Ben Jones PBR Membership Withdrawn

As many bull riding fans caught the news Monday in a PBR ( Professional Bull Riders) statement that reads "following several incidents of conduct detrimental to the sport and a violation of probationary terms, Ben Jones’ PBR membership has been withdrawn as of today. He will no longer be competing in PBR-sanctioned events". Having heard rumor to this we reached out to PBR's media team to get conformation on the circulating rumors. As many of you know in today's social media world speculation and rumors can get out of control very quickly. A few rodeo facebook groups were quick to fill up the comments sections with all kinds of off the wall comments regarding the press release with many jumping to conclusions, and some offering support.
As for my "conversation" with the PBR this morning there is nothing more I can release publicly at this time, as it is summed up in the  press release. With that said it's time to gear up for the PBR World Fin…

Watching a Legacy Continue ~ Ronny Kitchens

Many of us often think about what it will be like to to watch our children follow in our foot steps. It is not an uncommon thing to see the youth of today strive to become the same thing that their parents already are. Now imagine being a world class bull rider and seeing your child strive to be the same thing. We all know that the sport of bull riding is full of danger and chance, so just imagine having competed in the sport for a life time to only turn around and see your child strive to be just like you.
Ronny Kitchens has made a lifetime out of spurring bulls and making money. In many people views he rates up there with the best in the world. Recently while at what will be one of his final performances of his amazing career he strapped on his spurs at Bucking Hunger in Cleburne TX. Ronny nodded his head and put on the good old cowboy try just a few outs before his son followed right behind him. When we caught up with Ronny after the performance we could not help bu…

Barrels 4 Boobies Benefit Barrel Race (Big Hearts for a Big Cause)

As the rodeo world know this weekend a world champion put together the numbers to win an event in bull riding. 
What many may not know is in the little town of Mt. Vernon Missouri something else huge happened in the competitive rodeo world. Barrels 4 Boobies may not be front page news on all the big rodeo publications but its value was just as big as any other event.
On Sunday October 9th barrel racers from all over converged on Longhorn Arena for a one day barrel race, this race raised money for their local breast cancer treatment organization. over 170 open barrel racers along with a good number of youth and peewee jockies may not sound like a big amount but the fact is watching the competition you would have thought there was a couple million dollars on the line.

One of the reasons we want to take a moment and feature this event was not only that The Pepper Stewart Show was lucky enough to have a team on location but also the spirit that goes into all of these great sm…

Some Familiar Names Back on the PBR Scene

New Faces Making a Race to the End By: Phillip Kitts Pepper Stewart Show Staff Writer 
Well PBR Eugene has come and gone and as much as it seemed to be a routine event some big things happened during the weekend.
Starting off with a familiar face finding his place back on top. Silvano Alves may have found his rhythm again which could be bad news for the other competitors in the Built Ford Tough Series. Silvano knows how to win on the big stage. He has a championships on his resume and after last year even has round wins notched at World Finals. It not set in stone that he is on track but a win at a big event like Eugene could be proof that he is on his way.
Some other profound things came to light this weekend. Jess Lockwood continue to make his mark in the Bull Riding world, he has not yet notched his second win but with another big weekend he managed to put him self in even stronger position as World Finals come closer. Right now Jess sits 5th in the world and seems to be…
