Quarter Horse Magazine & Rocky Mountain Horse Expo

Champion WRCA Ranch Rodeo Team Members Injured in Crash
Written by QHNStaff
Brothers Trey and Tyler Thompson of the Thompson Ranch (recent competitors at the Denver Championship WRCA Ranch Rodeo) were gravely injured May 18 in a collision with an 18-wheeler.
Their friend, Keith Cypert, a junior at Munday (Texas) high school, was also injured, but has been treated and released from the hospital; he is credited with saving both Thompsons’ lives by pulling them from the burning wreckage. Both Thompson brothers have undergone extensive surgeries since the accident, with more planned in the future to complete skin grafts and bone repairs. The Rocky Mountain Horse Expo extends heartfelt sympathy to Trey, Tyler and Keith.

To assist the Thompsons and Keith with medical and living expenses during their recoveries, the four WRCA Ranch Rodeos in Colorado are sponsoring a benefit auction at the annual WRCA “Ride for the Brand” Ranch Rodeo in Colorado Springs. The auction will take place at the pre-rodeo VIP dinner on July 4; the sponsoring WRCA ranch rodeos are the Colorado (Hugo), Denver, and Vail/Eagle Valley Championships, plus the “Ride for the Brand Rodeo.”

The Rocky Mountain Horse Expo will manage the auction contributions and has set up a special account through the RMHE Web site to accommodate auction item donations as well as ongoing monetary contributions. For more information and to contribute, contact thomsponranchdonations(AT) or call 303- 292-4981. To follow Trey and Tyler’s recovery progress, visit
