Casper College’s Quinten Taylor won’t soon forget his first round at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper. He is competing on both bulls and broncs. The Canadian T-Bird placed second in bull riding on Sunday staying on for 79.5 points. ‘Q’ displayed mucho moxie in the saddle bronc riding competition choosing a re-ride even though his first attempt made the whistle for a good score. He bucked up a couple of points on the second horse and finished eighth. Taylor sustained a shoulder injury late in the spring college rodeo season and required a heavy regimen of physical therapy to be ready for the CNFR.
