Clint Cannon hasn’t been riding horses long. He was a football college star who was going to go pro until he had a accident. So, he was getting out of college and decided he need something else to do. His dad had been in rodeo for quite awhile but never did realize all the winnings he wanted, although he was at it for 20 years. He is a PRCA Gold card member.
