Breaking It Down With Speed Williams With the finals over… what do we work on now? Congratulations to those who had success in Las Vegas. I take my hat off to Clay Smith for winning his second world title. I’m especially proud of Wesley Thorp for his first world championship. I’ve known him since he was very young and he’s always had a burning desire to get better. He has accomplished so much in his 24 years and is a great example for kids with a dream. There were a lot of people who went to the finals with big dreams, but many more who drove home with their dreams shattered. It’s a new year and time to start back roping with new dreams. One of the things I always did when starting a new year, analyze my weaknesses and lay out a game plan to work on the steers that would eliminate me. A header needs to stay sharp and what dictates much of your success is how well you react when the gates bang. At the NFR you need to be moving and “floating” to the line and reacting to what the steer does. If you get a good start, things are so much easier. Brenten Hall, at the NFR for the first time, handled the set up well. He would go towards the pin, was never in a rush, and always looked in control. His horse cowed well and allowed him to make

it look easy. One thing that gets NFR headers in trouble is breaking wide and having lots of rope out. It puts your heeler in a bad position. He has to ride around the end of the swing, or corner, and throw. If he takes a swing over their back, the header is in the fence and they won’t get a flag. There were some great runs made at the NFR this year. There were some headers that hung it on fast but didn’t help their heelers much. There were some heelers who left Las Vegas fighting their head. It is a team sport and you need to try and give your heeler the best shot possible to try and win as much as you can at the NFR. There were more teams with a chance to win the world title on the last day of the NFR than I can remember. It sure made for some excitement on Saturday night. Many had a chance to win life changing money at the World Series Finals. I had a chance to work with some ropers at some of various locations where we had Speed Trainers set up. What I found was whether it was a #3 or #6, headers do not like trying to rope cows close to them. And as I explained over and over, we have to practice catching the cow that will take you out of the roping. Imagine you back in the box and it’s 22’ long, and you get a great start on a slow steer. But if you can’t

catch him when your horse runs up close… then you’re not preparing for the cow that will let you win money. Using the Speed Trainer is like setting up a golf simulator. You don’t want to play golf all day without working on putting. When you draw the easy steers… you need to be able to catch. It’s math, angles, and creating muscle memory to catch slow, close, easy steers. It’s also important to learn to drop two coils when you draw a runner. We need to learn to catch ALL steers. That’s one of the things I love about the Speed Trainer. I can simulate so many scenarios that can’t be replicated on the ground. To improve you have to simulate as close to real action practice as possible. So many headers struggle with being ready to rope once they get to the cow. That include riding across the line and swinging. Often at the WSTR Finals when ropers drew the poodle and got out on top of them, the header took four or five swings and the missed. That’s the steer that will give you a chance to win something. but you have to be able to catch him. So many things come into play, but it really starts when you nod. Being able to put weight in your stirrups, swing your rope, and be ready to rope when you get there. If your horse doesn’t cow down and you have to fight him, when you pull, you usually pick up your tip and it’s harder to catch the cow. There are many factors that go into catching the slow steer.

Between now and the next time you rope for BIG money, work on what eliminated you. Work on what cost you money, so you’ll be better prepared. Try to simulate the steer that cost you and run him over and over again. When Rich and I were rodeoing, I would always try and simulate things that went wrong so when it happened again, I was prepared. Whatever you compete on when you leave home is what you need to prepare for. Don’t score problem steers… learn to catch them so you’re better prepared during competition. What’s new with me: I have been staying very busy with private lessons. My son loves to rope every day and when we do have a rare day off, he wants to rope. Hali’s shoulder is holding up and she’s back roping. I’m very excited with the response from customers who have purchased the Speed Trainer. I love hearing how much their horsemanship has improved and how they’re catching more. We’ll soon have some videos and testimonials on speedroping.com. The Speed Trainer built out of a desire to teach my kids and have them learn faster. I wanted a simulator that we could practice on, over and over, and work on their weaknesses and eliminate things they did wrong on their horses. When you pull on the reins by mistake, the buzzer goes off, giving you an immediate response. Instead of constantly changing bridles all times, it’s far better to learn to control your horse correctly.

Developed by 8-Time Consecutive World Champion Team Roper, Speed Williams

The Speed Trainer can help you: • Improve balance and horsemanship • Learn to rope quicker • Dally better • Isolate and correct mistakes • Work with your horse for smoother and quicker runs

Big Al’s View Of The World

Trevor Lattin on a big grey bucker at the UPRA Cinch United Finals Rodeo in Sulphur Springs, Texas. Shelby Conlon Photography

Volume 29 Number 6

R&M Rodeo Photos I have always been a Texas history fan. I’ve read just about any book I could put my hands on about the subject. Texas history can be anything from El Paso to Orange and from indians to oil wells. One facet of Texas history that always come up is the story of the Texas Rangers. Not the baseball team but the real Rangers. They were the first law in Texas as a state. They were bigger than life and make a large target in history. One of the quotes that you’ll see associated with the Texas Rangers is the following: No man in the wrong can stand up to a man in the right that keeps a comin’. It’s fitting that as I sat down to write this article I had just read Pastor Randy Weaver’s article on the facing page. I had also just been on Instagram a bit earlier and saw more than one post about changing your life for the better. The post said, “you’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily.” Another Instagram quote I saw today was this one: “the secret to getting ahead is

getting started.” That dang Instagram is just one big inspirational machine. Something good can actually come from social media after all. This all leads up to Pastor Randy’s article about “hope.” Hope is a powerful tool to have. I have said before that where there is no hope there is nothing. Young kids in the inner cities have nothing to hope for therefore they get into gangs and worse. Give them hope and you can turn a life around fast. I read an article a few years back where Clay O’Brien Cooper said the first thing you have to each day is get up out of bed. There has to be something to make you get out of bed. You have to have hope for the future. As we start 2020 I can’t think of anything better than “hope” to think about in the new year. To quote Pastor Randy, “All things are possible with God but we must cooperate with Him by being hopeful and full of faith.”

When you’re making your new year’s resolutions in the next few weeks keep “hope” in mind. Not the “I hope I get rich one day” but the “hope” of making a difference in your or some other person’s everyday life for a better future. No man in the wrong can stop a man in the right that keeps a comin’. If you keep hoping there is nothing you can’t do. Pastor Randy says hope is a foundation. Get up out of bed, get to work and keep a comin’ with the hope that you’re making a difference in the world today and tomorrow. Hard work and hope is a great place to start your year off. That’s enough preaching from me. Go read Pastor Randy’s article, it’s just right here>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Hoping for a brighter future, Big Al’

“Prisoners Of Hope” From Pastor Randy Weaver What is a prisoner of Hope? It is someone who refuses to stop hoping in God, no matter how bad his or her circumstances are. Abraham was such a man. We learn from God’s word that all human reason for hope being gone, Abraham hoped in faith that God’s promise would come to pass in his life. Romans 4:18 “Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Usually, when we hear people say they are “hoping” something will or will not happen, they are vaguely hoping but clearly doubting. They speak negatively and complain about almost everything and then wonder why nothing works out for them. Many have confused and adopted their hope in God with hope in man and man’s intelligence. It is much easier to have faith in the things that are seen than the things that are unseen. John 20:29 ~ Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” At some point, we must live according to God’s word, not our feelings. Godly hope is not the same quality as what the world calls “hope”. True Biblical hope is a solid foundation; it is a springboard for our faith to take off from and actually take hold of the promises of God. Satan cannot defeat a person who refuses to stop hoping in God. I think we can say real hope is a constant positive attitude that no matter what is happening currently, things will change for the better. Hope is powerful. It opens the door for the impossible to become possible. All things are possible with God but we must cooperate with Him by being hopeful and full of faith.

COWBOYSPORTSNEWS.COM

God promises that He will restore double what we have lost or had stolen if we will stay hopeful. It does no good at all to be hopeless. It only makes us unhappy, critical, and grouchy. Hopelessness leads to depression and many other problems become a pris-

oner of hope. Be the kind of person who absolutely refuses to be negative, and get ready to receive a double blessing for your former trouble. As a “prisoner of hope” we must allow ourselves to be captured by and filled with hope. When you face a seemingly hopeless situation, remember that in God, you are a prisoner of hope; there is no way to get away from the hope that is in Him. Keep your hope in God!

Charlie the Champion 2019 CPRA Champion Barrel Racer Charlie Johnson By Krista Lucas The United Professional Rodeo Association and the Cowboy’s Professional Rodeo Association are always packed with talent year after year. The CPRA held the 27th annual finals rodeo October 1113 in Angleton, Texas, and one cowgirl from Giddings, Texas had her best year yet. Charlie Johnson may be on everyone’s radar now, after a successful year in both the CPRA and UPRA, but the south Texas cowgirl has been working toward her rodeo dreams her entire life. “I’m pretty certain I was born loving horses,” Johnson said. “My grandfather, B.R. Gloor, raced quarter horses and always had a few around. My first two ‘real’ barrel horses were bred and raised by

him, so he was a big part in my start.” Her love of horses has led to her hard work paying off in the rodeo arena. Johnson won the 2019 CPRA barrel racing championship, banking $15,771.68 for the year. She also qualified for the UPRA

Johnson. “I was pretty disappointed in my performance at both finals,” she said. “I just barely held on for the year end title for the CPRA but left a lot of money on the table at both finals. It was my first trip to either, and I will definitely

son’s horse, Phoenix, earned the Horse of the Year title as well. The pair has not been a team for long but have already accomplished a lot together. Johnson’s boyfriend, Justin Maass, purchased the mare, registered name “Phoenixonthecimarron”, about two years ago. “He’d had her in calf horse training for a good while and liked her, so when the opportunity came up to buy her, he did. I hadn’t been on her before that point but was told she’d had barrel training. When I started on her, she had a really cool feel,” Johnson said. “Tried selling her, no one bit, so I just kept on and eventually got the kinks worked out. She still has her days, but since this spring she has been pretty solid.” Phoenix is not the only nice horse on Johnson and Maass’ place. Together, the couple operates Maass Performance Horses. “We’d known one another a good while just due to the fact we lived about 20 minutes apart,” she said. “We started dating nearly five years ago, and it’s been great. The only thing we argue over is horses.” Buying, training and selling roping and barrel horses is a full time job in itself and can be stressful, but business has been very profitable for both of them. “Between the two of us and our help, we ride 20 to 30 head a day. Some are in training, some are for sale, and some are ours. He’s also got lesson kids that show up

horses, until I eventually steal them completely,” Johnson said. “We’ve got a good thing going and have both been turning out some good horses.” Maass is a professional roper who has qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo eight times and has over $1 million in Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association career earnings. Having so much talent under one roof, Johnson and Maass have both learned from each other. “I’m a slow and meticulous trainer, and he’s helped me to not worry about them so much, and let them make mistakes,” she said. “At the end of the day, he’s ‘been there and done that’ in the rodeo world, and having him in my corner has been my biggest blessing.” Johnson and Maass both had a hand in making Phoenix the Horse of the Year she is today. Not only does Johnson run barrels on the mare but has also competed on her in breakaway roping as well.

“I rope, but it’s never been easy for me. I like to start young horses on the sled, just don’t ask me to be two flat at a rodeo,” Johnson said. “I roped my calf and placed in the barrels at the Gunner Thames in Wimberley this year on Phoenix. That was an accomplishment in my book.” Having a winning horse like Phoenix makes rodeoing fun, and Johnson hopes to continue their winning ways into 2020. Johnson also enjoys the camaraderie that comes with rodeo. “We usually have a group of us that go together, and it’s a big time. I’m planning on going to the pro rodeos starting in January, and if it works out I’ll keep going,” she said. “We’ll just have to see how it goes. I earned an American Semi-Finals spot a few weeks ago, so I definitely want to be firing on all cylinders come the end of February.” Some other accomplishments the duo has experienced in 2019 include making

the card holder short round at the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association finals in Waco, Texas, winning fifth at the Liberty, Texas pro rodeo

and winning first at the Bryan, Texas CPRA rodeo to kick off a great start to the 2020 season. Johnson, who is spon-

like Phoenix and the support of family and friends in her corner, the CPRA champion cowgirl has a recipe for rodeo success.

In The Spotlight With Sunny B’ Hey cowboys & cowgirls! This month I am going outside the box. I am traveling for the next two weeks and thought I would write about some things I got to see on our trip to Las Vegas and back. Back in the day the good team ropings were at the rodeos, so for big money that is what you entered if you thought you roped well enough. That has all changed today as you now know we live in the world of jackpot ropings. So like all the other “jackpot junkies”, we loaded up on Sunday, December 1st and headed west to jackpot heaven! Yes, we are in Wickenburg, Arizona. Everyday is Christmas here, for a few teams anyways! There is also a roping for every age and gender so no worries everyone can dump some money here. I hear people talking how they have worked and saved for a year to be able to come and camp out in this town and a few small surrounding towns, just to team rope. Not to mention the gas or diesel to get here! Wow there is some dollars thrown down here! Some ropings get 300 teams and some get 600. Imagine that at $150 a man or some $300 a man! WOW! A friend of ours won $10,000 yesterday and hasn’t even made it to Vegas to the World Series Finale where I may add it is another $2,000 a man to rope

there. I cannot even fathom the dollars spent on fuel stalls , hookups and fuel while you are here. Not to mention money spent on food, souvenirs and cleaning. You better take your jeans before you get here cause it is $6 dollars a pair and takes 3 days! If you’re notcareful you can spend all your slot machine money before you even hit the city limits of Vegas! But it is like vacation to us. Of course normal people go to Disney, the beach or skiing. Not us, but whoever said there was anything normal about our family!! So we camped here all week and spent a little an won nothing but at the end of the day we were surrounded by good family friends and had a lot of great fellowship, so I see that as worth it. Friday we loaded up camp as they day and headed for Vegas. Saturday morning we attended the Rope For The Crown and what a great roping it was!

Loni Kay Lester represented The Seth Broesche Memorial Roping and did an amazing job to make it back to the top 15 with 75 of the worlds toughest women on earth! She didn’t have the draw in her favor but we were so honored to Seth’s roping included once again in the great event. From there we

COWBOYSPORTSNEWS.COM

headed over to Horsemans Park where the kids were doing their thing to watch all of them. Tylie McDonald was outstanding to say the least as well as Aspen Miller and quiet a few others! There is so much going on it’s hard to make it everywhere you really want to go. We left there and headed for The Orleans to watch the barrel racers and Bailey Reina did a great job on a young horse but fell thru the crack on the D deal. You barrel racers know how that goes. Rylee Reina however was able to get a go around win and make the short go. We didn’t get to see it all as we were off to another event! Our past champion JJ Hampton came out with another great win

there! We are so blessed to have her continued support for our family. We saw our Florida girl who is Texan at heart, Harley Pryor take home the W against the boys!! It is great what roping is doing these days for the kids! We have been so fortunate for so many to help us out & pray for our family. Our goal is to give back as much as we can. You can cover a lot of territory in a few short hours in Vegas!! Wow What an event. The thing that worries me the most is we all know “Sin City“ has always been an adult venue and seeing all these kiddos running through the casinos and

parking lots did make me a little on edge. It is a shame these events all have to be in Vegas to bring the big bucks to them. There were a couple of scarey incidences I knew of that were pretty upsetting. With all the homeless people on the streets as well as thugs you have to be so cautious now. There was a video on facebook where some cowboys took down a robber at the kids event! We really enjoyed our time and finished up Monday night with a great performance of the NFR. I have not watched many rodeos full on in my 62 years but this one is great!. So we pulled out Tuesday after we had had enough and headed east. Taking in some beautiful scenery along the way. Snow capped mountains were gorgeous. We made a pit stop in Clovis, New Mexico and stayed at the Mayfields place. A great family. Of course they were all in Vegas but offered their home to us and it is so wonderful to have rodeo family that will do this. I just want to say the NFR was very interesting we saw titles won by people you wouldn’t have thought and some lost the same way. At the end of the journey it is good to be back on the black land of Snook , Texas and now focusing on a little holiday cheer with family and good friends. We are working on our 4th Annual Seth Broesche Memorial event just around the corner. Feb 1st we will be in full swing! CPRA approved calf roping & breakaway as well as mens & womens ranch rodeo. Check us out here in the Cowboy Sports News! Alan does a great job with this paper and we are fortunate to have a great place to advertise all of our events. Do’t forget to put on your calanders February 1 st , 2020 Saturday night our dance and live auction Featuring Wesley Westbrook and the Restless Kind and opening is the great Carson Jeffrey! If you have not heard his music you are missing out! Sarah Green will perform her song for Seth and we will have a large time! Once again thank you all for reading and allowing me to interview our champions of the future as well as of today. Stay tuned for my article in the coming year as I have a few new things up my sleeve!!! From our family to yours. Merry Christmas & Happy new Year!

Gold Buckles Earned In Vegas Courtesy of the PRCA Sage Kimzey is still the king of PRCA bull riders. The Strong City, Okla., cowboy won his sixth consecutive world championship at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo before 16,904 fans at the Thomas & Mack Center, Saturday night. Kimzey finished the season with a PRCA bull riding record $480,797, breaking his record of $436,479 set in 2017. Kimzey also won the average with 709 points on eight head. “It was just a grind,” Kimzey said. “I had a lot of bumps and bruises, but I put my best foot forward, and every bull matters – that made the difference. There are times we are sore and tired and question why we do this, but the guys with the gold buckles can block that out, and that is what I really excel at.” Kimzey tied Jim Shoulders’ PRCA record for consecutive bull riding world championships at six. Shoulders won seven career bull riding titles and six in a row from 1954-59. Don Gay holds the PRCA record for most bull riding world titles with eight. “It’s hard to put into words, it is something that will take a long time for me to realize what it means,” Kimzey said. “I’m just riding bulls and having fun. I feel good about it (passing Gay’s record). It’s a tall mountain to climb, and I knew that when I set out to do it. To be one step closer feels great.” Rookie Stetson Wright came in as the leader in the all-around standings and held off all challengers to win the prestigious title with $297,923. Wright became the first roughstock rider to win the all-around crown since ProRodeo Hall of Famer Ty Murray did it in 1998. Wright, who also is a saddle bronc rider, finished third in the bull riding standings with $267,345. “I don’t know, I guess I just got lucky all year or something,” Wright said. “It’s pretty awesome. I don’t have much to say, but I’m super happy right now. Although Wright is young, he was thrilled to come through in the clutch like a veteran. “I do it for these moments right here,” he said. “Being a world champion is something I’ve dreamed about since I was a kid. Hopefully (I can win) many more world titles. I hope to win a bunch more and have a healthy season (in 2020).” Bareback rider Clayton Biglow had a Wrangler NFR for the ages to claim his first career gold buckle. The Clements, Calif., cowboy won five rounds at the Wrangler NFR, including winning Round 10 with

an NFR record-tying ride of 93 points on Northcott Macza’s Stevie Knicks. It was all part of a victory binge for Biglow. He also won the average with 886.5 points on 10 head and earned $243,891 at the Wrangler NFR – not counting ground money. That total was the most money earned of any contestant at the Wrangler NFR and won him the RAM Top Gun Award. “This is crazy,” said Biglow, 23. “I have been dreaming of this for a long time, and I don’t know what to say. This is something you work for your entire life and when it finally happens, you don’t realize it happened. It hasn’t hit me yet, but it will. It’s hard to put into words.” “This is the Finals I dreamed of and to have it come true I literally laid in bed every night for the last three months thinking about this moment,” Biglow said. “I got this gold buckle. That’s the only thing I was worried about this week. That gold buckle is going right on my belt. “A lot of the time, to get my mind off the gold buckle, I just kept thinking go win that Top Gun. If you win that Top Gun, the world championship is yours because you’re going to win more money than anybody else. I’m so glad I drew great horses all year long and here.” “I’m going to rodeo with that truck next year and drive the wheels off it,” Biglow said. When the 2019 Wrangler NFR began, rookie tie-down roper Haven Meged wasn’t in the title talk. Well, Saturday night, the Miles City, Mont., cowboy was holding the gold buckle with $246,013. He also won the average with an 85.7-second time on 10 head. The 21-year-old Meged narrowly defeated Shane Hanchey, the 2013 tie-down roping world champ, by $1,181 for the world championship. Meged, the 2019 PRCA Resistol Rookie of the Year, is the first rookie to win a tie-down roping gold buckle since Joe Beaver in 1985. Meged also became just the fourth person in ProRodeo history to win a college championship and a world championship in the same year, following in the footsteps of Ty Murray (allaround, 1988); Matt Austin (bull riding, 2005); and Taos Muncy (saddle bronc riding, 2007). “It’s a dream come true,” Meged said. “I hurt myself three weeks before here and have just had faith in God that it would be alright, and this is his plan. To come together, to win Rookie of the Year, the average saddle and this (a gold buckle), it’s unbelievable.” “I kind of kick myself for not placing better. I let a couple calves get away from me. I went out (Saturday) morning and practiced to slow down, think about why I’m here, and to not overdo anything. To do what we do,

focus on why and how we got here, just try not to make it complicated.” For the second time in four years, saddle bronc rider Zeke Thurston is PRCA world champion. Thurston snared the world championship by earning $347,056. That season total is a record, breaking the mark of $284,938 set by Ryder Wright in 2017. “It’s awesome,” Thurston said about winning his second gold buckle. “Honestly, I don’t know what to say. I wanted this second one worse than I wanted the first one. I came close last year, but it was a roller coaster out here. Lots of ups and downs, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.” Thurston, of Big Valley, Alberta, became the first cowboy to win a PRCA world championship and Canadian Professional Rodeo Association world title in the same year since saddle bronc rider Taos Muncy in 2011. Ty Erickson came into the 2019 Wrangler NFR as the regular-season leader for the third time in four years. Each previous time he came up short of winning a gold buckle. The Helena, Mont., cowboy earned $234,491 to win the world championship. Matt Reeves won the average with a 48.4-second time on 10 head. “Oh, man, that’s better than I expected,” Erickson said about the sound of him being the world champion. “This is a dream come true. I’ve been dreaming of this since I was a little kid. Now that it’s happened, it’s pretty surreal.” Erickson tried to keep his emotions in check before Round 10. “Today, I was just focused on my job and what I wanted to do,” Erickson said. “I wanted to get a good start and just go make a good run. After I saw what I had drawn, I knew I had a good, honest steer tonight and would be able to do what I wanted. I was just outside (the money) in the round, but that’s OK because I made the run I wanted tonight, and everything worked out. “This means everything,” Erickson said. “This is all we’ve been working for the last seven years. Every morning, this is what we get up and work toward, so now that it’s actually come true and we’ve accomplished that, it couldn’t mean any more to me. My aunt being the one to hand me the buckle made it even more special. “This makes all the all-night drives, not doing well at a rodeo, all the tears, sweat and blood all worth it now.” Team roping header Clay Smith now has won back-to-back gold buckles. The Broken Bow, Okla., cowboy earned $268,820 to edge Cody Snow ($256,938). Smith – with partner/heeler Jade Corkill, who finished fourth in the world standings – placed in six rounds, including winning Round 2 to clinch his world title. “I really want to thank Jade for heeling steers, and there were ones only he could heel this week,”

Smith said. “I feel bad, like I let him down. It is a team deal and I didn’t do well enough for him to win too. He is the best heeler in the world.” Smith took a moment to digest what his second gold buckle means to him. “It means a lot to me – it comes in order of faith for me, then my family and this is No. 3, and it’s all I think about,” he said. “We were raised in rodeo, and to win the world is an accomplishment, a big one for me, and I’m very thankful.” Team roping heeler Wesley Thorp left the Thomas & Mack Center as a world champion for the first time. The Throckmorton, Texas, cowboy – roping with header Cody Snow, who finished second in the world standings – earned $249,181 to finish atop the world standings. Heeler Junior Nogueira was second with $238,243. Snow/Thorp won the average with a 43.8-second time on eight head. “It means that these are the guys I looked up to the most growing up and I put on a pedestal still as heroes,” Thorp said. “It’s like they were on a different playing field and even today they are guys I look up to, and to be one of them is amazing and a dream come true. You hope it could come true, but you never grasp what it feels like. I’m at a loss for words on it, but it feels unbelievable and I’m happy with everything. We came with a game plan and stuck with it. I had tremendous support the whole time.” Thorp also praised his partner Snow for helping reach the pinnacle of rodeo success. “I’m so proud of how he has done this week,” Thorp said. “I truly thought he had more control with his roping and his horse than anyone in this arena, and that goes a long way. He made my job easier and he ropes phenomenally all year long, and he is one of my best friends.” For the second consecutive year, barrel racer Hailey Kinsel finished the season as a world champion. Kinsel, of Cotulla, Texas, earned $290,020 to finish atop the world standings. Ivy Conrado-Saebens was second with $264,673. Conrado-Saebens also won the average with a 138.44-second time on 10 head. “Definitely not,” said Kinsel when asked if winning her second world title had sunk in. “I wish I’d have finished stronger, and I think that’s still on my brain a little bit. Other than that, I’ve dreamed of this, and it’s awesome. I’m floored, and it’s very emotional.” Kinsel was quick to praise her horse, Sister, whom she rode for both world championships. “She’s incredible. I can see how incredible she is, and I hope others can, too,” Kinsel said. “She’s just done things that I don’t know how many other horses can do. It’s incredible, and I’m thankful because I hardly have to ask for anything from her to give me her best effort. She just does it.”

For 2020 we are changing some things up for Texas Youth Rodeo Association. We are going to have 2 benefits and then 16 other rodeos, out of those 16 rodeos you claim 10 of those for points and the other 4 you may go to and jackpot to get those extra runs in! You still will have to attend at least 6 of the club rodeos plus be in the top 25 to come the finals. We are going to use a 25 point system – 1st place you receive 25 pts, 2nd place you receive 24 pts…..etc 25th place you receive 1 pt. Except for the Finals, the change we will make is that once you get to the short go’s of the 2 benefits the short go will only count for 10 points, since we only bring 10 to the short round, the long go and average will use the 25 point system. WE WILL BE ADDING MONEY IN THE FINAL AND GIVING AWAY 6 YEAR END ALL AROUND TRAILERS. In addition, saddles for the year end event and saddles for finals event winners. We will also have buckles for the top 2-6 place in the year end event winners. Rough Stock will only be ridden at the January rodeo, benefits and finals. At the benefits for rough stock we will have the 1st go on Friday night, 2nd go on Saturday and Short Go on Sunday (all other events will be a long go and short go).
