Zach Arthur Hardin, TX

Zach Arthur

My name is Zach Arthur, I grew up in Hardin, Texas. I started my college career at Texas A&M then transferred and finished a graduate from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Ag Business (ranch management). I’ve been fighting bulls for around 5 years now. I know that I have been blessed with these opportunities and the ability to do the things I love. I’ve been taught and followed after some of the greats like Miles Hare and Rob Smets. I have been able to fight all over the country from Florida to Montana and everywhere in between. Along with cowboy protection I’ve been able to fight in some of the biggest freestyles and have won several of them. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today and have gotten to do the things I’ve done without the help from my Lord and Savior Jesus.

Judd Napier Waipahu, Hawaii

Judd Napier

My name is Judd Napier. I am originally from Waipahu, HI, located on the island of Oahu. Over the last four years, my career in professional rodeo has allowed me to move from the Hawaiian islands to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in order to further myself in my profession. In 2005 I attended college in Dodge City, KS on a rodeo scholarship. There I met Wacey Munsell who later became my inspiration for fighting. After college I moved back home to Hawaii where I was able to hone my skills fighting for Bud Gibson of Rocker G Livestock. I would also travel from island to island fighting at various rodeos across the state. After spending five years in Hawaii, I moved to Colorado in September of 2012 to pursue my passion for fighting bulls. I was approved for my PRCA permit in the Spring of 2013. Later that year I was one of two bullfighters awarded a buckle for cowboy protection at the WNFR Bucking Stock Sale. Throughout my career I aim to inspire others to pursue their passions no matter how impossible they may seem. Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”
