Update: Injured Kaycee Feild released from hospital

by TRACY RENCK | Apr 01, 2019

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Four-time PRCA World Champion Bareback Rider Kaycee Feild is on the road to recovery after getting injured March 30 in the finals at Rodeo Austin (Texas).

Feild, who won four consecutive world titles from 2011-14, had an 87-point ride on Beutler & Son Rodeo’s Nutrena’s Killer Bee but was injured moments after the whistle.

Feild, 32, was treated at Dell Seton Medical Center in Austin and was released from the hospital April 2. Feild’s older brother, Shad, drove Kaycee home and they arrived in Genola on Wednesday.

“Rest is so important for him, he needs to get a lot of rest and take it easy,” Kaycee's wife, Stephanie, said. “Our community has been so wonderful. They came in and completely cleaned our house and cleaned out our fridge and stocked it with new food and smoothie stuff for him and soups. They have been so amazing.”

Stephanie described what happened on her Instagram story on April 1.

“After the whistle, Kaycee got sat forward and smacked his face on his riggin knocking him unconscious," she wrote. "When he hit the dirt the horse then kicked him on top of his head. He is now in ICU with a small brain bleed, a fractured skull, fractured nasal and jaw and concussion. The fractures are small enough surgery is not necessary… along with the bleeding, it’s not spreading at this point, so surgery is also not necessary. With lots of rest we will be heading home to Utah in no time.”

Stephanie elaborated on Kaycee's condition in an interview with ProRodeo Sports News April 1.

"He said what happened is the horse kind of got away from him, and he went to sit up and when he sat up it jerked him forward, and the last thing he remembered is he whacked his face and that's what caused the fracture in his jaw. It knocked him out, and when hit the ground he got kicked by the horse in the head."

Feild placed second at Rodeo Austin and earned $7,050. Feild is having one of the best seasons of his star-studded career. As of April 1, he was leading the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $111,853.

Feild gave his season earnings a massive jolt by earning a combined $95,167 toward the world standings during the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, The American, and RodeoHouston, the most of any contestant in any event at those three rodeos.

"Kaycee said that everything happens for a reason, and there's a reason he needs to be home," Stephanie said. "He knows he needs to take things slow for a while."

Kaycee and Stephanie have three children, daughter Chaimberlyn, who turns 6 on April 2, son Huxyn, 3, and daughter Remi, 6 months.

A year ago, Field finished seventh in the world standings with $231,445. He finished fourth in the aggregate at the 2018 Wrangler NFR, earning $120,423 over the 10 days in Las Vegas. He is a nine-time qualifier for the Wrangler NFR (2008-15, 2018).
