Posted by Nicole
During the New Frontier Bull Ride Saturday night, Beaver Scott, long time bullfighter, announced his retirement from active bull fighting. Beaver of Presho, is the father of two children, LaKeeshia and Lane.
Beaver has been involved with the sport of rodeo as a participant or clown for over 26 years. Hes worked the South Dakota 4-H Finals the last 10 years. Helping young kids is his passion, whether its working with his own two children or the Make-A-Wish kids through the South Dakota Rodeo Association.

The Make-A-Wish families in South Dakota are treated each year by the Northern Bull Riding Tour to an all-expense paid weekend at the Finals. The Make-A-Wish kids expect Beaver to be there and know that hell spend time with each of them.

Beaver is retiring from the arena, but it will never really be retirement, as he will continue to work with rodeo youth, sharpening their skills to avoid injury. He has always loved the rodeo, but he also loves helping kids.
