From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. he will be at the Cherokee Casino Grove, and from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. he will be at WRD.

A Hulbert native, Dirteater has been living and breathing the rodeo scene since he was born, quickly fell in love with the sport, a CN Communications release states.

Despite the setbacks, Dirteater went on to the 2016 Built Ford Tough Series World Finals. He successfully rode all six bulls for more than eight seconds each in this event, a perfect performance, the release states.

Dirteater hosts “Ryan Dirteater’s Ropin’ for Wishes,” a charitable event that raises funds for the Tulsa Area Make-A Wish Foundation and Rider Relief Fund, according to the release.
