Rider Kiesner has traveled around the world and has been featured at the country’s largest rodeos including four times at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada and six times at the “Daddy of ’em All”, Cheyenne Frontier Days.  He performs trick roping. He pairs the wild west skill of roping with art to perform intricate maneuvers with his rope. With his rope, he is able to spin the loop around his body and jump in and out of it. He is so talented that he won the esteemed title of World Champion Trick Roper four times.

Rider is also very well known for his talent with whips. Whip cracking is very dangerous because the sound of the whip cracking is actually the sound barrier breaking going over seven hundred miles per hour. Rider amazes audiences with a flurry of tricks, including removing a small target from his own head. He won the title of World Champion Gun Spinner for his outstanding skills spinning and tossing guns.
