Pederson was chosen Rookie of the Year when he began his pro rodeo career in 1982, and also was the CFR Canadian Steer Wrestling Champion that year, the first rookie to do so in that event.

Pederson won four Canadian titles, two Canadian high point championships, the Calgary Stampede $50,000 in 1988 and 1991, and twice was the NFR steer wrestling average winner.
In 1994 he won the World Steer Wrestling Championship at the NFR in Las Vegas.
Other honours include the Calgary Stampedes Guy Weadick award in 1988 and becoming the CPRAs Cowboy of the Year in 1998.
