Chris Yzaguirre: The Man, The Myth, The Legend
Rebecca Creek Distillery is downright proud to sponsor Chris Yzaguirre, San Antonio’s very own pro bull riding legend. Chris, aka Izzy or Chris Izzy in the rodeo world, is a seasoned veteran in the sport and has been riding bulls for over 22 years. A proud veteran of the United States Air Force where he was a crew chief for 6 years on a KC 135 tanker, Chris now spends his time as an Aviation Mechanic in San Antonio as well as putting on shows sitting atop the roughest and meanest bulls in the sport.
Our main man is a proud member of the WSPBR (World Senior Pro Bull Riding) and if you ever catch him you’ll know that he earned his spot. Not too familiar with the WSPBR? It’s a bull riding organization made up of older bull riders from all over Texas and the south that put on shows and compete for prize money and points that count towards the end of year finals. But don’t let the age thing shake you up, these guys are as tough as they come. Go check out one of their shows sometimes and you’ll see just what we mean.
And how does our favorite bull rider spend his free time? You guessed it. Kickin’ back are heading to the bars with a glass of Rebecca Creek Fine Texas Whiskey in hand. Find out what’s so special about Izzy’s favorite drink by clicking the button below!
