2020 LEWIS FEILD MEMORIAL BAREBACK RIDING SCHOLARSHIP

About:           

This scholarship honors the late ProRodeo Hall of Fame cowboy Lewis Feild. Feild was Utah’s own two-time PRCA World Champion Bareback Rider and three-time All-Around Champion, whose legacy continues to live on in the sport of rodeo and the Beehive State. In 2019, the Days of ’47 Cowboy Games & Rodeo awarded the first rodeo and academic scholarship in honor of Feild.

            This is a $5,000 scholarship awarded to an individual that plans to attend and participate in the bareback riding portion of the rodeo program at a recognized Utah University.
