GLENDALE, Ariz. (June 28, 2024) – With the 2024 season of the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Team Series approaching in early July, Arizona’s professional bull riding team, the Ridge Riders, owned by Teton Ridge, have made their way home to the Grand Canyon State for a fan event to kick off their third season. Ahead of the action-packed weekend, the team is thrilled to announce western lifestyle and clothing brand Kimes Ranch as their official apparel partner.

Outfitting the team for the season with button-up shirts for their team uniform, signature Kimes Ranch jeans, travel gear, outerwear and more, Kimes Ranch will play a large roll in the Ridge Riders homestand and festival this fall at Desert Diamond Arena Oct. 4-6.

"We couldn’t think of a better way to step into the world of PBR than by partnering with our hometown team, the Arizona Ridge Riders,” said Lindsay Perraton-Chief Marketing Officer. “Kimes Ranch is looking forward to outfitting and supporting this talented team and becoming a part of such an exciting, high energy division of western sports."

"I can't think of a more perfect pairing than Kimes Ranch and the Arizona Ridge Riders,” said Ridge Riders General Manager Casey Lane. “Kimes is an authentic western clothing brand based right here in Arizona, and their commitment to quality, customer service and the western legacy fits right in with the winning culture of the team as well as Teton Ridge overall."

The Ridge Riders represent one of several elevated Western sports properties that Teton Ridge has assembled under its portfolio with the ultimate goal of elevating the western lifestyle and culture to a global stage.
