Question 1: How did you get introduced into the rodeo and bull riding industry?
Thad Newell: My whole family has been in rodeo. From bull doggers to bareback riders.
Question 2: Interesting! So did you try any of those other events your family did.. Before, you chose to focus on bull riding?
Thad Newell: Yes, I still rope a lot. I started roping calves first then started riding bulls after that. Also steer wrestled since I was 17
Question 3: Holy Cow! So why didn’t you decide to go for the all-around title in PRCA?
Thad Newell: That would be awesome but takes lots of resources and lots of help. I always wanted to though.
Question 4: This is true! So talk to us about your 2014 bull riding season. I saw from several of your posts you competed in quite a few different associations this year.
Thad Newell: I have had lots of ups an downs. A few injuries but that’s part of it. All I can do is heal up an never give up.
Question 5: Throughout your whole bull riding career.. What has been the craziest hang up you’ve been in?
