[Updates: Las Vegas Rodeo Round 4] Jess Pope is benefitting from two strong runs in bareback riding to open the 10-day event, even overtaking the previous leader Kaycee Feild in the world standings in the process. Stetson Wright’s $200,000 lead in the All-Around standings is far from being threatened, though the places right behind him have changed hands daily.

Preview for NFR 2021
There’s been a lot of movement in the competition standings in each of the events at this year’s National Finals Rodeo. Already, however, Round 3 saw some of the top talents start to find their footing. With more data from Round 4 and moving forward, those cowboys should continue to climb the leaderboard as their consistency balances out stellar performances.
Round 3 on Saturday saw all-around leader Stetson Wright turn in his best performance so far at the NFR in saddle bronc riding, securing a second-place finish. The effort earned him another $21,336 on his record-setting winnings account, and more importantly, helped him fend off Ryder Wright in the event. Stetson’s older brother, Ryder is just under $12,000 away from catching the world leader, though you could say he’s pushing him as well.
