Colby Cantu is a 20 year old bull rider from Childress, TX. Colby grew up with a rodeo background. “My dad used to ride bulls when he was in high school in Oklahoma and my grandpa rode saddle bronc. My dad also team roped, but all I could think about was riding bulls.” Colby says that he was born with different hands and a short body. This did not stop Colby from living out his dream of being a bull rider. He states, “I had a dream about bull riding world champions. I rode my first bull when I was 17 in Childress, TX at Old Settlers Rodeo and I won my first PBR buckle this May at a PBR Touring Pro in Stephenville, TX.”

My biggest dream and challenge is to ride at NFR and be a world champion bull rider.”

Colby’s favorite movie is 8 Seconds. He is a big fan of Lane Frost and wants to be just like him. I’m sure that Lane Frost would have been a big fan of Colby Cantu as well.

Good luck at NFR Colby! SAY I WON’T!
