Bruce is a member of the NSPRA, PRCA, and World Series of Team Roping. He rode his first calf when he was only 8 years old. That day was the beginning of a lifetime of "cowboying" for Bruce. He started his rodeo career riding bulls and broncs in the Nebraska High School Rodeo Association, Grand Canyon Pro Rodeo Association. He went on to become a Professional Bull Rider and Bullfighter in the PRCA and NSPRA where he continues to compete. Bruce loves rodeo and bringing the excitement of the sport to local communities. He takes the time to speak to the young kids that are interested in the sport and help give them direction and positive instruction and encouragement.
Bruce has trained horses for over 30 years, and is known for his well-mannered and well-trained horses. He trains them in various disciplines; roping, reining, barrels, ranch, trails, etc. based on the directions the horse seems to naturally tend to lean to. He works with problem horses to fix their issues. He uses a gentle approach when training, gaining mutual trust and respect with the horse.
