Selby, 25, is a former National High School Finals Rodeo champion from Pinedale. He suffered severe spinal injuries in a single-car accident recently and is paralyzed from the sternum down.
Selby underwent five hours of surgery at the Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, Colorado, during which doctors inserted two 10-inch titanium rods on either side of his spine. They also fused the T-5 and T-6 vertebrae and the T-12 with the L-1.
Clayton moved to the Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colorado on June 27, 2011 to start rehabilitation.
Selby won the NHSFR saddle bronc riding title in 2004, after finishing as runner-up the year before. After a year of competing for Sheridan (Wyo.) College, Selby bought his PRCA card in 2006.
Clayton's family: Phil, Danielle, Taylor, Nicole, and Phil Jr., wish to thank everyone all for their kindness and generosity.
His friends at the Springville Rodeo have set up a fund to help with medical expenses. Contributions can be sent in Selby's name to
