Riding into a new legacy
12-year-old bareback rider invited to CFD event usually only open to those with family who have ridden in it-and wins
August 8, 2018
There may not be many 12 year olds who can make a 35-year-old, world champion bareback rider consider retirement, but Tuker Carricato isn't most 12 year olds. Having only been riding for 3 years total, the young Valley resident already has a win at the Junior National Finals Rodeo (JNFR) in Las Vegas under his belt.
This year, Carricato has added victories at Days of '47 in Salt Lake City (SLC), the Junior High National Finals Rodeo in Huron, S.D., where was placed on the Junior High World Finals Rodeo reserve list, and Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) to his list of accomplishments.
