POWER – Seven-time NFR qualifier Jessy Davis plans to hang up the spurs at the end of the 2019 PRCA season he announced in an Instagram post Tuesday.

“As I finished off a great Labor Day weekend rodeoing with my family, it’s time to let everyone know that I’m going to hang my boots up,” Davis said in the post. “I’ve been traveling up and down the rodeo road for over 20 years now and it’s time to stay home on the ranch with my girls.”

Davis and his wife Cassidy live in Power with their 3-year-old twin daughters, Cru and Quincee.

“It’s not an easy decision, but I am very thankful for all of the success I’ve had and thankful for all of my family, friends and sponsors I’ve had along the way,” Davis added.

He added he plans to finish out the year and compete in the Montana Circuit Finals in January before calling it a career.

“I still have a few rodeos left in me,” Davis said. “But come February 2020, my riggin’ will find a safe spot in our home.”

Davis is one of Montana’s most successful bareback riders. In addition to seven NFR qualifications, he’s claimed three Montana circuit titles and qualified for the Ram National Circuit Finals six times. Overcoming several injuries in his career, Davis has amassed $1,176,768 in career earnings.

Most recently, Davis won the White Sulphur Springs rodeo over the Labor Day weekend with an 85-point ride on “Wild Eyes” from JS Rodeo and the Dillon Jaycees PRCA Rodeo with an 84-point score on Sankey’s Steppin Dynamite.
