Tristan Martin’s baby boy has been his lucky charm from the day he was born. This past weekend, Martin’s wife, Josee, and five-month-old, Boudreaux, accompanied him to Guymon, Oklahoma for the Guymon Pioneer Days rodeo. With lucky charm in tow, it was no surprise that Sulphur, Louisiana steer wrestler took home the title.
“It has always been on my bucket list to win,” says Martin, “I’m glad to be taking the belt home with me this year and super thankful for this sport and to be able to enjoy it with my family.” Martin not only won the average on a horse borrowed from fellow steer wrestler Cade Staton, but consistently made runs under four seconds to place in all three rounds.
Martin has maintained a strong presence at the top of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association standings in 2022. Coming off of his first National Finals Rodeo in December, he won the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo to propel him to first in the world standings. Months later, he’s still solidly within the top fifteen – the cowboys who qualify for the National Finals Rodeo – at third place with $54,923.32 in winnings to date. Martin finished the 2021 season fifth in the world with earnings of $172,827. Boudreaux patiently waited until after his dad was done competing in Las Vegas to make his arrival and this year Martin hopes to celebrate his son’s first birthday by bringing home a gold buckle. We’d say the Kimes Ranch cowboy is well on his way to writing his name in the rodeo history books.
About Kimes Ranch
Founded in 2009, Kimes Ranch was created to fill a void in the marketplace. With a multi-generational Western history, Matt and Amanda Kimes’ desire was to create a company that produced great fitting, quality, long lasting jeans that walk the line between fashion-forward and Western friendly. The brand's catchy logo and even more attractive company culture and customer service have brought them a loyal following amongst their Western consumers. The classically inspired line of jeans has been featured in magazines including American Cowboy, Horse & Rider, Cowboys and Indians and Chrome Magazine. Staying true to its western roots, the jeans have been showcased on television shows such as Heartland, an Alberta based television show that has been running for 14 years and the hit Emmy nominated television series, Yellowstone, created and directed by Taylor Sheridan.
