The Score: Season 2, Episode 18 with Justin Davis

NFR qualifier Justin Davis on The Score.

It’s been some 10 years since Cottonwood, California’s Justin Davis rode into the box at the Thomas & Mack with Blaine Linaweaver.

But in that decade, Davis has made two iconic horses—both mares, not too coincidentally—in Lil Kim and Shakira. He’s won the Columbia River Circuit Finals a couple times, and he’s been on the brink of an NFR trip more than once—to no avail. So at 31 years old, Davis is smashing down his hat on a career in sales, while seasoning the next great mare to come through his horse program. He and long-time friend Brandon Beers are circuit rodeoing and amateur rodeoing when both men’s thriving business careers allow, and they’re both using their long-time industry connections to help them excel. Davis stopped to talk with us between visits to feed yards and ranches, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed by the conversation.
