ABOUT CALEB
It takes plenty of dedication and grit to succeed in rodeo, and if Caleb Smidt’s record is any indication he has plenty of both. After being named the Texas high school tie-down roping champion in 2008 and winning reserve champion that same year at the National High School Finals Rodeo, Smidt headed to Wharton County Junior College (WCJC) where he continued to lead the pack. As a member of the 2010 Pioneers Rodeo Team, Smidt was named the all-around champion and the tie-down roping reserve champion at the College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR) in Casper, Wyo. From WCJC, Smidt transferred to Sam Houston State University, where he was a member of the 2011 CNFR Champion Men’s Team and the 2012 CNFR Reserve Champion Men’s Team. His skills in team roping and tie-down roping were nearly unmatched, with Smidt winning rodeos all over Texas. In 2013, Smidt made his first National Finals Rodeo where he finished the year 10th in the world standings. Since then, Smidt has continued to dominate the rodeo circuit, winning events across the nation. In 2015, he won his first world championship at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He repeated that achievement in 2018 and has consistently ranked in the top 10 in the world standings as well. As of December 2021, Smidt recently won his 3rd World Championship title in Las Vegas at the NFR along with winning the average title, the best on 10 head of cattle. Smidt and his wife, Brenna, have three children (Cru, 5, and Myla, 3 and Chaz, 9 weeks) and call Bellville, Texas, home. Smidt lives his life with a clear goal. “My objective is to compete competitively in roping events while striving for excellence and Godly character in and out of the arena,” he said.
