PRCA Stat of the Week

The PRCA has four rodeos taking place between July 17-24 that have a total payout of nearly $1.5 million. Three of those are Wrangler ProRodeo Tour events – Nampa, Idaho; Salinas, Calif.; and Spanish Fork, Utah. The fourth is the K Days Rodeo in Edmonton, Alberta, which paid out nearly half a million dollars in its inaugural year in 2017.

  1. Kastner snares Sheridan title

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Cowboy Christmas essentially left a lump of coal in Trevor Kastner’s stocking.

The veteran bull rider won a small check at the Greeley (Colo.) Stampede and nothing else.

“Cowboy Christmas was terrible for me, that eight-second rule got me,” Kastner said with a chuckle.

Fortunately for Kastner, he didn’t let his immediate past impact his present.

The Roff, Okla., cowboy won the Sheridan WYO Rodeo with an 89-point ride on Sankey Pro Rodeo & Robinson Bulls’ Captain Moonlight.

“I had never seen that bull before, but I talked to a few buddies and they gave me an idea of what he was going to be,” said Kastner, 30. “I didn’t know if he was going to be quite that good. He did what they said, but maybe he was a little better this trip. He was a good, solid bull. He was in the gate to the right and I was happy to stay on, and it turned out well for me.”

Kastner made his ride in Sheridan on July 12 and then had to wait to see if it would hold when the rodeo ended July 14. It did, and he earned $4,568 for his performance.

“It’s great to win Sheridan,” Kastner said. “Hopefully, this will help me get on a roll and start doing good again. Anytime you’re in a slump and get one rode and are a decent amount of points it boosts your confidence back up.”

Kastner was sixth in the July 9 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $64,794, and he moved up to fourth in the July 16 standings with $69,637.

Kastner, a three-time qualifier for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (2011-13), has a solid spot in the standings, thanks to a solid winter, highlighted by winning the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show in Fort Worth, Texas, Feb. 3, with a score of 251.5 points in the three-head average. Kastner left Fort Worth after earning $12,655.

This spring and summer, Kastner’s roll has slowed due to injuries. He missed two months after being injured during a ride March 15 at Rodeo Austin (Texas).

Kastner broke six ribs and suffered a Grade 2 laceration of the liver and a concussion when he was bucked off Beutler & Son Rodeo’s Tombstone.

“I came back (the first week of June) and at Weatherford, Texas, I broke two more ribs when a horn caught me,” Kastner said. “I came back from Weatherford for the Fourth of July run. (Injuries) are just part of the game. I know there are going to be low times, but high times will follow. The plan is to get to the NFR and go out there and do some good.”

Kastner is going to take a few days off to spend time with his family. He and his wife, Kate, had a baby girl, McKenna Mae, Feb. 14.

“I will be back out there July 19 in Ogden, Utah, but I’m looking forward to going to see my family and refresh a little bit,” Kastner said.

Other winners at the $267,470 rodeo were all-around cowboy Trevor Brazile ($12,648, tie-down roping, team roping and steer roping); bareback riders Wyatt Denny (88 points on Sankey Pro Rodeo & Robinson Bulls’ Sozo) and Clayton Biglow (88 points on Dakota Rodeo’s War Rock); steer wrestlers Jesse Brown and Blake Mindemann (8.8 seconds on two head each); team ropers Cody Tew/Nano Garza and Joshua Torres/Jonathan Torres (10.7 seconds on two head each); saddle bronc rider Cody DeMoss (85.5 points on Sankey Pro Rodeo & Robinson Bulls’ Black Box); tie-down roper Brazile (16.6 seconds on two head); barrel racer Katie Pascoe (17.16 seconds) and steer ropers J. Tom Fisher and Trevor Brazile (52.9 seconds on four head each).

Brazile’s all-around money total broke the previous all-around Sheridan record amount of $9,962, which he set in 2015.

  1. Dane Kissack dedicates win at Casper to Cade Swor

CASPER, Wyo. – Dane Kissack just notched the biggest win of his rodeo career.

And he immediately dedicated it to fellow tie-down roper Cade Swor, who earlier this week suffered a broken arm.

Kissack had to battle his own injuries over the last year. As he showed on July 14, he’s healed and feeling good, especially after winning the Central Wyoming Fair & PRCA Rodeo in Casper, Wyo.

Kissack took home $6,651 after tying for sixth in the first round, winning in the finals and taking first in the average with 17.7 seconds on two head.

“This is the biggest win of my career,” Kissack said.

Kissack placed in the first round on his horse Rango, 10. He won the short round on his horse Lizzie, 11. Swor played a key role with both horses.

“I bought Rango from Cade last year,” Kissack said. “Then Cade taught me how to rope and win on Lizzie. I was having some trouble with her, just being able to rope good. Cade took me under his wing this winter and he taught me how to win on Lizzie. He’s helped me with both horses, and he’s been a huge influence. I wanted to dedicate my victory at Casper to Cade.”

Kissack tore his ACL last year. After rehabbing that, he suffered a herniated disc. He didn’t get back into the swing of the 2018 season until summer rolled around. And what a summer it’s been for the 28-year-old from Spearfish, S.D.

“My motto is I’m staying in my lane, I’m not looking around,” said Kissack, who took home more than $10,000 (a personal best) during Cowboy Christmas. “I’m staying focused on what I need to do, and I’m having fun.”

The win at Casper, a Wrangler ProRodeo Tour event, also will thrust him into the Tour standings.

Entering the weekend, Kissack ranked 49th in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $17,500.

“It took me until June to get to where I was competitive again and really quick-footed again and fully healed from my injuries last year,” said Kissack, who is headed to Nampa, Idaho, and Cheyenne, Wyo., next. “I don’t think I was in the Top 100 going into June. It’s pretty crazy that all this winning here in the last month has helped me leapfrog, big time.”

Kissack was ecstatic with the win.

“God opened the door for me with my health and my horses’ health,” he said. “It’s been a really, really long journey. … I’m just overwhelmed and very humbled.”

Other winners at the $265,675 rodeo were all-around cowboy Reno Gonzales ($2,373, tie-down roping and team roping); bareback rider Grant Denny (167.5 points on two head); steer wrestler Hunter Cure (7.7 seconds on two head); team ropers Jesse Stipes/Jake Smith (17.3 seconds on three head); saddle bronc rider Jade Blackwell (169 points on two head); barrel racer Kathy Grimes (34.76 seconds on two runs); bull rider Boudreaux Campbell (176.5 points on two head).

  1. Nat Stratton hits it big at Pikes Peak

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Saddle bronc rider Nat Stratton struck gold, winning $16,656 at the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo in Colorado Springs, Colo., with an 87.5-point ride in the final round July 14.

Stratton made a strong debut at Pikes Peak, winning the third performance by 3.5 points, the largest margin of the rodeo’s four performances. Stratton’s 87-point ride on Rocky Mountain Rodeo’s Hi Flyer qualified him for the finals.

“Man, I just drew good horses the whole way through, and God blessed me with this,” Stratton said. “Heck, we worked for this our whole life, and if not for him, we wouldn’t be able to do any of it.”

From there, it was all or nothing in the final round. But Stratton knew what he was in for as Jacob Lewis, Joey Sonnier III and Tyler Baeza had experience with Stratton’s draw for the final round, Harry Vold Rodeo’s Mountain Climber.

“That’s an outstanding horse, and about every time you can win on that sucker,” Stratton said.

Stratton’s 87.5-point ride on Mountain Climber in the final round was worth $15,594.

“It dang sure lets me rodeo more and gives me a shot for the NFR,” Stratton said. “It’s awesome and I try not to think about it and just go have fun. But it takes the pressure of expenses off. If you aren’t winning, you don’t make money. That helps get down the road.”

Stratton was no stranger to the stiff competition at the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo, having competed there when he was 19 – but he’s grown as a competitor since.

“I let the nerves get to me and was bucked off, but this time I let it hang out,” Stratton said. “I’ve been out of the Top 30 every year and would dang sure like to get into the Top 15.”

Before winning at Colorado Springs, Stratton wasn’t in the Top 50 for the 2018 PRCA | RAM World Standings. The California cowboy also won the Mason ProRodeo Classic in Lakeland, Fla., Jan. 27.

Stratton has been competing in saddle bronc riding in the PRCA since 2014. His best season to date came in 2017 when he ranked 35th in the world standings with $30,115. Now, one week before his 24th birthday, he’s on track to surpass his personal best.

Stratton didn’t wait for the dust to settle at Pikes Peak, as he hit the road by himself overnight to compete at the Silver State Stampede in Elko, Nev., which ended July 15.

Other winners at the $135,194 rodeo were bareback rider Ty Taypotat (84.5 points on JK Rodeo’s Seguaro); steer wrestler Will Lummus (3.8 seconds); team ropers Aaron Tsinigine/Blaine Vick (14.7 seconds); tie-down roper Reese Riemer (8.2 seconds); barrel racer Stevi Hillman (16.744 seconds); and bull rider Jeff Askey (based on his 87-point ride in the semifinals on 4L & Diamond S Rodeo’s Rustler’s Roost).

News & Notes from the Rodeo Trail

Bull rider Joseph McConnel, 24, is expected to miss at least a month after being injured when he was bucked off by 4L & Diamond S Rodeo’s Rodeo Houston, July 14, at the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo in Colorado Springs, Colo. McConnel suffered a spinous process fracture in his back when the bull stepped on him. McConnel, who was 19th in the latest PRCA | RAM World Standings, also suffered a collapsed right lung during the wreck. “I can feel everything,” McConnel said when asked if he had any paralysis. “After talking to a doctor (in Colorado Springs), they told me to sit out about a month. I just want to rest and get healthy and get back out there. Injuries are just part of the game in the bull riding.” …

Tie-down roper Cade Swor, a seven-time qualifier for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, is out indefinitely with a broken right arm. Swor suffered the injury while competing at the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, July 11, and he underwent surgery on the arm the same day. He’s expected to be sidelined for 6-8 weeks. Swor qualified for the Wrangler NFR in 2004-06 and 2014-17. He finished a career-best fourth in the 2017 world standings with $210,748. At last season’s Wrangler NFR he placed in eight rounds – highlighted by a second-place finish in Round 2 – and finished third in the average with $125,288. As of July 12, Swor was 22nd in the world standings with $34,880 …

PRCA Bull rider Jason Blasdelof Fruita, Colo., suffered fatal injuries while competing at a non-PRCA rodeo in Wyoming. Joe Blasdel, the father of Jason Blasdel, says his son was injured July 7 while competing at the Platte River Rodeo in Saratoga. Blasdel passed away July 8. He was 30. Jason Blasdel is survived by his wife, Heather and two daughters, ages 6 and 2 … The next PRCA Rodeo Camp will be Aug. 11 in Cascade, Mont. The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (MT). Registration is required at www.prorodeo.com/prorodeo/rodeo/youth-rodeo.

RODEO NEWS FROM THE PRCA

Courtesy PRCA
July 9, 2018
PRCA Stat of the Week
As of July 8, there have been 355 rodeos during the 2018 season paying out a collective $22,398,575.

1. Several cowboys eye Cowboy Christmas titles

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Gifts have been plentiful for several competitors during the 2018 Cowboy Christmas run.
With just one rodeo left to be completed on July 10 – the Rooftop Rodeo in Estes Park, Colo., a handful of cowboys are still in the mix to win the top roughstock and timed-event of Cowboy Christmas honors.
Unofficially as of July 9, reigning two-time world champion bareback rider Tim O’Connell is leading the roughstock chart with $31,014. His total will not change because he will not compete at Estes Park.
Saddle bronc rider Chase Brooks is close on O’Connell’s heels with $29,936. Brooks is currently tied for fourth place at Estes Park. Sage Kimzey, the reigning three-time world champion bull rider, has earned $29,856, but he is not competing at Estes Park.
Bareback rider Richmond Champion has earned $27,536 and has a chance to win more money. He will compete on Cervi Championship Rodeo’s Party Girl, July 10, in Estes Park.
The race to determine the timed-event Cowboy Christmas winner also is tight.
Unofficially, tie-down roper Cooper Martin is leading with $23,944, but he’s not competing at Estes Park.
Trevor Brazile is right behind Martin with $23,714 in earnings, and he’s competing in tie-down roping and team roping in Estes Park, Monday night.
Team ropers Aaron Tsinigine and Trey Yates have earned $20,333 each, and they also could overtake Martin while competing July 10 in Estes Park.
Brazile has the record for most money earned during Cowboy Christmas as he earned $39,993in 2011. Brazile earned $28,089 in tie-down roping that year and another $11,904 with partner Patrick Smith in team roping. Tie-down roper Shane Hanchey holds the single event, timed-event Cowboy Christmas record of $32,293 in earnings, which was set in 2016.

2. Cooper Martin cashes in at St. Paul Rodeo

ST. PAUL, Ore. – Riding Payday led to a big paycheck for Cooper Martin at the St. Paul (Ore.) Rodeo.
The tie-down roper won the two-head average with an 18.0-second time.
“This is a big win and I want to keep the ball rolling,” said Martin, 21.
For his effort, he departed town after earning $9,366. The timing of the victory was ideal for Martin, as he began July 7 in 19th place in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $36,571.
Martin was solid throughout in St. Paul. He had a 9.4-second run in the first round and followed that with an 8.6-second time in the second round.
“In the first round, I ran her out there and she stepped right, and I popped her down,” Martin said. “When I flanked her, I thought she was going to kick and she took the tie. That’s just where I wanted to be after the first round. Then on my next one I knew I had a really good one. I knew all I needed to do was catch her, and it was going to be easy.”
Martin purchased Payday in May 2017 from fellow tie-down roper Reese Riemer. Payday and Martin have meshed from the start.
A season ago, with Payday providing the horsepower, Martin made his Wrangler National Finals Rodeo debut. He finished ninth in the final world standings and earned $65,846 in Las Vegas, highlighted by winning Round 4 with a 7.6-second time.
“He (Payday) is awesome and he can really run,” Martin said. “It always helps to draw good calves, but you darn sure have to have a fast horse, and he has been awesome. I’m really glad that he stayed sound, and I’m going to keep riding him all summer. He’s 18 now, and my goal is to keep him as long as I can.”
The win at St. Paul added another layer of success for Martin during Cowboy Christmas. He was victorious at the Cody (Wyo.) Stampede (July 1-4) and pocketed $10,046, and he finished third in the average at the World’s Oldest Rodeo in Prescott, Ariz., (June 28-July 4) to earn $4,532.
Those earnings put Martin one step closer to returning to the Wrangler NFR, but he’s keeping things in perspective. He was 11th in the July 9 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $45,937.
“Everybody who makes the NFR, it is always their dream come true, but for me there’s more pressure making it again,” Martin said. “At the beginning of the year, I was trying to prove myself to make the Finals again rather than just going out there and realizing if I make the Finals I will make it and if I don’t, I don’t. I realize that nothing is guaranteed.”
Other winners at the $360,982 rodeo were all-around cowboy Clayton Hass ($3,966, steer wrestling and team roping); bareback rider Tim O’Connell (85.5 points on Bridwell Pro Rodeos’ Ted), steer wrestler Tyler Pearson (8.1 seconds on two head); team ropers Garrett Rogers/Russell Cardoza and Kolton Schmidt/Cole Davison (10.0 seconds on two head); saddle bronc rider Chase Brooks (87.5 points on Corey & Lange Rodeo’s Diamond Fever); barrel racer Tracy Nowlin (17.26 seconds); and bull rider Stetson Wright (91 points on Big Stone Rodeo Inc’s Mortimer).

3. Records broken at Oakley City, Estes Park

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – These are the runs team ropers remember.
Dustin Egusquiza and Kory Koontz broke the rodeo record at the Oakley (Utah) Independence Day Rodeo with a time of 3.5 seconds on July 6.
The duo won the rodeo with the time and each earned $3,946. Egusquiza and Koontz were the second team to break the rodeo record July 6, as team ropers Jeff Flenniken/Jake Minor briefly held the best mark at 3.9 seconds before Egusquiza and Koontz’s run.
“We just had a really good steer and I got a good start and headed on him pretty fast and it just shaped up really fast and Kory heeled him as quick as possible,” Egusquiza said. “I’ve been 3.5 a few other times, but that’s the fastest I’ve ever been, and it is cool, and I remember all the times I have been 3.5.”
Egusquiza and Koontz won Round 7 of the 2017 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo with a 3.5-second time. That was a Round 7 record at the Wrangler NFR.
Before July 6, the Oakley City record in team roping was shared by three sets of team ropers at 4.1 seconds. Kaleb Driggers and Junior Nogueira, and John Alley and Clark Adcock set the record in 2016. Then in 2017, Charly Crawford and Joseph Harrison tied the record.
“Dustin got it on really fast and it worked good,” said Koontz, a 21-time qualifier for the Wrangler NFR. “That was more like an NFR time right there. You can’t be that fast with any kind of hiccup in there. Dustin has the ability to get it on a steer maybe faster than anyone I’ve seen in my life. He got it on that one really fast and everything clicked. Last year (at Oakley City) Dustin turned one maybe even faster and the steer handled a little wild and I missed him, so this was good redemption for me.”
Steer wrestler Will Lummus tied the rodeo record at the Rooftop Rodeo in Estes Park, Colo., which ends July 10, with a 3.2-second time in the second round. He shares the Rooftop Rodeo record with John Lowry, who set the record in 1976, and Chad Hagan matched the time in 2002.
“Honestly I didn’t even know I did tie the record,” Lummus said. “That’s the fastest I’ve ever been, last year I was 3.3 (seconds) at Jackson, Miss., and that was my fastest time, so to go faster is awesome. I jumped on a horse K.C. Jones owns named Tebow, and it is a joke in our rig if you want to win first, just get on Tebow. Tebow scores outstanding and he just lets you win.”
Lummus is traveling with fellow bulldoggers Ross Mosher, Cody Cabral, Dane Browning and Jones. If Lummus’ two-head average time of 7.0 seconds holds, it will be a record at the Rooftop Rodeo. Kenny Coppini (2002) and Matt Reeves (2010) shared the previous record in the two-head average at 7.5 seconds. The rodeo ends July 10.
At the St. Paul (Ore.) Rodeo, team ropers Steven Duby/Evan Arnold tied the rodeo record with a 4.1-second run in the first round. Charly Crawford and Joseph Harrison set the St. Paul record of 4.1 seconds in 2017.

4. Jesse Wright sidelined with broken collarbone

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Jesse Wright, the 2012 PRCA world champion saddle bronc rider, was in the mix to make his eighth career appearance at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo this year.
That plan, however, took a detour when he was bucked off Calgary Stampede’s Urgent Delivery, June 29, at the Ponoka (Alberta) Stampede.
Wright landed on his left shoulder, breaking his left clavicle.
“I blew a stirrup and fell off on my shoulder before the whistle,” said Wright, 29. “Then it all just happened really quick. It whipped me out to the side and jerked me to the right real hard. I hold on with my right hand, and it just whipped me that way and I just came down on my left shoulder. It was the first thing to hit. I thought I had a stinger like you get in football, but after a couple of hours went by I decided it wasn’t just a stinger. I had surgery (July 3) and I had it (left clavicle) plated back together. I’m hoping my collarbone will be stronger now that it is (plated).”
Wright said he is going to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks because of the injury. As of July 9, Wright was 25th in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $26,554. Wright has qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo seven times – (2010-14, 2016-17).
“This sucks,” Wright said. “But I rode a long time pretty healthy, so I feel pretty blessed still. I will come back from it. I just need to get healthy and keep on keeping on.”
While Wright is on the mend, bareback rider Tanner Aus, who was 20th in the July 9 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $30,252, is hoping to return to action after injuring his left knee June 2 at the Flint Hills Rodeo in Strong City, Kan.
“I had grade 2 tears of my PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) and MCL (medial collateral ligament) in my left knee,” said Aus, who did not need surgery. “I just caught my toe in the gate leaving the chute. The horse shouldered into the gate and I caught my toe and peeled her back around. I double-grabbed right away and a couple guys came and helped me as I limped out of the arena. It wasn’t what I wanted to do.”
Aus, 28, is a three-time qualifier for the Wrangler NFR (2015-17). He finished a career-best third in the 2017 world standings.
“I have been rehabbing and riding a bike, and it (his left knee) has been getting better every day,” he said.
Aus is hoping to return to competition July 13 at the Central Wyoming Fair & PRCA Rodeo in Casper, Wyo., and the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo, July 14, in Colorado Springs, Colo.
“We just have to play it by ear,” Aus said about competing in Casper and Colorado Springs. “I don’t want to come back too soon. This could have been a lot worse. The injury could have been worse, and the circumstances could be worse, so I can’t complain at all.”

☛ Modernizing agricultural acts would provide some fixes for horse transportation 7-7-18

MODERNIZING AGRICULTURAL ACTS WOULD

PROVIDE SOME FIXES FOR HORSE

TRANSPORTATION

 

Press release from the Farm Bureau
July 7, 2018

Recently introduced bills address some of the unique challenges of transporting agricultural products and livestock. Both the Modernizing Agricultural Transportation Act and the Transporting Livestock Across America Safely Act would provide some fixes for hours of service regulations and the electronic logging device mandate.

 

Farm Bureau and several other agricultural groups’ primary concern with the HOS rules and the ELD requirement is the effect on the transported animals’ well-being.

 

Drivers who have to use ELDs would be limited to current hours of service rules, which restrict a driver to only 14 “on duty” hours, with no more than 11 active driving hours. Once a driver hits those maximum hour allotments, he must stop and rest for 10 consecutive hours, which would be problematic when transporting livestock and other live animals.

 

The Modernizing Agricultural Transportation Act (S. 3051) would require the secretary of transportation to establish a working group to identify obstacles to the “safe, humane, and market-efficient transport of livestock, insects, and other perishable agricultural commodities” and develop guidelines and recommend regulatory or legislative action to improve the transportation of these commodities.

 

The working group would have to consult various stakeholders and consider certain issues, including challenges and concerns caused by the HOS and ELD rules. The group is charged with submitting a report of its findings to the secretary, who would then use the report as a basis for proposing changes to the HOS regulations and the ELD mandate.

 

The measure would also suspend the ELD mandate for commercial motor vehicles hauling livestock, insects or perishable agricultural commodities until the secretary proposes regulatory changes.

 

The Transporting Livestock Across America Safely Act (H.R. 6079, S. 2938) would modify the HOS requirements for the hauling of livestock and fish in a few ways. Under the measure, HOS and ELD requirements would be inapplicable until after a driver travels more than 300 air-miles from the driver’s source.

 

In addition, the HOS on-duty time maximum hour requirement would be extended from 11 hours to a minimum of 15 hours and a maximum of 18 hours of on-duty time.

 

The bill would also exempt loading and unloading times from the HOS calculation of driving time; grant flexibility for drivers to rest at any point during their trip without counting it against HOS time; allow drivers to complete their trip – regardless of hours of service requirements – if they come within 150 air-miles of their delivery point; and require the driver to take a break for a period that is five hours less than the maximum on-duty time, after he completes his delivery and the truck is unloaded.

PRCA Stat of the Week

As of July 1, there have been 315 rodeos during the 2018 season paying out a collective $18,743,028.

1. Rodeo legend Harry Tompkins passes away

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The rodeo world lost a legend June 29.
ProRodeo Hall of Famer Harry Tompkins, an eight-time world champion – including five bull riding titles (1948-50, ’52, ’60), one bareback riding win (1952) and two all-around crowns – (1952, ’60), passed away in Stephenville, Texas. He was 90.
“He was a fun-loving, generous man,” said Martha Jordan, Tompkins’ daughter.
Tompkins, a quiet kid from Peekskill Mountains of upstate N.Y., who never saw a bull until the day he climbed on, became one of the best cowboys in the long and storied history of rodeo.
 Known for his sense of humor – he was photographed waving to a cameraman while riding a bull in 1949 – Tompkins was a popular champion with fans and his fellow competitors. A superb athlete and stylish rider, the 5-foot-8, 150-pound Tompkins possessed exceptional balance and coordination.
He took pride in living a clean-cut lifestyle – no cigarettes or alcohol, and no gambling. He traveled hard by car and airplane with friends and fellow champions Jim Shoulders, Casey Tibbs and Jack Buschbom, the first group to hit the road with the intensity and dedication characterized by modern-day cowboys.
“Really, I was always doing it for the fun, and it was fun for years and years,” Tompkins said in a Sept. 19, 1984, article in the ProRodeo Sports News. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
Born in 1927, less than 50 miles north of New York City in Furnace Woods, N.Y., Tompkins learned to ride horses while working on a dude ranch, which had rodeos on Sundays to entertain guests.
In 1946, at 19 years old, Tompkins prepared to pull his first bull rope alongside the pros at Madison Square Garden. It took place at a special rodeo promotion where area wranglers – sponsored by the dude ranches which regularly employed them – had a chance to try their luck. Tompkins worked at the Cimarron Dude Ranch in New York.
By 1948, he was atop the rodeo world, winning the first of three consecutive bull riding championships.
He married Rosemary, the daughter of famous stock contractor Everett Colborn, in 1950, and moved to Dublin, Texas. He had a cattle ranch and designed the portable steel chutes that were used at rodeos in New York and Boston. Wrangler made him one of the first cowboys to have a corporate sponsor. After Rosemary died of cancer, Tompkins married current wife, Melba. He was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame with the inaugural 1979 class.
“I hope that I am not only remembered for my major accomplishments in rodeo, but also for my reputation of being honest, fair and respected for what I did,” Tompkins said in an Aug. 11, 1999, article of the PSN.
Tompkins is survived by wife, Melba, and her family; sons, Mark (Laura) Tompkins; Neal; daughter, Martha (Larry) Jordan and grandchildren, Jake and Ava.
Funeral services will take place July 3 at 10 a.m. (CT) at the Cowboy Church in Erath County at 4945 US-67, Stephenville, Texas, 76401.

2. Bareback rider Brown wins Pecos for first time

PECOS, Texas – There was no need for bareback rider Jake Brown to get a book on the horse he drew June 27 at the West of the Pecos (Texas) Rodeo.
Brown had previously enjoyed plenty of success on Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Painted River, and that trend continued at Buck Jackson Arena.
Brown scored an 88-point ride on Painted River to capture the title at the West of the Pecos Rodeo for the first time. The rodeo concluded June 30.
“She’s an awesome horse, and I have had good luck on her in the past and I was pumped to have her,” said Brown, 28. “She did her deal and stepped around to the right after a couple of moves, and I was in time with her and made a good ride.”
For his performance, the Cleveland, Texas, cowboy earned $4,547. Brown remained fourth in the July 2 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $67,529 and he was thrilled to kick-start his Fourth of July run at Pecos.
“I was happy to get this win,” Brown said. “This is a rodeo I always wanted to do good at. I’m a Texas boy, so I like to do good at Texas rodeos. I consider Pecos part of our (Fourth of July) run because that started it for us. We have one day off through July 8. Getting the ball rolling quick and fast is a good confidence booster.”
Brown had no time to celebrate his Pecos conquest as he rode in Springdale, Ark. (June 28), Prescott, Ariz. (June 29), and Flagstaff, Ariz. (June 30). He will follow those with rodeos in Greeley, Colo.; Cody, Wyo.; West Jordan, Utah; Oakley, Utah; Estes Park, Colo.; and St. Paul, Ore.
“I love this time of year, especially when you get things going like I did in Pecos,” he said. “This is fun.”
It was no surprise Brown was smiling when he drew Painted River, considering his history with the horse.
In May, Brown placed second at the Guymon (Okla.) Pioneer Days Rodeo on Painted River with an 87-point ride.
Back in 2015 at his Wrangler National Finals Rodeo debut, he won Round 6 on Painted River with an 85.5-point ride. The following year at the Wrangler NFR, Brown placed second in Round 5 with an 88-point ride.
“I was really happy when I drew (Painted River) at Pecos,” Brown said. “She fits me good and we get along well. She is one I look forward to getting on. I knew I just had to take care of business (in Pecos), and the ride felt good.”
Brown finished a career-best eighth in the 2015 world standings. He’s keeping things in perspective as he makes another NFR run.
“I just need to take care of business and ride good and ride strong,” Brown said. “I want to go into the Finals with a shot to win it all. The first Finals I had was terrible, it didn’t go my way at all, but the other two I was happy with. They were better than the first. Being there is just the coolest thing in the world. It doesn’t matter if you don’t win a dime, you’re at the National Finals Rodeo. It is what you dream about your whole life, and you don’t get let down in one aspect of it.”
Other winners at the $206,385 rodeo were all-around cowboy Tanner Green ($6,508, tie-down roping and team roping), steer wrestler Brother Loud (7.5 seconds on two head), team ropers Kaleb Driggers/Junior Nogueira (13.9 seconds on two head), saddle bronc rider Ryder Wright (86.5 points on Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Mike & Ike), tie-down roper Scott Kormos (18.9 seconds on two head), barrel racer Hailey Kinsel (17.38 seconds), steer roper Bryce Davis (38.9 seconds on three head), bull rider Brett Custer (86.5 points on Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Super Freak).

DeMoss, who qualified for the Wrangler NFR in 2007, 2009-11 and 2013-17, was injured right before the whistle on Flying U Rodeo’s Red Smoke, June 20, at the Reno (Nev.) Rodeo. He didn’t register a score on the ride. DeMoss did have a 74-point ride on Big Bend Rodeo’s Owyhee Break at Reno one night later, but following that ride he realized his injury was something that needed to be repaired. He dislocated his left (free) arm, tearing the labrum and breaking a piece of bone where his bicep ties into it. During the surgery, a screw was inserted into the bone and the labrum was repaired. DeMoss had his surgery performed by Dr. R. Pepper Murray at Mountain West Surgical Center in Bountiful, Utah. DeMoss was 26th in the July 2 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $20,898.

Trenten Montero wins Sisters Rodeo

SISTERS, Ore. – Bareback rider Trenten Montero is making it count in points and in qualifications. An 81.5-point score on Corey & Lange Rodeo’s Envouge was what it took to grab his biggest win of the year at the Sisters (Ore.) Rodeo. He’s been holding back on competing so he can go to the year’s biggest rodeos during the summer run.
“You know, it doesn’t matter what the score is if your name is at the top of the leaderboard,” Montero said. “I could have been 89 or 85 or 81.5, it didn’t matter.”
This wasn’t the 26-year-old cowboy’s first time with Envouge. The Nevada native rode the bronc at Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days last year, so he knew what he was up against.
“He was really good there, too, but I got a little behind him at Cheyenne and it cost me there,” Montero said. “He’s a little horse with a lot of spunk to him. He’s really quick, but I was ready.
“I was just happy to get on that horse. I was worried because of him being a little horse and I’m a bigger guy (6 feet tall) and that can be a mismatch, but he has a lot of heart.”
Making it big in the PRCA requires a bit of luck and a lot of skill and strategic planning. One bad year can cut into qualifications the following year, so success requires two consecutive years of solid competition.
Montero’s been up and down the world standings since he started competing in the PRCA in 2011.
“I’ve gone hard at it a few times and been a little injury-plagued,” Montero said. “The past few years I’ve been in a repetition of a good year and then sit the next year out with an injury and then spend the next year building my qualifications back up.”
He was ranked 99th in bareback riding in 2016, but he bounced back and was 37th in 2017. Now he has the qualifications he needs to hit the biggest rodeos of the regular season.
“Last year was a solid year and I’m feeling healthy now, so I’m hoping this will be the year,” Montero said. “My plan is to really rodeo hard when there’s a lot of rodeos going on. In years past, I did more rodeo in the spring and winter and ran down my count. But, I have been holding off and hitting the big ones in the spring so I can go as hard as I want all summer long without worrying about my rodeo count.”
After winning Sisters, Montero was 26th in the June 11 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $19,420. Now it’s full steam ahead with his plans for the summer run.
“I will do the same thing I have been doing, marking my horses out and going at them every single time and not worrying about the standings too much,” Montero said. “I’ll let other people figure that out, and I’ll just ride my horses.”
Sisters is one of the biggest rodeos in June, making Montero’s ride worth $4,399.
“I have been needing a big win like this to get my ball rolling,” Montero said. “I got some small checks here and there, but this gives me confidence and momentum for the summer run. One good week can really change a guy’s year.
“My first goal is to get to the Finals and then I want to make a run for the gold buckle just like everyone else; but it starts with marking my horse out and making solid spur rides and taking each horse one at a time.”
Up next, Montero will compete at the Wild, Wild West Pro Rodeo at Silver City, N.M., Rodeo Santa Fe (N.M.), and then the next Wrangler ProRodeo Tour competition – the Reno (Nev.) Rodeo.
Montero’s no stranger to the Reno arena, having ranked second in the average in 2015 with 234 points on three head.
“I’m stoked to go back to Reno,” Montero said. “It’s the closest thing to a hometown rodeo we have, I live about 90 miles from Winnemucca.”
Other winners at the $149,984 rodeo were all-around cowboy Shane Erickson ($1,487, tie-down roping and team roping); steer wrestler Josh Garner (10.1 seconds on two head); team ropers Max Kuttler/Brandon Bates (5.5 seconds); saddle bronc rider Ryder Wright (88 points on Big Bend Rodeo’s Majorhuckleberry); tie-down roper Ryle Smith (19.0 seconds on two head); barrel racer Teri Bangart (17.63 seconds); and bull riders Ty Wallace (87.5 points on Corey & Lange Rodeo’s Peachy Keen), Dalan Duncan (87.5 points on Four Star Rodeo’s Hooey), and Riker Carter (87.5 points on Four Star Rodeo’s Yellow Fever).

2. Flying U Rodeo’s Against All Odds passes away

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The storied stock contracting company Flying U Rodeo lost one of its top bucking horses, Against All Odds.
The multi-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo saddle bronc horse passed away June 7 after a two-year battle with cancer. He was 13.
“He had skin cancer that was on his lip and we had to treat him weekly,” said Flying U Rodeo’s Reno Rosser. “It just got to the point where his life was going to be miserable. It’s tough (him passing) because bucking horses are so hard to come by anymore. You can find a bucking bull around every corner, but bucking horses are hard to find, and saddle bronc horses on top of that. I have a whole field of bareback horses, but great saddle broncs are hard to find.”
Against All Odds was a great one for Flying U Rodeo Company. He most recently competed at the Wrangler NFR in 2015.
“He’s one of the Top 10 horses we’ve had and considering we’ve been in business over 65 years that’s pretty good,” Rosser said.
Against All Odds was born in 2005 and enjoyed an eight-year career as a bucking horse.
“He was a small horse, but he could throw them off regardless the size of the cowboy,” Rosser said. “It is rare to see a horse that small in size have as much success as a bucking horse, which is why we named him ‘Against All Odds.’ What he lacked in size, he made up with heart.”
According to a post on Flying U Rodeo Company’s Facebook page, it is estimated that cowboys won more than $300,000 on Against All Odds over his career.

The horse was buried June 7 at the Flying U Ranch in Marysville, Calif., where all the other Flying U Rodeo Company’s livestock legends rest.

He said the money is from profits and proceeds earned from the rodeo last October.

NEWS FROM THE PRCA

Courtesy of PRCA
June 6, 2018
PRCA Stat of the Week
The total committee purse of the 2017 Reno (Nev.) Rodeo was $300,000, which was tied with the Ponoka (Alberta) Stampede for the 12th-highest committee purse last season. The total payout for the 2017 Reno Rodeo was $491,909. The 2018 Reno Rodeo is June 15-23 and is part of the new Wrangler ProRodeo Tour.

1. Harter captures Fort Smith

FORT SMITH, Ark. – Saddle bronc rider Bradley Harter has been to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo almost as many times as he’s been to the Old Fort Days Rodeo in Fort Smith, Ark. Up until this year, Harter hadn’t won either of them, but now that he’s checked off winning Fort Smith from his to-do list, he can continue to focus on winning his first world title.
“I’ve had a great career and I love rodeo, I missed the NFR last year, so my goal is to win a gold buckle before I get too old,” Harter said. “My goal is to win money every time I nod my head and have fun.”
Harter, 36, joined the PRCA in December 2001 and qualified for the Wrangler NFR in 2005-06 and 2008-15. He’s also never missed competing at the Fort Smith rodeo.
“I’ve been going to that rodeo every year since 2002 and had success there, but never won it,” Harter said. “It was pretty amazing to have a good horse and win first there.”
Harter’s 86-point score on Stace Smith Pro Rodeos’ Junior Bonner was well ahead of the pack, but it didn’t come easy. Junior Bonner bucked at the Wrangler NFR in bareback riding and saddle bronc riding when he was owned by Three Hills Rodeo.
“He leaves hard, and so it’s hard to spur out, and he won’t always do the same thing twice,” Harter said. “My goal was to get a good spur out and make sure I was riding to stay ahead of him.”
Fort Smith was the bronc’s first time bucking since Harter’s friend Stace Smith bought him.
“It was pretty cool because it was my buddy’s horse and the first time he bucked it since buying it,” Harter said. “I’m thankful to stay on. In rodeo you have to overcome adversity and any time you win first is great.”
Harter’s plan paid off to the tune of $2,718.
“It’s probably already spent – I live in Louisiana and it’s super hot, and my wife told the kids I won and then they hollered, ‘We’re getting a pool!'” Harter laughed about his sons, Houston, 8, and Branson, 4.
In the June 4 RAM | PRCA World Standings Harter was 16th with $26,278.
“My goal all season long when I started was to be No. 1, and when I ride I try to win,” Harter said. “I don’t sit and look at the standings because I don’t want to get sidetracked.”
Harter said his mentor, Tom Reeves, has told him not to aim just for the Top 15.
“If you want to make the playoffs, you’re going to get beat in the playoffs,” Harter said. “But, if you want to win the World Series, you have to strive to win the World Series.”
Winning a big rodeo at the beginning of June is a great way to boost a rider’s confidence before hitting the road for the Reno (Nev.) Rodeo and then Cowboy Christmas shortly after, Harter said.
Harter will be checking off the rest of his rodeo to-do list, with Reno next in line.
“I’m going everywhere,” Harter said. “What we do is really neat and the best job in the world, and I’ll try to win the big rodeos and enjoy every minute of it.”
Other winners at the $110,511 rodeo were all-around cowboy Zack Jongbloed ($1,345, tie-down roping and steer wrestling); bareback rider Ty Breuer (82 points on Andrews Rodeo’s Phantom); steer wrestler Tristan Martin (9.6 seconds on two head); team ropers Clay Smith/Paul Eaves (3.9 seconds); tie-down roper Tyson Durfey (15.6 seconds on two head); barrel racer Cheyenne Kelly (16.62 seconds); and bull rider Parker Breding (85 points on Andrews Rodeo’s Jail Break).

2. PRCA passes more than $1 billion in payouts since 1986

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Until the 20th century, early rodeos were informal events – exhibition matches of skill with nothing but pride and perhaps a few wagers at stake.
That is certainly not the case anymore.
The PRCA is the premier rodeo organization in the world – especially when it comes to paying contestants.
The PRCA recently passed more than $1 billion in payouts since 1986.
Trevor Brazile, the PRCA career earnings leader at $6,485,426, praised the PRCA for surpassing the $1 billion mark.
“That’s awesome,” Brazile said. “I know the last part of that has sped up from the first part. I think we are on that trend, and I think we will see it continue in that direction. It’s just forward thinking. Rodeo’s going to improve in leaps and bounds even from that.”
PRCA CEO George Taylor wants to continue to build upon the billion-dollar mark, and with the inclusion of The American, a $2.3 million rodeo, the PRCA is poised to do just that.
“We couldn’t do this without the unwavering support of our great sponsors and rodeo committees,” Taylor said. “Our goal is to escalate the sport of rodeo to heights it’s never seen before, and we want the next billion dollars to be paid out much more quickly than the last billion. We’re taking steps to ensure that happens; the PRCA strives to put more money into the pockets of its competitors.”
Since 2015, the committee purse at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo has been $10 million. In the last three years, each of the 120 qualifiers for the NFR has received a check for $10,000 from the total purse of $10 million. That $10,000 counts toward their NFR and world championship earnings totals, and they compete for $8.8 million over the next 10 nights.
Brazile acknowledged the sharp increase in PRCA payouts in recent years.
“That’s obviously something special, and it’s easier to win the dollars today than it was before and hopefully the trend continues for the guys that come after me,” Brazile said. “With the rodeos that have improved, it’s awesome because you can see the potential with the way they run their rodeos. My hat’s off to the rodeos that have improved that much over time because it shows the potential out there for other committees.”
