Meet Cody

With a name made for a cowboy, Cody Traylor comes to the competition representing the polished buckaroos. Growing up on a Mississippi hay farm, Cody developed a passion for horses that continues today. A former United States Air Force mechanic, he found his way back to the cowboy way of life after a diabetes diagnosis brought his military career to a halt. Today, Cody lives in Washington state, where he trains horses and pursues a career in music, hoping one day to follow in his family’s footsteps and run his own ranch.
