Coming into his fifth year at the Cinch Timed Event Championships at the Lazy E, Marcus Theriot is hot off a win at the Southeastern Circuit Finals in the all-around and heading.
With a long list of all-around titles on his resume, Theriot notes that his greatest wins are winning the team roping with Cody Doescher at Rodeo Austin (Texas) in 2018 and the all-around and the calf roping at the 2016 College National Finals Rodeo.
Theriot grew up watching his father, Herbert Theriot, compete at the Ironman event. He would help his father warm up horses for the long-waited 25 head, and now has his dad sitting in his corner watching him showcase his talents in all five events.
Theriot regularly competes in the calf roping, team roping and steer wrestling. The steer tripping gives him the most challenges, especially since not many ropers trip at the rodeos where he grew up in Mississippi and surrounding states.
Theriot will be steer wrestling on an 11-year-old gelding named Rango, which he transitioned from heading to bull dogging in 2020. He will also haul in his 11-year-old heel horse Gato and is still figuring out plans for which horses he will be riding in the remainder of the events. NFR heeler Shay Carroll will head and heel for him.
Theriot has the support system he needs with his dad, Herbert, mom, Renee, brother Mason, 16, and sister Melayna, 11.
