Stormy Weather became one of the top bucking horses in the PRCA. He was selected for the National Finals Rodeo in bareback riding in 1975, 1976, 1977, and 1978, and in saddle bronc riding in 1982 and 1983. Stormy was voted the PRCA Bareback Horse of the Year in 1975. He was bucked 48 times that year, and only four cowboys managed to ride him to the whistle. In 1976, Stormy Weather carried Chris LeDoux to his first world championship with a second-place score of 78 in the tenth round. The silhouette of this duo during that ride is used on all Chris LeDoux memorabilia. In 1978, Stormy was voted Lone Star Circuit Saddle Bronc of the Year.
