Two time World Champion bull rider 'Slick' Phelps

 


THUNDER VALLEY –Oglala Sioux Tribal member Jordan “Slick” Phelps has been viewing the world from the topside of bull since he was 4 years old.

Now at 19, that experience has transformed him into becoming a two time World Champion Bull Rider.

“I grew up on a ranch raising cows. One day my dad put me on a calf and I was addicted,” Phelps said from his home in Thunder Valley on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwestern South Dakota. “I kept getting on after that. I knew I wanted to be a bull rider when I was little and I’ve been chasing my dreams ever since. It’s working out so far.”
