What is your most memorable ride at the 2009 INFR?
I don’t really have a most memorable ride because I don’t feel I really drew that well at the finals, but the feeling after winning the world title was the best.”

My dad, Howard Hunter and my uncles.”

What are the benefits of INFR rodeos for you?
