Commotion, one of the greatest bucking horses of all time, passed away on Sept. 7, 2016 at the Beutler & Son ranch near Elk City, Oklahoma. He was 25. Commotion, a 1,300-pound bay stallion who stood at 16.1 hands, was voted the top bareback horse at his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 1997. He went on to win the next three Bareback Riding Horse of the Year awards, 1998-2000, when he was part of the Beutler and Gaylord Rodeo Company string. He made 10 consecutive trips (1997-2006) to the WNFR before retiring in his prime at the 2006 WNFR at the age of 15. Two rounds were won on him at the WNFR.
