Canadian Permit Ward winner and CPRA Rookie of the Year, 2011 

Personal
5-8, 160 … Single … Father, Curtis, was a tie-down roper in addition to riding broncs, which may go a long way toward explaining why he named his son Ty Fast Taypotat … The Taypotat family is Native North American – part of the Cree Nation. His grandfather, Louis, is the longstanding chief of the Kahkewistahaw First Nation and a founder of the Prairie Indian Rodeo Association; Louis also competed in rodeo … Ty started in rodeo by riding sheep at age 3 and his father had him on a spurring board a few years later … Graduated from Cochrane (Alberta) High School … Ty’s career has been slowed by a series of injuries, including a bruised heart, collapsed lung, broken ankle, three broken ribs, broken hand, hyper-extended knees, a tear in one of his kidneys and several concussions … He was very fortunate to have survived a horrific wreck in Alberta in 2012 in which his truck rolled over twice and he was knocked unconscious
