Texas bareback rider Tilden Hooper is back at the top of the game he's been playing a long time. He won the afternoon performance at Cheyenne on Tuesday when a horse called 'Hard Times' owned by Rocky Mountain Rodeo Co. based in Jay Em, Wyoming proved to be the perfect fit. His 88 points were the best of the day and the Shreveport, Louisiana native is looking for his 6th trip to the National Finals in Las Vegas. His last appearance at the NFR? Just last season!
