Many a cowboy relied on the solid riding of Paul Bruegman, who was a three-time pickup man at the National Finals Rodeo. Paul owned the Bruegman Rodeo Company with his father George.
He began working in the arena at Cheyenne Frontier Days as a pick up man from 1961 to 1987 and raced chuck wagons from the time he was 14 years old. His family held the parade contract for 54 years for CFD.
Paul also was a pickup man for the College NFR for 15 years, and was a PRCA contestant in both team roping and steer tripping.
