There’s no doubt about it: Derrick Begay is the fan-favorite, whether he’s rodeoing hard, easing around the Turquoise Circuit or off the grid ranching.

In this episode from April 2022, Derrick Begay, 39, of Seba Dalkai, talks to The Score Host Chelsea Shaffer about where he is in his ProRodeo career, the advice he has for young ropers with a dream and his partnership with Colter Todd.

This episode is brought to you by Bimeda Animal Health.

After this interview, Begay did rodeo with Todd throughout the summer, enough to finish just outside the top 15 on the head side after running out of rodeos the last week of the season. When asked if he’ll retire from rodeo, Begay answered, “I don’t think I’ll ever retire from rodeo.” And we all hope that’s the truth.

Begay’s stats:

  • $1.45 million in career ProRodeo earnings
  • American Rodeo Champion with Clay O’Brien Cooper in 2016
  • 9 NFR qualifications
  • Joined PRCA in 2004
  • Roping in 2023 with Colter Todd
  • Reigning Turquoise Circuit Finals Champion with Todd, will rope at 2023 NFR Open
