Popular rodeo clown and barrelman Flint Rasmussen suffered a mild heart attack Wednesday morning at his home in Choteau, Mont.

He was airlifted to a hospital in Great Falls, Mont., where it was determined he had blockage in two main arteries but no permanent damage to the heart, according to a Professional Bull Riders spokesman.

Rasmussen, 39, is resting comfortably in the Intensive Care Unit.

He has been a fixture on the PBR’s Built Ford Tough Series for nine years, was selected eight times as the top barrelman and worked the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.
