Throwback Thursday: Greenough wins 1993 bareback riding world championship


Some cowboys seem destined for greatness. Cowboys like Deb Greenough.

Greenough was born into the family of the “Riding Greenoughs” and named after world champion Deb Copenhaver.

Greenough’s grandfather, Bill; great uncle, Turk, a legendary saddle bronc rider; along with sisters Alice and Mary Greenough, formed the Riding Greenoughs that barnstormed the country during the 1930s demonstrating how bronc riding was supposed to be done.

Despite his deep rodeo roots, Greenough didn’t live on his name. He earned the respect of fellow cowboys and his success through try.

By 1988, Greenough set in motion a brilliant bareback riding career. He qualified for the National Finals Rodeo 13 consecutive years (1988-2000).

Greenough will be inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame with the 2018 class at 10 a.m., (MT), Aug. 4 in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Greenough reached the pinnacle of success in 1993 with a world championship. He finished the season with a then-bareback riding season record of $128,740.

Greenough’s NFR was highlighted by winning Rounds 9 and 10 outright and splitting the Round 2 victory with Chuck Logue and Bill Boyd. He placed in five rounds.

The victory in Round 10 was clutch. He cemented the world championship with an 80-point ride on Copenhagen Fletch of the Beutler Bros. and Cervi Rodeo Company.
