I

t’s obvious that Brian Buckner strives to be the best in everything he does, and his winning track record at USTPA competitions reveals that he’s not afraid to put in the effort to achieve his goals. Most recently, Brian and his wife, Sonya, were part of the winning team in the Open Team Penning at the 2012 USTPA World Championships, and Brian also claimed the win in the Quick Draw Penning class. “I’ve been to the World Show every year since 2001, and it just gets better and better. You couldn’t have asked for better cattle, and entries were up by 30%, making the purses go up as well,” Brian stated with obvious pride about the show. “I’m a very competitive person, whether it is shooting dice, coon hunting, or team penning and sorting,” Brian says, “and I love the paybacks and the competition I find at USTPA events. This year’s World Show win was made even better by my wife Sonya being on the team with me.”

20


Brian got started in horses when he was around five years old, but his parents sold out shortly thereafter, even though his Dad had always been a horse person. The bug was still there though, and Brian started back at age seventeen when his best friend, Jeremy Hughes, talked him into going team penning. “I ended up buying a cheap horse and penning every

Saturday. Sorting didn’t come to my area of North Carolina until several years later.” Within five years, Brian had upgraded horses and was attending USTPA events. He says, “I loved making the step up to the more prestigious shows. The USTPA strives to make competition fair, as well as financially beneficial to its members. National shows have $10,000 added and some regional finals have even more. Not to mention the saddles and huge prize money given at the World Show.” With all the success that the Buckner household has had over the years, Brian decided he wanted to give back to the association through volunteering. 2013 will mark his third year as part of the National Rating Committee, and second year as a director for the USTPA

(although the first year as the Director of Ratings). He has also helped with show productions, and generally anywhere else that he is needed. “I’m hoping to reflect positive and unbiased decision making when dealing with ratings,” Brian states. When a new rider goes to a regional show, they are tasked with filling out a form where they describe both their own and their horse’s ability. They then pick the rating where they think they should fall, and the director that is present at the

show must observe the team and adjust accordingly. If it is decided that the number needs to be changed, the matter is then reviewed by Brian’s team. “I pick the committee and they do the voting. We look at a lot of different things, ranging from win-to-loss ratios, the number of times you ride, your spend ratio, and much more. We’re always looking at ways to make the decision system better and as unbiased as possible in order to keep the competition fair,” says Brian. In addition to ratings, the youth organization is another area in which Brian is quite passionate. “The association will be in their hands one day,” he states when asked about the importance of

the youth within the USTPA. One of the programs that Brian is trying to improve is the youth scholarship fund, which currently gives $500 in scholarship money to deserving youth every year. “I’d really like to see the scholarship fund grow to around $10,000, which would truly make an impact on the receiving youth and bring the fund more in line with rodeo scholarships.” Brian then talks about the auction held at this year’s World Championship Show, which raised more than $60,000; over $20,000 of which came back to the association. “I would love for the auction to be an annual fundraiser with the proceeds going to the youth scholarship fund. It was a greater success than anyone would have imagined it could be, and I believe by designating the funds to the kids, it will continue to grow even larger.” Shiann Buckner, age 6, is just one of the youth that Brian has in mind when talking about growing the association and the future of penning and sorting. In her short lifespan, Shiann has already won two buckles, and started competing at just four years old. Shiann’s current mount is “Precious,” a good sorrel mare owned by Terry Brooks that the Buckner’s are in the process of buying back. “The running joke is that we want “Precious” for our “Princess!,” he says with a laugh. Brian encourages all USTPA participants to put in an effort to help the youth at the shows. “You may not realize it, but they watch every move that you, especially the professionals, make. They really want to be just like them,” he says. Brian and Sonya both make their living in the equine industry, but have found their niche more in the buying/ training/selling of their own horses versus being a typical training barn. “We ride anywhere from four to fifteen horses a day, four to five days a week,” Brian states. “Sometimes that is hard

21


due to the weather because we only have an outdoor pen. Summertime is a lot easier, and we go to third-shift when it’s cooler and there’s not as much rain.” When asked about how they practice, Brian says that while they do some sorting, the focus is mainly on keeping the horses exercised, in shape, correct, and light in the bridle. “What happens in the arena starts first at home,” he says. “You need to make sure you ask the right way when there’s no pressure, so when you ask in the heat of the moment the horse will still respond.” When looking for potential sorting and penning horses, Brian says he looks for one that is light in a snaffle bit, light off your leg, and has a lot of cow. “You’ve got to know what you’re looking at when horse shopping. If you start out with a horse that pushes too much, you can end up with a runaway. You really need to find that horse that can pick up and run one second, then shut down the next,” Brian states. Six USTPA World titles, 4 AQHA Reserve World titles, and countless money won in competition shows that Brian Buckner knows what he’s talking about when choosing horses. “As a general rule, when someone comes to me looking for a horse, I have them come down so I can watch them ride,”

22

he says. “An aggressive rider will need a laid back horse, while a laid back rider typically needs a more aggressive horse. Both sides will dull up to their strengths, and the key is balance.” The Buckner’s keep a wide selection of penning and sorting horses available and listed on their website at http://www. bucknercowhorses.com . “I think my best piece of advice is to find a horse that suits you and keep it in mint physical condition because they are professional athletes. Exercising your basic horsemanship skills at home to maintain an honest and competitive horse. Practicing wrong horsemanship can do the quickest damage to your horse’s performance.” Brian would like to urge everyone within the USTPA to promote the association to their friends and acquaintances, whether they are brand new to the sport, involved in other associations, or ready to step up from the jackpot level. “Volunteering is a great way to get involved – you get to know more people and find out what is going on within the association,” Brian says. “This is a sport that anyone from any background can come out and get involved in. There’s really no better!”


2013 Executive Committee The USTPA congratulates the following members on their election as volunteer leaders on the 2013 USTPA Executive Committee and the Board of Directors. We thank them for their willingness to serve and look forward to their participation in planning for the growth of our association.

“God’s Plans and The Elections”

by Margaret McLain Sponsored by Cowboys for Christ

Jeremiah 29:11: “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” Isaiah 41:10: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” As I write this chapter of the “Corner”, our presidential plus elections have just concluded.:: I begin with one of my morning email devotionals which said: “Roughly half of Americans woke up happy, the other half discouraged. Regardless of which category you fall into, remember that the course of your life over the next four years will be determined by the Lord, not the election.” In my prayer time, on November 7th, the first thought and verse God gave me was how to worship.:: “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks” (John 4:23). God is still in control and has a reason for everything He allows to happen. Isaiah 55:8: “’ For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,’ declares the LORD.” Are we depending too much on our political leaders instead of God?:: Shouldn’t we be about the business God has for us as Christians (if you are a Christian)? Will it take the complete destruction or near complete destruction of our free system of government for God to get the attention of all of His Creation?:: I say this because God wishes NONE to perish.:: 2 Peter 3:9b “God is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” 26

This earth and our earthly lives will not continue forever; only heaven and hell continue into eternity.:: We will all go to one place or another.:: Even science indicates that matter exists in eternity.:: Are we close to the end of this earthly phase?:: How many civilizations existed more than twohundred years without a change in the type of government?:: Why don’t they continue longer?:: Is it arrogance and leaving God’s plans, principles, and ways? I thought about some of the referenda on various state ballots and imagined the pain they caused God.:: He wants the best for us not what would harm us.:: We live among much darkness and evil as has every generation of one type or another since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden.:: I started off by indicating that half of the voting population went one way and the other half another.:: Luke 11:17 “Jesus says: ‘Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall.’” While we need to come together to have a functioning country, our principles and values can’t be compromised. Just as in team penning and sorting methods of achieving your goals may different but the general principles of the sport are the same – as fast as possible get the correct cattle in the pen or sort as many as possible before time runs out. Then I reflected on what Jesus and the early Christians endured (as well as Christians in non-Christian countries today).:: Why should Christians of today in USA be immune to persecution?:: We are to be like Jesus in every way and He endured more persecution/death than we can even imagine.:: We have been insulated from that in America but now with the rise of beliefs and ideologies opposed to Christianity as well as those wishing to eliminate us along with the Jews, hold

on tight to your faith.:: When our country was just beginning with the Revolutionary War, only 30% of those living in the colonies bravely fought against Great Britain as patriots. The rest were either neutral or English sympathizers.:: The patriots lost many battles and the conditions were horrible (lack of food, shoes, and clothing in the depths of winter) but they forged on, led by General George Washington who was seen kneeling in prayer alone in the woods only with his horse by his side.:: The tide of the war changed and the patriots won the war in miraculous ways. I close with this illustration sent to me by a friend from Cowboy Church: Years ago a farmer owned land along the Atlantic seacoast. He constantly advertised for hired hands. Most people were reluctant to work on farms along the Atlantic. They dreaded the awful storms that raged across the Atlantic, wreaking havoc on the buildings and crops. As the farmer interviewed applicants for the job, he received a steady stream of refusals. Finally, a short, thin man, well past middle age, approached the farmer. Are you a good farmhand?" the farmer asked him. Well, I can sleep when the wind blows," answered the little man. Although puzzled by this answer, the farmer, desperate for help, hired him.:: The little man worked well around the farm, busy from dawn to dusk, and the farmer felt satisfied with the man's work. Then one night the wind howled loudly in from offshore. Jumping out of bed, the farmer grabbed a lantern and rushed next door to the hired hand's sleeping quarters. He shook the little man and yelled, "Get up!:: A storm is coming! Tie things down before they blow away!" The little man rolled over in bed and said firmly, "No


sir. I told you, I can sleep when the wind blows." Enraged by the response, the farmer was tempted to fire him on the spot. Instead, he hurried outside to prepare for the storm. To his amazement, he discovered that all of the haystacks had been covered with tarpaulins.:: The cows were in the barn, the chickens were in the coops, and the doors were barred. The shutters were tightly secured.:: Everything was tied down. Nothing could blow away.

The farmer then understood what his hired hand meant, so he returned to his bed to also sleep while the wind blew.:: MORAL: When you're prepared, spiritually, mentally, and physically, you have nothing to fear. Can you sleep when the wind blows through your life? The hired hand in the story was able to sleep because he had secured the farm against the storm. We, as believers in Christ, secure
