Saddle Bronc Rider Cort Scheer is back in competing

As many complain about the new norm following the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, which caused havoc in the world of professional sport, including the suspension of the PRCA competition. For some, like Cort Scheer, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise because it gave him time to recuperate.

After he got injured in his left knee while competing at the Powder River Rodeo and being diagnosed with a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. The veteran opted to relax his knee while exercising a little after much consultations from his doctor, who saw no need for surgery.

He went ahead to wear a knee brace for the following three months, and in the fourth month he began therapy getting laid-off the brace before he knew it, he was riding again. Therapy and horse riding turned out to be very helpful for his body in his recovery.

Scheer was quick to remember the ordeal he went through that fateful day by saying, “The horse kind of reared around the post there and kind of rubbed me off on the post, and I tore my knee up a little bit, and that injury was just a fluke deal. That’s an awesome horse who has been to the NFR a bunch of times. I dang sure would be excited to draw her again,”.

But he was grateful to put all that behind him when he went to compete at the Woodward (Okla.) on June 10 coming from injury and gained a 77-point ride. You could tell of the joy written all over his face for being back doing what he loves the most and passionate about by looking at him.

Evidently, “I feel great,” Scheer said. “I have been running around and I have been chomping at the bit the last month wanting to roll. I was skeptical to see how I would do, but it took me longer to wipe the mold off my chaps than it did to feel good about riding broncs again, so I was happy.”

Last year, in the PRCA | RAM World Standings, Scheer stood at number 19 with $72813. But after having more time in his hands, it got him re-thinking and strategizing, and we can’t wait to see how this year ends for Scheer. After promising to give his best in the NFR.

Kolby Wanchuk is excited to do Rodeo again

As we all have experienced the new norm since the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, which has disrupted activities throughout the entire World, including professional sport. The 2020 Professional Rodeo Cowboys Associations season was not exceptional, and in mid-March, ProRodeos were suspended indefinitely.

Kolby Wanchuk is excited to be back rodeoing

After much considerations by the PRCA, the ProRodeos resumed in the third week of May. It created an opportunity for the Cowboys and Cowgirls to Rodeo again to follow new measures to curb the spread of the Coronavirus.

Many of them expressed optimism and joy back at rodeoing, especially for saddle bronc rider Kolby Wanchuk. He won the Coleman PRCA ProRodeo in Texas and at the Dakota Rodeo Richie High with an 89-point ride. And in New Town Rodeo days, he settled by splitting second.

He is eyeing for the Crossett Riding Club 72nd Annual PRCA Rodeo trophy as he is leading with an 82.5-point at Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Empty Pockets. But on June 27, we will know who wins as the Rodeo conclude.

The 23-year-old Cowboy from Sherwood Park, Alberta, is thrilled to be back rodeoing. He highlighted having much fun while drawing good. Especially after the PRCA suspended it, Wanchuk kept busy and visited a friend in Northern British Columbia in May for a couple of weeks. The friend’s family were outfitters, and in the morning, he and his friend would skin logs to build a fence and look after the horses in the mountains for the rest of the day.

Following the June 22 PRCA | RAM World Standings, he moved up to 17 positions with $19444. And 2020 is going to be an extraordinary year for Wanchuk because he intends to do a lot of Rodeos, including those he has never participated in.

This month turns to be a busy one for Wanchuk, with a tight schedule starting July 2, at the Black Hills Roundup in Belle Fourche, July 3 at the Cody Stampede, July 4 at Mandan Rodeo Days and July 5 at Bigfork, Mont.

Last year, Wanchuk finished 21 in the World Standing with $68036 missing out on the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo debut. He was quick to express his much gratitude to be back to full-time rodeoing. He said that his goal was to qualify for NFR and not worry about riding the horse and maintaining consistency in his performance. We all cannot deny the fact, he is talented, and years ahead will prove that.

Veterans were humbled in Crossett by Rookie Emily Taylor

It was an incredible weekend for the fans at the 72nd Annual PRCA Rodeo in Crossett, Arkansas. The competition saw Rookie Emily Taylor win and get the biggest weekend check for $2495, outrunning her seniors, considering it was her first year.

The thrill of the event left people shocked to see the Cowgirl of Emory, Texas, and her mare Czech as they stopped the clock in 17.67 seconds ahead of 17.96 seconds from Tiany Schuster, who has already qualified for Wrangler NFR.

Roding Diva, another mare she finished seventh with a stoppage-time of 15.35 seconds in Mesquite, Texas adding a total of $227. Taylor was excited by her performance and took it to her social Facebook, sounding blissful of her two mares and making new friends.

Veterans Rookie Emily Taylor Outruns in Crossett

At the moment, Taylor is at 10th position in the WPRA Rookie Standings due to her astonishing performance over the weekend, despite the muddy conditions.

But she wasn’t the only one having an awesome weekend, because 4th place in the world Jill Wilson had a good time winning the Mesquite Championship Rodeo with a stoppage-time of 15.11 seconds which guaranteed her $968 and $1497 at the Crossett for being in the fourth place with a time of 18.20. The Cowgirl from Texas is after her first Wrangler NFR qualification.

17-time WPRA World Champion JJ Hampton run came to an end following the fast lightening breakaway roping by Brandy Gilbert with a stoppage-time of 1.9 seconds in Mesquite, which edged her with a 2.0-second run.

Over the weekend, other ProRodeo took place in Kadoka, S.D, where Rickie’s Sister, Taylor time of 2.4 seconds, was outrun by both Sawyer Gilbert and Rickie Engesser time of 2.0 seconds tying them to the win. For the Barrel racing in Kadoka, Callahan Tryan won with a 17.72-second run earning $1424, followed by Kelley Wheelhouse with 17.86 seconds and Wrangler NFR qualifier Jessica Routier settling for third place with 17.89 seconds.

Many contenders are preparing themselves for Cowboy Christmas, where they will be required to venture to rodeos unfamiliar to them—crisscrossing the United States for the 2020 edition with 14 rodeos on the schedule throughout Arkansas, Texas, Arizona, Kansas, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota, making it one of the busiest weeks (June 29-July 6) of rodeos this year featuring WPRA Breakaway roping at six of those rodeos. Don’t be left out on the action.

The unusual accomplishments of Cowboy Trevor Brazile

A lot of names have been used to describe the renowned Cowboy from Decatur, Texas but the one that suits Trevor Brazile very well is “King of the Cowboys.”

Trevor Brazile has 25 titles in the PRCA World Championships tie-down roper, team roper and steers roper. He has dominated the 21st century the Rodeos by setting records in 2006 single-season earnings with more than $329000, breaking that record multiple times in 2010 winning $507920.

The unusual accomplishments of Trevor Brazile

Brazile qualified in four events in NFR in 2003, making him the first Cowboy to do so. Not forgetting titles:

  • All-round in 2003-2004 and 2006-2015
  • Tie-down roping in 2007-2009 and 2010
  • Team roping in 2010
  • Steer roping in 2006-07, 2011, and 2013-15

In 2017, he won the all-round, steer-roping, and tie-down roping which enabled him to become the first 21st-century winner of the rodeo triple crown.

He is admired by the young Cowboy Jordan Lovins from Canada who happened to be the winner of the average title alongside Chase McGuire in the open division. They clinched the title in a 5-run time of 43.47 seconds.

Both of them pocketed $10300 and then while partnering with Sandstrom whom they settled for the second place with a run of 45.67 seconds, he earned $5600 gaining total earnings of $15900.

All of this took place at the Bob Feist Invitational near Oklahoma City, considering to be it was his first time being there and competing.

He was thrilled to win both first and second and went ahead to express his gratitude saying the wins were his most highlighted in his life.

But before the competition took place, earlier on Lovins, 17-years-old, hauled his steers at a friend’s home and his local fairgrounds in preparation for Wrangler BFI at the 3rd annual Hooey Junior BFI.

At the age of 5 is when he began honing his skills in team roping by competing and by 9, he started roping steers. Because his parents hauled them in competing with other kids of their age and made it easier by building an arena and there were horses, and along the years he came across people who turned out to help mold his young career.

Jordan Lovins also admires Joseph Harrison, the 3-time National Finals qualifier. Without a doubt, Lovins is the next generation of winners in PRCA and be sure to remember that name and stay safe during this time of COVID-19 pandemic.

History continues of well-known winners at Cave Creek

Celebrations continue at the Cave Creek (Ariz.) Rodeo after the first Pro Rodeo competition since the COVID-19 pandemic began in mid-March.

Despite fans not being allowed to attend in person to watch and cheer for their teams at the stadium, they will be able to watch the action at the comfort of their home through The Cowboy Channel from 10:30 p.m. (ET).

history of well-known winners at Cave Creek

Cave Creek might not be one of the biggest central-Arizona rodeos. It has maintained a history for recent years by attracting the biggest names in ProRodeo and seeing some in the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifiers.

In 2016, Canadian cowboy Luke Creasy won nearly $500,000 in ProRodeo competition. That year, he won the RAM Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo, and this was after winning at Cave Creek with 84.3 points.

A 4.2-second run saw Dirk Tavenner clinch the win for steer wrestling in 2017. He needs to qualify for the NFR. Despite being number 12, he is the favorite to win this year. But that is yet to be seen.

Last year, with just a 4.4-second run, the California steer wrestler Luke Branquinho was declared the winner of 2019 at Cave Creek. After qualifying for NRF 14 times and winning the world championship five-times.

In 2019, we witnessed the crowning of team ropers Nick Sarchett and Tom Richards after a 4.7-second run.

Ryder Wright won Rookie of the year in 2016 and went ahead to win in 2018 at the Cave Creek. He is at the peak of his career, and a lot is expected of him.

Coburn Bradshaw, who happens to be the uncle to Ryder Wright, in 2019 won at Cave Creek’s with 83-point in saddle bronc riding on The Cervi Brothers Wyatt Earp. In ProRodeo competition, Bradshaw wins have surpassed $1 million.

In 2016, Westyn Hughes was an exciting year for the tie-down roper when he made his NFR debut and went ahead to win Rookie of the year. And number 20 in the World ranking that year, but at the moment he is at number 14 after his win at Fiesta de Los Vaqueros.

The Colorado Chris Glover won Cave Creek with 36.4 back in last year.

An 87-point ride was enough for the Bull rider Boudreaux Campbell to win at Cave Creek rodeo in 2017. He clinched rookie title following his win that year, and ever since, he hasn’t missed any NFR competition.

Expectations are high for this year at Cave Creek rodeo, as fans wait to see future Wrangler contenders unfold in the arena.

Solid Season for the Steer Wrestler Tanner Brunner

Two years in a row, Tanner Brunner has had a solid season enabling him to qualify twice in the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

Tanner grew up in a ranching and rodeo family. His father, Tracy, was a steer wrestler, his mother, Yvonne, competed in barrel racing as well as his older sister Cat. However, after finishing 15th place, consecutively in a row has left him yearning for more and hungry to win.

Solid Season for the Steer Wrestler Tanner Brunner

Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the rodeos were stopped in mid-March and restarted the third week of May.

He was quick to acknowledge that apart from being a big stage, one gets to learn something new every time you are there, and he hoped to surely use every bit of knowledge he has gained along the way when he gets in the arena.

Brunner has kept his word by moving his way up to number 8, gaining $26235 at the PRCA. On June 13, in Woodward (Okla.), he had to split the wins with Elks Rodeo and at Coleman. This saw him elevate five spots in PRCA standings.

Brunner could not hide his joy after that performance and felt proud of himself wishing he would attend the rodeos every single day when in a high spirit. Highlighting on some good steers and rode miss Kitty, 13, both at the Coleman and Woodward.

He had a 3.8-second run in Woodward and earned $3266 by tying with Trell Etbauer. 3.7 seconds was his stoppage on the clock in Coleman and made $1925 after splitting the victory with Gabe Soileau.

After the postponement of Rodeos due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Brunner kept busy with his family while working at a farm and his uncle’s cow-calf operation premises in Ramona, Kan.  

“I practiced a little bit, took some time off, and let my horses take some time off. When things looked like they were going to get going back, I started practicing and getting my horses back in shape, but I enjoyed my time at home for sure.” Said Brunner.

Brunner is eying the World’s Oldest Rodeo, which is to take place on June 29 at Prescott, Ariz. After that, he will compete at the Independent Day Rodeo in Oakley (Utah) on June 30 and on July 1 at the Stampede, Cody (Wyo.).

Surely the fans will have something to smile about when Brunner does what he does best in the arena.
