Brady Minor’s Personal and Professional 2020 Roller Coaster Ride

The curveballs that have come with 2020 and all the COVID-19-related hardships on this country have hit cowboys and the cowboy sport hard. Brothers Riley and Brady Minor will this year miss their first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in recent memory. But the family-first mentality at the core of Team Minor has them counting their many blessings, starting with the recent and upcoming birth of baby girls for both brothers. Big brother Brady and his wife, Ashley, have been tested hard with the premature birth of baby Mesa Jeanne on August 15. After Riley and Brady won Round 1 in 4.3 seconds at the Gold Buckle Beer ProRodeo Tour Finale in Rapid City last night, today’s the big day Mesa and Ashley finally get to leave the newborn intensive care unit at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle and head home to Ellensburg.
