Cody Coughlin has long been a lover of horses, rodeos and the entire culture.  This weekend he gets to prove that at the RIDE TV headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas.  Coughlin will be taking part in many different activities that will all culminate at the rodeo at the Fort Worth Stockyards.


Coughlin will have the privilege of meeting the Mayor of Forth Worth, Betsy Price, and will also get to show off his skills behind the wheel as he takes on Mayor Price in a go-kart challenge.


The 21-year-old Ohio native will also get to show off his skills with a rope as he learns some “rope tricks” at the Stockyards on Friday evening.


Also on tap, Coughlin has accepted the challenge of going eight seconds on the mechanical bull on Friday, something that even the most hardened rodeo fans have difficulty with.


The two-day event for Coughlin begins on Thursday and will end on Friday evening at the rodeo.  From there, Coughlin will fly back to his home-state of Ohio for Saturday’s ARCA/CRA Super Series 100-lap Super Late Model race at Toledo Speedway.
