National Finals Rodeo header Drew Horner's life has taken him away from professional rodeo and into the world of business, making him an ideal guest for Episode 3 on Season 2 of "The Score", The Team Roping Journal's hit podcast.
Horner, who won the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo in 2013, the Bob Feist Invitational in 2014 and the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo in 2015, stepped away from rodeo completely to join the world of business full time. His perspective offers a look into the world of team roping from the outside looking in, while he reminisces about some of his greatest wins in and out of the arena.
"I knew I was going to miss something," Horner said. "I had days where I was emotional about it. And then there were days I was excited about what I was going to do in the future, but I was slowly transitioning out of it. I knew that I had other things I'd be doing in life. I'd accomplished everything I wanted to do in rodeo. I made the Finals, won some majors, had fun, loved it. That's what I wanted to do. That's when I knew my time here was done."
Horner's episode launches everywhere you listen to podcasts Thursday, Feb. 21.
The next episode of "The Score" launches March 7, telling the story of one of the greatest horses of all time, Oklahoma Top Hat, known as Scooter, and ridden by Charles Pogue.
