Oregon bareback rider has plenty of fond memories of Lynden rodeos Brian Bain looks to put injury woes behind him By Brian Bain’s own admission, the Lynden PRCA Rodeo has been good to him. With a placing in 2012 and a bareback riding title here in 2011, there’s no denying that fact. Bain just hopes 2013’s event can live up to his past success.    So far, though, the 2013 season hasn’t gone as he would have liked. Last December, after placing in three rounds of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, Bain broke his hand and tore a ligament in the 10th round. The hand took four months to heal and now “I need to win as

much money as possible in the next two months,” he said.    A typical year has Bain traveling from his hometown of Culver, Ore., to roughly 100 rodeos throughout the United States and Canada. In the two weeks leading up to the Lynden event, Bain was scheduled to compete in 12 different rodeos. But all that travel has paid off for the bareback specialist, who pulled in over $85,000 in earnings in 2012.    Amidst the now-busy schedule for the 31-year-old, coming to Lynden serves as a highlight (and not just because of the success).    “They have really good stock there and the committee goes above and be-

yond to make sure you are accommodated for,” Bain said. “Us rodeo cowboys that go to quite a few rodeos a year really appreciate that. A lot of committees could care less, but Lynden is like a family. They are all really nice.”    A six-year veteran of the PRCA, Bain came to bareback riding at age 22, rather late in life for a bareback rider. Growing up around ranches and rodeos in eastern Oregon, Bain team roped through high schools — something he says he still does for fun — and didn’t jump on bucking horses until later.    “The bareback riding, everybody thinks it is just sitting up there and make eight (seconds) or whatever,” he said.


Lynden Tribune | Wednesday, August 21, 2013 | Ferndale Record

“There is a lot of technicality.”    Bareback is scored 50 for the rider and 50 for the horse, requiring the rider to be in control of the horse, but still show “exposure” and push the horse a little more. “In bull riding, the bull bucks hard and the guy rides,” Bain said. “The bareback and bronc riding is more technical with spur technique. You want a horse that bucks hard, but one you are able to spur and show your technical ability and own riding ability.”    In 2011, Bain won the Lynden event by scoring 86 out of the possible 100 points.    A strong draw for the riders in Lynden is the stock, Bain said. With different stock contractors all over the nation, you’re never quite sure who you will get, although occasionally — especially in Texas, Bain said — a rider can draw a horse for a second or third time, which allows them to learn a pattern. No matter the horse, though, Bain said a horse that bucks strong and is hard to ride or spur proves difficult, but you want one “who looks like they buck real hard, but are easy to spur.”     • 2013 highlight: Co-champion at the Old Fort Days Rodeo (Fort Smith, Ark.).

    • 2012: Placed in three rounds of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Won the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo (Oklahoma City, Okla.); the Sisters (Ore.) Rodeo; the World’s Oldest Rodeo (Prescott, Ariz.); the Oakdale (Calif.) Saddle Club Rodeo; the Eagle (Colo.) County Fair & Rodeo, and the Othello (Wash.) PRCA Rodeo. Cochampion at the California Rodeo Salinas and the Livingston (Mont.) Roundup.     • 2011: Placed in three rounds of the Wrangler NFR before being injured and missing the last three rounds due to a concussion and dislocated shoulder. Won the Ram Columbia River Circuit Finals Rodeo (Redmond, Ore.); the Snake River Stampede (Nampa, Idaho); the Parada del Sol (Scottsdale, Ariz.); the Las Vegas Helldorado Days Rodeo and the Wainwright (Alberta) Stampede. Cochampion at the Lynden (Wash.) PRCA Rodeo and the Lea County Fair & PRCA Rodeo (Lovington, N.M.). Finished ninth in the world standings with $108,200.     • 2010: Won the Thunder Mountain ProRodeo (Longview, Wash.) and the North Idaho Fair & Rodeo (Coeur d’Alene, Idaho). Finished 45th in the world standings with $19,889. — Tim Newcomb

2012 Rodeo Clown of the Year in Lynden Justin Rumford grew up in rodeo in Oklahoma, became rodeo clown in 2010 LYNDEN — The 2012 PRCA Rodeo Clown of the Year will make an appearance at Lynden’s PRCA rodeo this year.    Oklahoma’s Justin Rumford, 33, has a number of specialty acts to his name, including “fat guy on a bucking horse,” “gorilla hunter,” “mini motorcycle jump” and “cheerleader.”    Rumford has a background in rodeo, having grown up around rodeos with his family, which works in the stock contracting business. His grandfather, Floyd Rumford, started the Rumford Rodeo Company in the 1950s, running the company himself until his death in 1998. Justin’s father, Bronc, took over operating the company. He raises rodeo stock in Abbyville, Kansas.

He qualified for the College National Finals Rodeo in steer wrestling and saddle bronc riding for two of the four years he was in college. He filled in for a friend as a barrel man for a rodeo in Kansas back in 2010, and became an official rodeo entertainer just one month later.    His wife, Ashley, a former Miss Rodeo Oklahoma, travels with him to rodeos everywhere.   Rumford was part of 127 performances in 2012, all over the country. — Brent Lindquist

Lauren Wilfer promotes as Miss Lynden Rodeo Alaska native, with horses in her background, is an engineer by profession    Lauren Wilfer, 23, had never ridden in a rodeo before she ran for Miss Lynden Rodeo and was crowned the 2013 queen.    Instead, she watched the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas on television every year.    “Vegas goes cowboy for two weeks, it’s so fun,” Lauren said. She knows that because she got to see the National Finals Rodeo in person in December 2012 before she was crowned queen.    Since the start of the year Lauren has been on tour representing Lynden at rodeos across the state, leaving tracks and enticing fans to come to the rodeo in Lynden.

   She is also making more local appearances. In the last four months, Lauren has been at a Grange breakfast, the Whatcom County Youth Fair, the Herman Miller 4-H Auction and the Miss Whatcom County Pageant. She rode in Sedro-Woolley’s Fourth of July rodeo. In British Columbia, she made laps around Cloverdale’s arena in May and was in Abbotsford two weeks ago.    Lauren describes rodeo queens as the spokespersons of rodeo, as some cowboys are men of few words.    “My job is to fill every seat in the stands of the Lynden Rodeo,” Lauren said, patting her horse Opal’s velvet nose.    She has trotted across Washington attending events such as the Miss Spokane Interstate Rodeo Pageant, and she will be going to the rodeo there in September. She could be seen riding in the Northwest Washington Fair and, of course, she is prominent in the Lynden PRCA Rodeo itself. Her queenly duties

will wrap up on Dec. 31; a pageant to choose her replacement is in November.    Lauren has surprised herself with the impression she can make on children as the rodeo queen.    “Kids see the rodeo queen run around the arena and they instantly want

PRCA LYNDEN RODEO to be her,” she said. “I’ve never been part of that before.”    Seeing young kids get involved with the rodeo and encouraging them to work with the animals is special to Lauren. “It’s so easy for youth to be sucked into technology and not be out in the world, interacting with people and being social,” she said.    Growing up in Fairbanks, Alaska, Lauren moved to Bellingham simply to go to Western Washington University. Graduating with a bachelor’s degree in engineering technology, she was hired straight out of college as a manufacturing engineer by Janicki Industries in Sedro-Woolley.    Lauren doesn’t really stop to have hobbies — she said she loves photography and scrapbooking, but who has the time?    She stays busy riding her 6-year-old quarter horse, Opal. With silvery hairs peppering her brown coat, Opal is shaded black on the tips of the ears, mane and tail — the textbook definition of a bay roan shade. Quarter horses are sprinters, bred to race the quarter-

Lynden Tribune | Wednesday, August 21, 2013 | Ferndale Record mile like lightning.    “We’ve actually never run the quarter-mile,” Lauren said. But Opal treads the track like a speed racer.    She has three horses here in Whatcom County and her family has three more in Alaska.    Holding steadfast to her duty as rodeo queen, Lauren earnestly invites all of Whatcom County to join her at the ninth Lynden PRCA Rodeo at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 23-24, at the fairgrounds. The second evening is Tough Enough to Wear Pink night, celebrating the effort that cowboys have made to raise money toward a cure for breast cancer. All the money raised at the local rodeo on Saturday night goes to PeaceHealth St. Joseph’s Cancer Center in Bellingham.    Lauren tells the folks of Lynden to expect an incredible show.    Remembering when Lynden’s Rodeo was specially recognized on the circuit in 2008, she said, “I think it’s about time that we were voted the Best Small Rodeo again.” — Annika Wolters

The eight rodeo events to be won   PRCA Rodeo today involves these eight events: Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Bull Riding, Barrel Racing, Steer Roping, Team Roping, Tie-Down Roping and Steer Wrestling. In addition, All-Around is a special prize for those cowboys who compete in more than one event.    Now in its ninth year, the Lynden PRCA Rodeo does not do Steer Roping competition.    Here is a description of what’s involved in each event:

Bareback Riding Ever ridden a jackhammer with one hand? That’s what this event has been compared to. Riders hold onto a leather rigging that’s secured with a cinch and aim for a wild, yet controlled ride with points earned by a back-and-forth spurring motion as the horse bucks. Golden Rule: Same as saddle-bronc riding. Also, no touching with the cowboy’s free hand; any illegal contact results in no score.

Steer Wrestling Ever had the wits to slide off a horse galloping at full speed and take down a 600-pound steer by the horns? These guys do. Stop the clock in 4 seconds or less, and you’ll earn a nice check. Golden Rule: As in all roping events, the animal gets a head start. Too much horsepower too soon will break the barrier and result in a 10-second penalty.

Tie-Down Roping A cowboy throws his loop and catches a calf, then dismounts, sprints to the calf, and flanks it to the ground. As quickly as possible, he then ties any three legs together with a piggin’ string and throws his hands in the air to stop the clock. Golden Rule: Tie fast, and tie tightly. The calf has six seconds to stay put after the run. If it breaks free, then it’s no time (and no cash, either).

Saddle Bronc Riding Derived from a cowboy’s task of breaking

a wild horse, this is rodeo’s classic event — just look at the PRCA logo. Riders hold onto the rein, remain firmly seated and try to synchronize their spurs to the movements of the horse to achieve the highest score. Golden Rule: Riders must mark out, or touch both heels above the horse’s shoulders.

Team Roping Let’s play catch, partner. Two ropers, a header and a heeler, take off after a steer. After the header lassoes around the horns, he turns the steer so the heeler can rope both hind legs and complete the run. The world record is 3.3 seconds or faster than it took to read this. Golden Rule: This event depends on two solid catches — the first around the head or horns and the second around both hind legs. Anything else, and you pay a price.

Barrel Racing Horsepower in its truest sense. Time is the only thing that matters here, and these cowgirls and their horses have got-


ten so fast that champions are often decided by hundredths of a second. Golden Rule: Don’t topple a barrel, which results in a five-second penalty.

Bull Riding Maybe it was a bet. Maybe it was a dare. Nobody knows for sure which cowboys was crazy enough to ride a bucking bull for the first time. Today, there’s a reason it’s the last event at a rodeo. The sheer excitement of 150-pound man vs. 1,500-pound beast makes this the crowd favorite, hands down. Golden Rule: Just hang on, but roughstock rules apply — hold on with one hand only. And as with all roughstock events, half the score comes from the animal.

All-Around Many cowboys compete in more than one event at a rodeo. A special prize may be awarded to the top money-earner among all cowboys entered in more than one event. The All-Around Champion is a prestigious award.

We are proud supporters of the 2013 Northwest Washington Fair!

Trevor Brazile rides to pinnacle of rodeo success, hits Lynden again His roots are in Texas family life off the circuit    The rodeo world has never known a cowboy like Trevor Brazile. He is a true working cowboy and an all-around phenomenon with a rope. He’s the richest cowboy in the history of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, and still he is constantly upping his game in an effort to improve the sport of professional rodeo. But who is Trevor Brazile? Growing Up    Trevor Brazile was born on Nov. 16, 1976, in the sprawling town of Amarillo, Texas. A cowboy through and through, his father Jimmy stated that he knew Trevor would be a champion one day. A four-time steer roping national finalist himself, Jimmy encouraged Trevor to hone his roping skills from a very young age.    Trevor was taught to be an all-around ranch hand, learning how to rope, tie down calves and catch speeding steers with speed and proficiency. This early training helped him immensely as he entered the rodeo arena, and he excelled in tie-down roping, steer roping and team roping — sports he still participates in.    His family didn’t have money to waste on entries without earning a paycheck, and Trevor’s competitive spirit helped keep him in the red. Hall of Fame team roper Roy Cooper took young Trevor under his wing, instilling in him the confidence and determination that has made him such a phenomenal success. Rodeo Success    Trevor Brazile is the richest cowboy in the sport of professional rodeo. With winnings eclipsing the $3.5 million mark, he has won more money than any cowboy in history.    He has 10 All-Around world titles under his belt, and more than 17 individual world championships in team roping, tie-down roping and steer roping. Trevor

Trevor Brazile comes to Lynden this year with his wife, Shada, and their children Treston and Stella. Shada also will compete in women’s barrel racing. They make their home near Decatur, Texas. travels to more than 70 rodeos in an average year, racking up hundreds of thousands of dollars in earnings before the National Finals Rodeo.    However, this success hasn’t always been a walk in the park. Trevor’s early years were marred by few wins and low payouts, and he had to earn his way to the top with a flood of blood, sweat and tears.    Brazile won his 10th All-Around world championship at the 2012 National Finals Rodeo, pushing him past Jim

Shoulders for the most All-Around titles in PRCA history. Life Off the Circuit    Trevor is just as busy at home as he is on the road. He owns a ranch in Decatur, Texas that he shares with his wife, Shada, and his son and daughter, Treston and Stella.    Shada is a former model, working for high-profile rodeo brands including Wrangler, Cruel Girl and Cripple Creek Continued on C18

Trevor Brazile has become rodeo’s master with the rope, competing in tie-down roping, steer roping and team roping (pictured here as the header). Last December at National Finals Rodeo, Brazile earned his 10th AllAround world championship and 17th individual title. Continued from C16 clothing companies. Shada and the children spend much of their time on the road with Trevor, traveling around North America and taking in the world, one rodeo at a time.    When the Brazile family is not on the road, they run an extremely successful ranch operation, producing some of the most sought-after American quarter horses in the rodeo world. Trevor also endorses a variety of companies including trailer companies, clothing lines and rodeo gear. Shada is developing a line of children’s clothing, and her children often model the clothes, which helps keep everyone in the family involved.    What about a life after rodeo? Trevor says his years on the

circuit aren’t limited by his health or lack of desire, but by his children. “Wanting to spend time with my family” is what’s going to eventually lead him to retirement, Trevor said. Spending time as a family has always been a focal point in the Brazile household, and watching his children grow and flourish is the only thing more important than winning.    For now, however, retirement is a distant dream and Brazile has set his sights past that record 10th All-Around championship into 2013. — adapted from, 2012

Make-Up Face: Sending them to the dirt World-class bucking horse Make-Up Face set to return to Lynden When participants in the 2013 Lynden Rodeo compete in the bareback competition, things won’t be made easy for them. For those riders who think lasting the eight seconds won’t be a difficult task, they’re surely mistaken.    That’s because top 2012 bucking horse Make-Up Face will return to Lynden for a second year, but this time the horse is much stronger and more mature.    The stock supplier is C5 Rodeo of Alberta, Canada.    Manager Dale Kling, who also raised Make-Up Face, said the horse has had a great 2013 season thus far and he expects him to be impressive at this year’s Lynden Rodeo as well.   “He’s had a phenomenal year,” Kling said of Make-Up Face. “The horse has been putting cowboys in the dirt all year. Of the eight riders who have gotten on him, only two have been able to ride him for the eight seconds. The rest have hit the ground and hit the ground hard. Some of these guys are the best riders in the world too.”    Last season, one rider did have

a memorable ride on Make-Up Face, horse is among the top bucking horses in though. Justin McDaniel broke the Lyn- the world. den arena record with a 91-point ride.    “I feel very fortunate to be along for    “It can be done,” Kling said. “Last every step of the way,” Kling said. “He’s year, they set the record on him and that among the top in the world this year. I say rider was talented. A lot of people are go- it because I’m proud of the horse, but he ing to try and do the same this year, but should walk away with the top spot this Make-Up Face is bigger and stronger this year. We’re sitting right where we want to time around. be right now.”    “When riders draw a horse like that — Braulio Perez in the rodeo, it’s easily one of the biggest matchups of the year for them. They can’t rollercoast a winning ride on him. It’s either money or mud.”    M a k e Up Face is owned by Bar C5 Rodeo and has traveled to several different competitions this spring and summer. Bucking horse Make-Up Face was named tops in PRCA Kling said the Bareback Riding in 2012.
