CALDWELL, Idaho - There is a shootout going on in rodeo’s bareback riding and over 6,500 fans at the Friday Caldwell Night Rodeo (CNR) got to see Kaycee Feild and Clayton Biglow going at it firsthand.

Feild, from Genola, Utah, is a four-time world champion who is looking for his fifth title and leads the world standings. Biglow is a rising star looking for his first world title who is less than $5,000 behind Feild. They both were among the bareback riders here Friday and both will be staying to compete for a CNR rodeo championship on Saturday.

First to ride was the veteran. He got on Fettig Pro Rodeo’s horse named Classic Rock and when the judges added up their scores, he had an 89-point ride to take the lead here. Soon after it was Biglow’s turn. He rode a horse from Northcott Macza for 86 points putting him in a tie for second place.

With just three points between them, the CNR title could easily go to either one of them. Feild has already won $3,526 here. Biglow, who tied with Steven Peebles from Redmond, Ore., got a check for $2,351.

Both of these men are headed to Las Vegas next December to compete at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo with their current season earnings. The battle for a world title will play out over 10 nights there, but prior to that, they will be in a battle for the lead in the standings.

Both are former champions here as well. Feild won here in 2012 and Biglow won in 2017. The top 12 in every event except bareback riding will advance to Saturday night’s Championships. In the bull riding, there is one full round of competition, so a new set of bull riders will be coming to town to try to add their names to the leaderboard.

Saturday night’s Championship round will get underway at 8 p.m., where event winners will be crowned and the lion’s share of $324,000 in prize money will be paid.
