Road to Recovery
Braxten told himself he was not going to let his accident consume him or deflect his efforts to reach his goals. He was determined to maintain a positive mindset and work hard to get back to living a normal life.
That is exactly what Braxten did.
He learned of the tremendous support he had from so many people in his community, especally his rodeo fans all around the country.
His recovery, tied with his ambition has inspired people to have a different outlook on life and a sense of gratitude.
"Some days it's hard... I see my traveling partners rodeoing and I wish I could get on a bucking horse, but I keep pushing through and everyday I get stronger and stronger."
