Extremely Scary Moment In Casper For CNFR Cowboy
Rodeo is a tough sport and injuries happen. A scary moment for everyone in attendance on Monday at the Ford Wyoming Center. Southeastern Oklahoma State bareback bronc rider Dylan Riggins was injured during Slack in the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper.
According to the CNFR, Riggins was transported to the Wyoming Medical Center for serious injuries including a broken collar bone, broken ribs and other various injuries after the horse he was riding in the the bareback competition rolled on top of him. According to sources, the horse ran into the wall and fell backwards onto the ground with the horses full weight falling on Riggins. Medical staff immediately rushed to Dylan's aid inside the rodeo arena before the cowboy was transported to the hospital. Riggins is expected to make a full recovery but no word on when he would be released from the hospital.
The 24 year old graduate student at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Riggins is a South Dakota native that's participating in his 4th CNFR. Dylan previously participated with Panhandle State, New Mexico State and now with Southeastern Oklahoma State University as a graduate student.
