The saddle bronc was all about family at the Farm-City Pro Rodeo on Saturday, and in the end the youth won out.

Rusty Wright, a rookie from Utah on his first summer tour with two high school national titles under his belt, scored an 83 to share a piece of first place with Samuel Kelts from Alabama.

Wright beat out his dad, Cody, and uncle, Spencer, who are also his travel partners. Rusty is in the lead for PRCA saddle bronc rookie of the year, which his uncles Spencer and Jesse both won.

Steven Peebles of Redmond stole the bareback show on Saturday, bucking fellow Oregonian Bobby Mote and two other riders out of the top spot with an 87.

In the bull riding grand finale, Steve Woolsey rode Wild Eyes for 88 points, easily notching the title.

Charly Crawford and Shay Carroll won the team roping with 9.4 seconds on two rides, Clint Robinson walked away with the tie-down title at 16.9 seconds and Jake Rienhart of Highmore, SD finished atop the steer wrestlers with 12.6 seconds on the clocks and won the Mike Currin Memorial Buckle for his efforts.

Carlee Pierce of Stephenville, Texas finished with the best barrel racing time, clocking in at 34.05 seconds.
