RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The 2014 Reno Rodeo is six days in and there have already been some big names making their way through the Biggest Little City. But it is a familiar face who is taking the sport by storm.
Bareback Bronc Rider Kaycee Feild is a three-time defending world champion. He is only 27, and has won the Silver Spurs in Reno several times.
Feild has made over $1.3 million in career earnings and continues to add to the bank. He said the Reno Rodeo is one of his favorites. "Its a lot of fun here in Reno, especially during the finals. The crowd really gets into it. They get loud, and the cowboys can hear that. So, it's a lot of fun for us."
Feild said he never expects to win, but does have a few goals set. "This is one of the rodeos in my little notebook that I hope to win. It's always good to have a lot of confidence going into the Fourth of July, so this really helps to get it kicked off and get going."
Feild tried to stay calm before an event that can really make a competitor nervous. "Riding bucking horses can get you really nervous, especially in a place like this. I just try to hold it all in until I get on the horse, the let it all go and give it everything I have."
Feild is eyeing his fourth consecutive world championship, and he is off to a hot start. He is likely to make the finals at the Reno Rodeo.
