Quinten Hayden, 2018 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo (CWWR) All Around Champion and Champion Bull Rider as we previously reported was injured in a rollover car accident in February and remains wheelchair bound. Quinten has not let this slow him down and has vowed to remain strong. Quinten has become a hero of ours for his courage and positive attitude. He attended the CWWR for a majority of the season and could be seen behind the bucking chutes offering encouragement and advice to the bull riders. Quinten and wife Amanda could also be seen in the arena during the mutton bustin' cheering on their son Myson and daughter Zoey. Quinten was present in the arena to offer his congratulations to Matt Nieslanik this year's winner of the All Around Saddle at CWWR.
If you see Quinten around at one of the rodeos please tell him how much we all appreciate the example he is setting on remaining positive and uplifting and encouraging others even while his struggles remain. I'm sure the family would appreciate your continued support through prayers. Quinten we will always have your back. Thanks for reminding us that through even difficult times one can remain a friend and encourager of others and not let their circumstances drag them down. Quinten you are amazing and we admire you so much!!
