Hometown Halverson lays it on the line at the PBR Finals

Conner Halverson has not been one to shy away from telling you what his dreams are; be a professional bull rider.

And over the past 18 months, Halverson has made all the right moves in and out of the arena to make his dreams come true.

The culmination of his 2021 campaign was illuminated by the bright lights of Las Vegas, Nevada this past week as Halverson competed in the PBR Finals: Unleash the Beast.

Halverson finished the regular season in 35th place in the points standings, giving him a automatic spot in the Finals.

Cowboys got 6 total rides in the competition, with the highest total of scores deciding the top spot.

And is sometimes is the case in the world of bull riding, the 1,800 pound bulls threw Halverson a curve ball. 

The Gordon native rode a total of six times but did not register a qualifying ride. Even though that was not the outcome he had hoped for, it did not dampen the overall experience for Halverson.

“The PBR Finals was an awesome experience with sold out crowds and the best bulls in the world,” said Halverson.

“It really made it unforgettable,” he added.

Halverson is hoping to utilize the momentum from his 2021 rookie season to continue to make his dreams come true.

“My plan moving forward is to keep working hard and putting in the work to make the Finals in 2022,” added Halverson.

Halverson finished with a total of 224 points in the 2021 season. He had 26 successful rides in his season, with a 22% ride percentage. Halverson also earned $40,000 in his rookie season.

Needless to say, this is not the last time that this cowboy will have the bright lights shining down on him. He will be back and Sheridan County will have his back win or lose.
