“The main reason I bought my PRCA card was so I could compete in the Montana Circuit,” Scott said. Scott has earned $97,664 in his ProRodeo career – $61,515 in tie-down roping. As of June 22, he was second in the Montana Circuit tie-down roping standings, trailing only reigning world champion Haven Meged. “My favorite event is tie-down roping,” Scott said. “Our whole family trains a bunch of rope horses, so I enjoy getting our own horses going.

It seems like I always do my best in rodeo in August when things slow down at our ranch and I get to practice.

If I couldn’t take my family, I probably wouldn’t rodeo that much.” With his family able to watch, Scott plans on continuing to rodeo for years to come. “I would like to go another five or 10 years,” Scott said. “As long as I can be competitive and have good horses, I will continue to do it.”
