Name: Kanin Asay Age: 25 Hometown: Powell, Wyoming Event: Bull Riding
I started riding bulls professionally in 2004.
My first trip to Houston was 2007 and I've been here every year since. Last year was probably my best year. I ended up finishing third and won about $17,000. I look forward to this year and want to make it my best.

My favorite part about rodeoing is the opportunity to meet people. I'm part of the Extreme Life Ministries. The Lord has called us all to preach and we each have our own podium to preach from, so mine has been bull riding.
When I'm not rodeoing, I'm being a dad. [He holds Kasen Shane, his five-month-old, first-born son.] My wife and I had our first ultrasound here in Houston last year during the rodeo.
In my free time, my wife and I raise bucking bulls. We spend a lot of time on the ranch and I like to go hunting, fishing and play golf. Just doing relaxing type stuff and spending time with the family.
