Bareback rider R.C. Landingham’s NFR Round 5 win has special meaning

Competing during Round 5 Tough Enough to Wear Pink Night at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Teton Ridge had special meaning to bareback rider R.C. Landingham.

“It is pretty emotional,” said Landingham, 32. “My mom, Wendy Skiver, passed away of ovarian cancer (Feb. 3, 2017). This is her rodeo dream, and she is living it with me.”

Landingham’s mom would have been proud of her son’s performance on Monday night.

Landingham had a 90.5-point ride on Pickett Pro Rodeo’s Top Notch for the win.

“I had been on that horse twice before once before here at the NFR and it didn’t go well because I was battling a shoulder injury,” Landingham said. “Then I had him again in Pecos (Texas) this year and was 87 on him. Tonight, that horse was everything I thought it would be. That’s a big strong horse and he had a great trip, and everything worked out. It is nice to get a round win like this because it pays so well.”

Landingham earned $28,914 for the victory and has earned $57,723 at the NFR. Landingham is third in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $188,247.
