We’re proud to introduce a new addition to the Purple Cowboy family – Pro Rodeo Cowboy Trevor Knowles! He’s joining our team as a Purple Cowboy Endorsee on the Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association Circuit this year.
All year long, he’ll be sharing his experiences and stories from the rodeo trail with us. We’ll be sharing his stories from the road here on our blog and over on our Facebook Page. Make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter so you don’t miss a word!
Originally from Baker City, Oregon, Trevor has been a PRCA competitor since 2001. His main events are steer wrestling and tie-down roping with his total PRCA career earnings topping more than $1.25 million! This cowboy has rodeo in his blood; his uncle is Butch Knowles, an NFR saddle bronc riding champion. His cousin, Blake Knowles is also a PRCA steer wrestler.
He’s qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo ten times since 2004 and currently holds a 6th place world standing in his events. At the 2013 WNFR, he won Round 1 with a time of 3.1 seconds and placed in three other rounds.
He’s got a couple of superstitions when it comes to competing, including “don’t eat chicken” and “don’t shave on game day.”
When he’s not riding, this single cowboy is an avid hunter and fisherman and he’s got a knack for music. If you’re lucky, you may see him singing and playing his guitar – we have heard that he played at one of the WNFR Buckle Presentations and he is a regular singing cowboy at the Purple Cowboy Campfire during the California Rodeo in Salinas in July every year.
Join us in welcoming Trevor to our Purple Cowboy family and look out for his updates from the road all throughout the year!
