Stetzen Stoddard was a rising star in the sport of rodeo. Until an accident in the arena not only ended his career, but almost took his life.

REXBURG, Idaho -

It only takes 8 seconds to qualify a Bareback ride.  To the casual spectator that isn't a large amount of time.  But to the riders, each tenth of a second seems to last forever.  This is especially true for former Professional Cowboy Stetzen Stoddard.  His last competitive ride has lasted 11 years.
