Ethan Crouch is a founding member of the newly formed Texas Bronc Riders Association. A Texas High School Rodeo Association competitor and champion, Ethan has competed in saddle bronc, bareback, and occasionally enters in the steer wrestling.
Crouch, who is no stranger to both ends of the arena, has competed for over 9 years and owes his start in rodeo to his father. Crouch finished the 2015 season as the CPRA reserve bareback champion and is off to a strong start in 2016 with the lead in the bareback standings for the TBRA, 3rd in the UPRA standings, 6th in the CPRA, and has earned a spot in The American Semifinals to be held in Fort Worth February 17-21, 2016. Ethan was also the January 2016 TBRA Cowtown Challenge Bareback Champion at the Stockyards Championship Rodeo, January 22-23, walking away with $1,000 bonus. When asked what his biggest accomplishment to date is, it is no doubt making The American Semifinals. Ethan finds that setting goals daily is helping him move towards the ultimate achievement in rodeo and that is winning rookie of the year and world champion. Ethan’s determination is only equal to his sense of humor. “In ten years, I see myself probably in a wheel chair.”
Ethan, 24, makes his home in Smiley, Texas.
