overtook the reigning champion, Kaycee Feild, on Saturday night in the world rankings, Feild jockeyed right back, to reclaim the top spot. Pope, however, still holds the average lead at the NFR, with Feild close behind. This bit of a rivalry is a continuation of the close competition that fans saw last year too. The 2021 National Finals Rodeo continues on Sunday, December 5 inside the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In addition to the Feild/Pope battle in bareback riding, team roping saw a pair of world leaders take the lead in the event. Kaleb Driggers and former all-around champion Junior Nogueira are the top header and heeler respectively and showed that on Sunday. Their time of 4.1 seconds was the best in the field that was separated by seven-tenths of a second.
Monday Round 5 Preview
It was a rough day in the bull riding competition, as only Dustin Donovan Bouquet and current leader Parker Breding recorded scores. Breding’s performance helped him overcome Creek Young in the world rankings for third place. He now sits just over $20,000 away from current all-around leader Stetson Wright for second place
Speaking of the all-around rankings, Caleb Smidt is still attempting to close the $200,000 gap between himself and Wright. Smidt and Tuf Case Cooper, who is just $20,000 behind in fourth place in the all-around standings, each tied for second in tie-down roping in Round 4. It is Smidt, however, who is the current leader in the event. Both performers have a lot of ground to cover to catch Wright and there are just five rounds left in this year’s competition. Wright has been able to do just enough to maintain his enormous lead.
