DANIEL GREEN, Oakdale, Calif.
When Daniel Green backs his horse into the box inside this arena, you can expect magic.
The California cowboy is a two-time winner of the Timed Event Championship. In addition to his Timed Event success, Green owns two titles from the World’s Greatest Roper, Virtually every time he leaves the Lazy E Arena, it is with a fat check.
Last spring, Green scored the fastest round, posting a 54.0 in the fourth go-round, securing $10,000 in the process. In addition, he added another $10,000 by placing fourth in the average.
In all, the 40-year-old all-around hand knows what it means to be among the elite in the sport. He qualified 10 times for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and has earned 12 trips to the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo – of those, six have come since he quit rodeoing full time in 2004.
Even though he hasn’t played at the NFR in nearly a decade, Green remains one of the top attractions in the sport. He proves it every March inside these walls.
