RIGBY — A decade since Todd Pierce performed in front of an eastern Idaho crowd, the champion bareback rider returned to his roots Sunday with his Born Wild event.

Pierce was raised in Idaho Falls but currently lives in Shelley. Born Wild is a ministry opportunity Pierce said he never saw coming. During Born Wild, Pierce takes an unbroken horse in front of a crowd and saddles it within the hour. As he works face to face with the wild animal, Pierce ministers to a crowd of strangers about his faith.
