Lane Frost is a name that every rodeo fan knows and admires. He was a world champion bull rider who died tragically at the age of 25 after being gored by a bull. His life and legacy have inspired many young cowboys to pursue their dreams of riding bulls, including his second cousin Josh Frost.
Josh Frost is a professional bull rider who has been following in Lane’s footsteps since he was a kid. He grew up watching Lane’s videos and learning from his techniques. He also inherited the rodeo gene from his father Shane, who was a bull rider, and his grandfather Joe and great-uncle Clyde, who were saddle bronc riders.
Josh and his older brother Joe have been competing in rodeos since they were little. They started riding calves when they were five and eight years old, respectively, and moved on to bigger bulls as they grew older. They have both qualified for the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) multiple times and have won several rodeos across the country.
Josh has also participated in rodeos in Canada for the first time this year. He is currently ranked 18th in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) world standings with $47,956.24 in earnings. He is aiming to qualify for his first NFR this year.
Josh is proud to carry on the Frost family legacy and to honor Lane’s memory. He says that Lane was a big idol to him and his brother, even though they never got to meet him. He also says that Lane was more than just a great bull rider; he was a great person who inspired many people with his kindness, faith, and courage.
Josh hopes to emulate Lane’s success and character in his own career. He says that he wants to be the best bull rider he can be, but also the best person he can be. He says that he tries to live by Lane’s motto: “Don’t be afraid to go after what you want to do, and what you want to be. But don’t be afraid to be willing to pay the price.”
