Paden Bray

Paden Bray won the NFR average title in his first appearance at rodeo’s big show in 2020, and the Stephenville, Texas native returned to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo again in 2021.

Heeling for Brenten Hall, Bray won the Salt Lake City Days of ’47 Rodeo in 2023, and he won the all-around at the California Rodeo Salinas days earlier. Bray was the 2019 Resistol Rookie of the Year in the heeling, getting his partner Rogers to another NFR where Rogers headed for Kyle Lockett.

Bray won the American Rodeo with Rogers in 2021 to the tune of $100,000 a man, and he finished the 2022 ProRodeo season in 17th with $82,680 won.

Son of Billie and Ken Bray, Paden grew up in the family that runs EquiBrand—the parent company of Classic Ropes, Classic Equine and Martin Saddlery. Naturally, Bray heels with a Powerline.
