PRCA For The Record: San Juan Capistrano

For what it lacks in history, it makes up for with fast times and high scores. The Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., is one of the few major PRCA rodeos that got its start in the 21st century. 

Bareback rider Tilden Hooper broke the longest-standing record at the Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo with his 90.5-point ride on C5 Rodeo's Virgil in 2018. The previous record was set by four-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier Tom McFarland (2003-04, 2006-07) in 2007 with an 89-point ride on Cervi Championship Rodeo’s Thrill Ride. 

In addition to placing his name in the San Juan Capistrano record book, Hooper earned $7,480 en route to his fifth trip to the Wrangler NFR, where he ended the season ranked third in the PRCA | RAM World Standings. 

Hooper, 31, competed at the Wrangler NFR in 2008-09, 2011, 2014 and 2018 and is still going strong. So far this season, the Louisiana cowboy has won the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo in Kissimmee, Fla., the RAM Texas Circuit Finals Rodeo in Waco and the Sisters (Ore.) Rodeo. As of Aug. 19, he was ranked fifth in the world standings.

Since 2001, many of the biggest names in the PRCA have competed at San Juan Capistrano but only the best left their mark by setting a rodeo record. Cowboys will have a chance to win their share of the prize money and possibly set a record Aug. 24-25.
