Competitorial

T

he world is just a little bit a lesser place this week. This comes as news that one of the stalwarts of team roping in New Mexico lost his battle against cancer. Crespin Padilla left us this week, and NONE of us are better for it. I have particular disdain for those who try to elevate someone after they’ve gone. The insincerity of it seems insulting to those who know the truth, and I think disrespects the memory of the person who has passed. In short, if you’ve spent your life walking around being a dirty, rotten, bastard… dying doesn’t change the facts. In those cases, I think it’s just best not to say much at all. That’s not the case concerning Crespin… Over the past couple of days I’ve spent a good deal of time thinking about Crespin, and the one thing that always happens is that I find myself smiling a lot… even fighting back a little chuckle. Crespin Padilla was truly one of a kind. No doubt, everyone who knew him has a Crespin story that makes them laugh. His personality, combined with the simplistic way he approached everything in his life was enviable. Though simplistic he may have been, simple he was not. Inside that affable, sometimes seemingly confused exterior, was a man that I knew to be not only deep of thought, but remarkably intelligent. Knowing he could usually

catch me in the predawn hours at my desk, he would often call me and comment on the latest “Competitorial.” Sometimes he would tell me I was full of it, but most of the time he would start the conversation the same way, “Robin Davis…. (long pause)… I just nearly fell out of my chair laughing.” …and off he would go from there. Not more than a month ago, I got the last call like that from him, “You hit it dead on the nose!” his first words screamed through the phone. I’m going to miss those conversations. We would talk on a variety of subjects, some best not repeated, and you’d better know what you were talking about and you better be able to make a sound argument if it was contrary to his. I doubt he had much formal education, but he was not only intelligent, he was articulate and informed as well. I have no idea how many years Crespin and his “Oasis Productions” produced team roping events around the state of New Mexico. Certainly as long as I can remember, maybe 30 years or more… and I’ll venture a bet that in all that time he never had more than about five sets of steers. No question about it, Crespin had a way of making steers last. Though I didn’t make a lot of his ropings, I’m pretty damned sure I had the pleasure of roping the same steer four continued on page 49

T

he USTRC once again rolled into New Mexico for the annual spring team roping, the New Mexico Championships. The roping was showcased in Clovis, New Mexico over the weekend of April 5-7, 3013. Ropers from all across the state, as well other nearby states took full advantage of the 2/3 cash payout format of the USTRC. The payouts began in the Open and worked through the #8 Pick Draw roping throughout the weekend. The team of Casey Hatley and Cody Hintz were the first team to hit the pay window on Friday. They home-state team took home the Open championship after cleaning up four head in 38.16 seconds. The win earned them $2,860 in cash, $3,000 in in USTRC Flex Earnings and trophy Gist bits. The #15 roping was next on the agenda and after four rounds the Texas team of Tyler Riggan and Scotty Raines were sitting at the top of the Average race. Their smooth 27.74 second average earned them $4,334 in cash, $3,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings they can use later on down the road this season and a pair of trophy Gist bits. It was another New Mexico team that won the #13 roping. Lance Barka and Dominic Silva who came from the middle Rio Grande valley roped four head in 33.17 seconds for the championship. They won the biggest payout of the day, earning $6,046 in cash, trophy Gist bits and $3,000 in

USTRC Flex Earnings. Wrapping up the action on Friday were those entered in the #12 roping. In the end it was a husband and wife team who came over from Amarillo, Texas who took home the championship. Joanie and Billy Ivy roped four head in 34.24 seconds and took back to Texas $5,430 in cash, $3,000 in Flex Earnings and the first pair of trophy Martin saddles awarded at the New Mexico Championships. Saturday kicked off with the #12 Gold Plus roping. The team who finished on top did it in style, roping four head in 39.16 seconds. Paul Rush from Cantullio, Texas and Rex Hawkins from Santa Teresa, New Mexico won the #12 Gold Plus for a great payday that included $3,114 in cash, trophy Gist buckles and $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. As the roping began with a blast of

talent, the day continued with lots of great team roping action in the #11 roping. The team of John Garcia and Adam Esquibel from northern New Mexico roped four head in 35.13 seconds to take the win. They earned $7,194 in cash, trophy Martin saddles and $3,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. As the day ended, so did the day’s large payouts. The #10 roping paid the team of Drew Turner from Sudan, Texas and Brett Smith from Caballo, New Mexico $7,724 in cash. They took home the handsome payout after roping four head in 31.12 seconds. In addition to the cash payout, the duo also earned $3,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings and trophy Martin saddles. The final day of the New Mexico Championship began with the #10 Gold Plus roping and again the day began with a Texas team taking home the championship. The team of Charlie Mathis and Will Romero roped four head in 42.98 second to win $3,486 in cash, $6,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings and trophy Gist buckles. Cesar Melendez from Midland, Texas and Rene Cervantes from Jal, Tyler Riggan (Lubbock, TX) / Scotty Raines (Gardendale, TX), 27.74 on 4, $4,334 and $3,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings New Mexico claimed

their share of fame in the #9 roping. They hooked and lined out four head in 33.63 seconds to walk away with $7,492 in cash, trophy Martin saddles and $3,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings. Making the final walk to the pay window for the first place prize payout at this year’s New Mexico Championship was the team of 16-year-old Tyler Plant and a little older roper, Moises Flores. The New Mexico team roped four head in 32.55 seconds and helped themselves to $3,222 in cash, $3,000 in USTRC Flex Earnings and trophy Gist buckles. The New Mexico Championships has been a great tradition among ropers for many years. The USTRC proudly produces this event and accommodates the number of ropers who continue to compete at this event each year. The great facility in Clovis, New Mexico and the big payouts this event produces continues to make this an exciting event ropers look forward to attending for many years to come.

You get the same practice as with live calves but not the livestock up-keep and cost. The Sparky calf tie down will give your horse a jerk when it is roped and releases from the sled. You can run your rope, pick up the calf and tie it. The legs are spring loaded for gathering them. The front left leg has a loose hock joint to press straight for tying. The calf body is 75 Ibs. and it comes with a bladder for more body weight. Body and legs are made from a plastic rubber material that is flexible and very durable.

Erickson Puts On Record-Breaking Show at RNCFR Courtesy of PRCA ProRodeo

hane Erickson showed up at the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo as a bit of an unknown quantity. That’s no longer the case. The Columbia River Circuit cowboy stood tall when the spotlight shined brightest and walked off with all-around honors, the team roping title (with Jade Corkill) and a prize money total of $25,502 that broke both the RNCFR all-around and overall records. It was nearly a $3,000 improvement on the overall record of $22,598, set by J.W. Harris in the 2009 bull riding competition. “It’s been a great week, kind of a dream come true, especially to win as much as I did,” said the soft-spoken, 32-year-old Erickson. “A lot of people don’t really know me, so I wanted to do well here this week.” Erickson also earned third-place money in the tie-down roping while impressing fans and announcers with his skill and professionalism in both events. That didn’t change Erickson’s humble demeanor, though. “I had the best heeler in the world,” he said, “so I just had to do my job.” Corkill, the reigning world champion heeler, was competing at the RNCFR for the first time.

Everett Shaw First on the List

Story and Photos Compliments of Jim Olson

O

n October 30, 1936, sixty-one men signed a simple piece of paper which turned out to be a historic document and a cornerstone in the foundation of professional rodeo. The document simply states: “For the Boston Show, we the undersigned demand that the Purses be doubled and the Entrance Fees added in each and every event. Any Contestant failing to sign the Petition will not be permitted to contest, by order of the undersigned.” After presenting the signed petition to Col. William T. Johnson (producer/stock contractor for the Boston Garden Show), he told them, “Strike and be damned.” Those men did indeed strike and refused to compete at that night’s performance—hoping their demands were met. While it was a little shaky at times, the cowboys and Johnson finally got together on an agreement. Shortly thereafter, the cowboys gathered around and formed the Cowboy Turtles Association (predecessor to the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association or PRCA). The rest, as they say, is history. The cowboys originally called themselves “Turtles” because they had been slow to stick their necks out and get started. Someone had to be first even to “stick their neck out” and sign

the petition, that fateful October day in Boston, before others would follow. The man whose name appears very first on that list is none other than Everett Shaw. Born June 7, 1908, in Hogshooter Creek, Oklahoma, Shaw was known as one of the best single steer roping competitors in rodeo history. He started out however, as primarily a calf roper in 1926 at Nowata, Oklahoma at his first rodeo. His first major win at the professional level came in the calf roping event at Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1932. He won Madison Square Garden, considered the World Championship rodeo of the day, in ’34, ‘36 and ’39 as a calf roper. Throughout the late 1920s till the early 1940s, he competed in both calf roping and steer roping. Sometime in the early ‘40s, however, Shaw decided to focus mainly on single steer roping. At an age when many professional ropers are winding down their careers, Shaw who was in his late thirties hit full stride. It began with the win

of his first world title, the 1945 single steer roping title. He won six world steer roping world titles over a seventeen-year period thereafter (1945, ‘46, ‘48, ‘51, ‘59 and ‘62) and during a period from 1945 to ’65 he finished in the top five in the world fifteen out of twenty-one seasons. From the time he entered his first rodeo to the last world title was a whopping thirty-six years! He remained competitive at the professional level for over forty years! Shaw even competed actively until eventually winning his last roping event in 1977 at the age of sixtynine! He then retired to his ranch near Stonewall, Oklahoma. In an old newspaper interview, when asked about his longevity in rodeo, Everett said, “...once saw a rodeo and got the bug. Thirty years later—I still got the bug.” Shaw won most of his championships on a bay horse named Peanuts who was Hancock bred. Wellknown for his horse training abilities, Everett had been hired by Fred Lowry to train the horse. However, he was so


THE

ALL-AROUND

impressed with Peanuts that he bought the horse instead. He paid $2,000 for the horse, an amazing sum of money back then. It was not money ill-spent however as Peanuts and Shaw roped together for about sixteen years and the duo won most of Shaw’s steer roping titles together. Peanuts is now honored at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum on the Trail of Great Cow Ponies. So, how did Everett’s name happen first on that historic strike document from 1936? Was he the first to stand up, the most vocal and passionate about what it represented? Probably not. Was he arbitrarily picked by accident because he was close at hand once it was typed up? Maybe. There is only one man left alive at the time of this writing who was actually there when it all happened. When asked what he remembered about Everett signing the document, he couldn’t recall the exact details, but Louis Bowman did say, “Everett was one hell of a roper and horse trainer. He

was quiet and unassuming in his leadership role. He led by example and was a great representative of rodeo.” While we may never know for sure how he became first on the list, what we do know is that Everett Shaw was a solid supporter of rodeo and its fledgling organization. He signed up with the “Turtles” and was given card number seven, indicating he was the seventh member of what is now the PRCA. He also was the very first calf roping director for the organization and was on the executive committee. In all, Shaw spent twenty years on the board of the Turtles and its successor, the Rodeo Cowboys Association (RCA), which later became the PRCA. In fact, when the Turtles reorganized in 1945 to become the RCA, it is said that Shaw played a major part in the event. Later in life, he was in high demand as a rodeo judge because of his honest ways. He even judged the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) while it was in Oklahoma City. Everett Shaw married Nell Truitt on

27

February 13, 1936. That act made him a brother in-law to none other than Dick Truitt, the 1939 World Champion Steer Roper who was a mentor to Shaw on the rodeo circuit in his early days. Eventually, the Shaws had a daughter, Mary Sue Shaw, who married another rodeo cowboy, Sonny Worrell of Kansas in 1957. All three men are now in the Rodeo Hall of Fame at Oklahoma City. Shaw and his extended family represent quite a family of rodeo cowboys! In May 1979 the Oklahoma State Senate passed a special resolution commending Everett as one of Oklahoma’s greatest cowboys. He had become a living legend. Shaw was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in 1979, and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1980. On November 11, 1979, the great Everett Shaw passed away due to complications from heart surgery. Jim Olson (c) 2013 www.JimOlsonAuthor.com

WSTR BREAKING NEWS - Heartland Splits & Offers Vegas Quality to All Aggregate Winners Over the past three years, the Heartland Finale has grown to be one of the largest, highest paying events in the United States. Scheduled over Memorial weekend, which coincides with the Legacy entry deadline for the Las Vegas Finale, WSTR has recognized the financial difficulty to pay for both events at the same time. As a result, this time conflict has put some ropers into a situation of having to choose between entering Heartland or the WSTR Finale. Essentially, WSTR has been in competition with itself. This event is too great to limit its potential. Therefore, as a result of the growing concerns over the financial issues involved with entering high dollar roping this time of year, the five separate divisions of Heartland will be produced in different locations. These single Heartland Division Finales will be scattered across a fivemonth period in the central part of the country, and each division will be held in conjunction with a regularly scheduled World Series qualifier. These ropings will be $500 per roper, enter twice, with full gorounds, a full prize line, and some type of consolation. Entries will be onsite, but draw advantage will be provided to ropers who pre-enter. The Lazy E Arena will still be the WSTR qualifier venue over Memorial weekend with the added #13 Heartland Finale. The other dates are listed below. Watch for the roping advertisements for more information.

T

he National All Amateurs is packing up and heading north for the summer leaving behind a whole lot of grateful ropers who had a chance to compete at some of the best team ropings in Arizona. Ty Yost and his crew all but said adios to the sunshine state over the past month with several great events including the Legends Only Finals, A Yost Saturday event, The Ladies and Gentleman’s Roping and the third annual Last Hurrah roping. NAATR events and Ty Yost are happy with what they accomplished this season and look forward to coming back after the 2013 Western Tour. “I enjoy all of the great moments we had a chance to share with the ropers this past season,” Said Yost “Awarded over $1-mil in payouts to amateur ropers, handing a girl her first trophy buckle, the truck keys to a young man or watching a roper tear up due to all of his hard work that came together at a roping is what it is all about. That is what I enjoy! I enjoy providing the amateur ropers the opportunity to enjoy large payout events.” Until Late next fall, The NAATR will be in the northern area of the country allowing ropers there a chance to win big money and enjoy the professional production only Ty Yost and the NAATR events can provide.

ACTRA National News

W

ith a lot of the great new programs planned for the 2013 Wrangler/Professional’s Choice National Finals, you would think, how could it get much better? Well read on. First, a new Sponsor that ACTRA is very excited about is a Chute and Arena Sponsor, Red River Arenas from Coleman, Texas. President Justin Kimmel put together a great Sponsorship program, which will see his equipment in both arenas in Reno this October. Red River has been in business over 30 years and is very well known in the Mid-west. Justin wanted to expand his market into the West and felt ACTRA would be a good partner in achieving his goal. Not only will you see Red River Equipment in use in Reno, Justin added two more years of great opportunities to ACTRA members as well as price incentives to the membership. As an added bonus

ACTRA will be listed on “Cowboy Event Finder” this website makes it easy for ropers to not only see what roping events are in a specific geographic area, but many other equestrian events. Just search for Cowboy Event Finder on the web. Be sure and go to www.redriverarenas.com for some great bargains on arenas.

Professional’s Choice expands their ACTRA Sponsorship As one of the oldest and most successful partnerships, Professional’s Choice was looking for a way to market one of their newest product lines of bits and spurs. ACTRA being one of their great success stories, they felt we would be a perfect way to show off their newest product line. So after Lisa Lowry, Executive Sales Coordinator, outlined a great Sponsorship Program, the deal was struck and Professional’s Choice is the

ALL-AROUND

new “Official Bit and Spur Sponsor of ACTRA.” The ACTRA Nationals Awards are being designed and are going to be awesome. ACTRA and P/C are working together to get trophy bits and spurs available for Chapter and Arena Operators very soon.

New Hotel Sponsor The Eldorado Hotel and Casino will join Circus Circus and the Silver Legacy as host hotels at this year’s National Finals. ACTRA feels this will give our members another great choice and keep everyone under one roof. We ask all our members that you consider these and all our other great sponsors when you are considering a product or service. When you support these sponsors you are investing in your association, ACTRA. Check out the website for the most up to date information on what’s going on in ACTRA www.actra.org .

4th Annual Mike White Pasture Roping Rain, Hail, and Mud Add To Excitement of Pasture Roping

P

asture roping is certainly not for the faint of heart. Rather than the tightly controlled conditions of an arena, the Mike White Pasture Roping is held in a 35-acre pasture with a 100' head start for the steer. It can, and usually does, get a little “Western.” “I always wanted to have a pasture roping,” explains retired PBR bull rider, Mike White. “It levels the playing field and gives guys a chance to be competitive against open ropers. You really have to be able to ride your horse and handle a cow in the field. In the pasture a steer can really duck and dive. It’s very entertaining to watch.” Each year, on Easter weekend, Mike and Hannah White have friends and family who come from as far as North Carolina and Lake Charles, Louisiana, to help out with this growing event. Every dollar of the proceeds is donated to benefit children in need. This year proceeds were donated to Ropin' Dreams, a non-profit organization that helps make dreams come true for seriously ill children. The inspiration for this event occurred in 2004. There was a child in St. Judes Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, who wanted to meet the famous bull rider, Mike White. The PBR asked Mike if he would go visit, so Mike and Hannah planned the trip and envisioned visiting for less than an hour. “I didn’t really plan on staying long, it’s hard to spend a lot of time with someone you don’t know,” says White. “I left after three and a half hours. We played bucking bulls on his bed all afternoon. I left there a changed person. It totally changed the way I looked at life. I’ve always said ‘If you think you’re a man who won’t cry, visit a children’s hospital’. “I’ve been very blessed. My kids are healthy and I’ve had a great career. This benefit is something that needs to be done. We raise money for the kids who don’t have our opportunities in life.” The Mike White Pasture Roping is a family event where folks camp out, swap stories and enjoy the many food vendors. There’s goat roping for the kids, and an Easter egg hunt with prizes that include two four-wheelers and two battery operated cars for the little tykes.

Mike White awarding 2013 Champions, Dustin Morgan and Todd Trammell with Coats saddles

Tyler Wade was the recipient of the Hard Luck prize, a rifle from Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

Friday morning started with the AllGirl pasture roping where the steers have a fifty-foot head start. Forty-three teams competed with Amy Fathruckner and Jayme Marcrum emerging the winners with a time of 43.42-seconds on twohead, earning $761 each, Roper Buckles and Fast Back jackets. Second place was Hannah White and Whitney Desalvo with a time of 19.12 on one head and earning $456 each. Third place was Robin Benson and Jayme Marcrum, 21.49 on one head, earning $304 each. Friday evening the action moved to Texarkana for the Mike White Invitational PBR Bull Riding followed by a concert by Bart Crow. On Saturday morning, the Open to the World Pasture Roping, was postponed for close to an hour due to rain. 290 teams competed in the three-head progressive

roping for $150 per team entry fees. Half way through the first round, ropers and spectators took cover due to a severe weather alert. Soon after, rain, straightline winds, and hail prevailed for over fifteen minutes. As soon as the sky cleared the roping resumed. The cowboys thought it was awesome and the soupy conditions made for some good watching. Todd Trammell and Dustin Morgan were the 2013 champions with a time of 43.26 on three head. The pair each earned $5,041 and a Coats saddle. The remaining average winners were as follows: 2. Kipp Harrell/Spencer Mitchell, 44.11, $3,361 ea; 3. Jeff Hilton/Tommy Zuniga 44.18, $2,598; 4. Joel Bach/Tommy Zuniga 44.19, $1,833; 5. Waylon Davis/Dakota Kirchenschlager 44.44, $1,375; 6. Tee Luttrell/Jody Padilla 45.86, $1,069. Tyler Wade earned the top “hard luck” prize of a rifle from Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Dakota Kirchenschlager was second in the hard luck division and won a pair of spurs. “Our whole family, plus many friends, help out. Without such a giving family and great friends this event would not be what it is today. We have come a long way in the last four years,” says Wendy LaVergne, Mike’s sister and Director of the event. “Giving back is what God has called each and every one of us to do. We are very blessed to be a part of all these children’s lives.” The Mike White Roping team would like to thank the following sponsors: Fast Back Ropes, Wrangler, Bloomer Trailers, Johnny On the Spot, State Bank of DeKalb, USTRC, Reliance Ranches, Lone Star Ag Credit, DeKalb Chamber of Commerce, Priefert Ranch, Bates Funeral Home, Tucker Feed, Golden Oil, Front Street Junction, Southwest Arkansas Equipment, United Country, Livestock Nutrition Center, Wilcox Water, Elliott Dodge Ford, Texar FCU, Double K Farm Equipment, Backus – B Ranch, DeKalb Physicians Clinic, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, DeKalb Industrial Foundation, Bowie County Equipment, FlatCreek Timberland Logging.

Rookie Wins Ty Murray Invitational PBR Event

F

ive of the 10 men who entered the Built Ford Tough Championship Round on Sunday afternoon had gone 3-for-3 on the weekend, but only one man was perfect throughout the entire event. Rookie Joao Ricardo Vieira was the only man to cover all four of his bulls for 353.25 points to win the 17th Annual Ty Murray Invitational presented by Sandia Resort & Casino. It was the first BFTS win of Vieira’s PBR career. Vieira selected Smackdown (Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/Clay Struve) for his championship round ride and turned in the high-marked ride of the weekend at 92.25 points. He entered the round in third place behind fellow countryman Emilio Resende and defending event champion J.B. Mauney. “I knew I had a good ride, at least 90 points or more,” Vieira said. “That bull is very hard to ride, he’s strong. He made one big jump and turned into my hand and I had to work very hard to stay on that bull. “Of course I’m very happy to win. I came here feeling strong. I’m ready to come back at the next event and do it again,” said 2013 Ty Murray Invitational PRB Event Champion. This event win significantly decreased the gap between Eduardo Aparecido, the leader in the 2013 Rookie of the Year race, and Vieira. Entering the event, Vieira was 777.78 points behind and now trails Aparecido by less than 300 points in the race for the Rookie of the Year title. Of the five men who had covered three bulls, four were Brazilians, Resende, the reigning rookie of the year, Vieira, Aparecido and Fabiano Vieira. Mauney was the fifth man. Mauney looked sharp on the weekend. When he covered Hell Pony (JD Nix Rodeo Co./Shawn Davis) in Round 3 for 88 points to take the event lead, a repeat from the 2012 event seemed like a good possibility. He entered the championship round in second, 1.25 points behind Resende. Mauney drew Meat Hook (Jeff

Robinson/Bar 3D Bucking Bulls), who he had covered earlier this year, but this afternoon the matchup yielded a different result. He was bucked to the ground and ended the event third overall behind Vieira and Resende. The race for the PBR World Championship title took a turn during the Ty Murray Invitational, seeing Shane Proctor slip from the top position and Marco Eguchi take the top rung. Proctor went 0-for-3 for the event; Eguchi was 1-for-3, opting not to compete Sunday after suffering an injury to his riding hand in earlier rounds. His 85 points atop Hart/Switchhouse/Plummer’s Misery Business on Friday was enough, however, to overcome the 21 points he trailed Proctor entering the weekend and move him into first place in the overall world standings. Silvano Alves, who also went 1-for-3 this weekend, remains in third with Mauney closing the gap in fourth and Jordan Hupp in fifth. In bovine action the streak is still alive. Bushwacker tossed his 40th cowboy and captured the Pabst Blue Ribbon High-Marked Bull Award for the fifth time this season, scoring 47.25 points. Billy Robinson selected Bushwacker as his final round bull, but could only handle him for 2.58 seconds. After the ride Robinson said, “I was so far down in the points in the round, I needed a bull I could be a bunch of points on to win. He’s the best bull in the world, so I figured what better bull to pick to try to come out on top. He’s a great bull. He stands in the bucking chutes just as calm as any bull could. But when they open the gate he lets you know he’s all there.”

Competitorial continued from page 4 years apart… and I have to say, that steer was just as good the last time as he was the first time… and the same size, too. One time, he ended up owing me some money on a deal and fessed up that he didn’t have any way to pay me back. He told me he’d like to trade it out in a steer lease. He said he had a nice little set of steers he could bring me for a few months and we could square up that way. I wasn’t there when he dropped them off at my arena… Let’s just say that I figured out that by “nice little set of steers” he meant “little” as in the size of the set, not the steers. I laugh thinking about it… they were the definition of “hogs”… would barely fit through the chute. I think I roped them about twice in three months when I called him up and told him we were square and he could “come get em’.” In a day or two he was there to load them up, and after a chastising for getting them too fat, he invited me over to rope at his house sometime and off he went in that one-ofa-kind, green and white truck that he seemed to have forever. That was Crespin. Though he never looked to have much, he was happy as a lark and thankful for

everything he had. His outfit and the famous Oasis Arena looked like it was straight out of an Ace Reed cartoon. Still, it always seemed like he was helping out others. Tough and weathered on the outside, his was a gentle soul. Seemed like he was always toting around some orphaned puppy, or finding a way to put together a benefit roping for someone in need. But most treasured to him was his little girl. Though I have not seen her in years, and not sure how she survived him, he always told me how proud he was of her. When last we talked, he told me how well she was doing in college and I wasn’t surprised. Raising a little girl by yourself within the confines of his lifestyle, couldn’t have been easy. I’ve seen him sternly set her straight more than once, but in the next moment dote on her like only a father can. He loved her… and made sure everyone around knew it. For me, the measure of someone’s life is pretty simple. Everything aside, it’s the net affect you leave on the people around you. So… as I said… the world is a little bit of a lesser place without Crespin Padilla, and NONE of us are better without him. … God speed, my friend.

that was the one you needed,” he said. It worked out well for Sundell.

Nancy Hunter, from Neola, Utah, beat her competition by one, one hundredth of a second, with a final time of 14.40 seconds. Hunter has been at RodeoHouston before, but never made it past the first round. Now, she has the title and $53,000.

The 2013 RodeoHouston BP Super Series Championship culminated, Saturday, March 16, with eight champions grinning ear to ear and taking home $50,000, a RodeoHouston buckle and custom-made saddle.

K.C. Jones, of Decatur, Texas, bulldogged his way to another saddle and buckle for his collection with a 5.4-second run in steer wrestling. As the champion, he earned an accumulated $53,950 from the 2013 RodeoHouston BP Super Series.

J.W. Harris grew up around rodeo, watching his dad ride bulls. He found his own passion for the sport and rode it all the way to the bank when he won the BP Super Series Bull Riding Championship and a $56,300 paycheck with an 89-point ride.

Tie-Down Roping Fred Whitfield, of Hockley, Texas, knew the time he had to beat as he shot out of the box on his last run at the 2013 RodeoHouston BP Super Series TieDown Roping Championship. Tying the calf in 7.8 seconds, the crowd went wild and Whitfield fed off their energy. His 2013 Super Series winnings totaled $57,000.

Bareback Riding Tom McFarland, of Bowie, Texas, pulled off a major win with a Shootout Round score of 93. Prior to barreling out of the chute, he learned Virgal, the bronc he drew from Mo’ Betta Rodeo Company, was one of the rankest horses in bareback riding.

Team Roping Justin Davis, of Madisonville, Texas, and Clay Cooper, of Gardnerville, Nev., just started roping together this winter, but their success does not show it. In 5.6 seconds, they tied with Trevor Brazile and Patrick Smith in the Shoot-Out Round. To end the tie, each rode again in a ride-off; Davis and Cooper came out on top with a 12.1-second run to secure their checks for $50,000 and the RodeoHouston BP Super Series Team Roping Championship title.

CBR Wesley Silcox Wins South Point Vegas Shootout A record crowd was on hand for the South Point Vegas Challenge presented by Boot Barn benefitting Cox Charities and some great bull riding thrilled them all over the April 13-14 weekend! When the CBR comes to town they deliver on entertainment and when a PRCA World Champ, Wesley Silcox, adds a whopping $40,000+ check to the bill, it doesn’t disappoint. Considered a veteran in the bull riding world, Silcox is experiencing a resurgence of his career and won again in Vegas on a bull he rode earlier this spring, Showboat of Hurst Rodeo Co. Silcox won the CINCH Shoot-out during the Houston Rodeo tallying over $70,000 on the same bull in one year. “This is a great bull and I was real happy when I drew him tonight in the shoot-out round. I knew him well and he did great for me in Houston so I felt pretty confident I could win this. It feels great to be healthy and riding the way I know I can. I hope to continue down the road and to ride the way I have been,” said Silcox after winning. Lyndal Hurst also walked away a happy man with a $20,000 Palace Station Million Dollar Bull Team win. He also takes High Marked Bull honors for Jarrod Longs 91 point ride on Got It.

Cooper Davis Wins Tuff Hedeman Championship Challenge The best of the best bull riders from all over the United States headed to Fort Worth over the April 6-7 weekend with the dream of winning the prestigious Tuff Hedeman Championship Challenge. Cooper Davis’ dream came true by riding 90 point rides in each round. In front of a sold-out crowd at the Historic Stockyards Coliseum, the young bull rider from Jasper, Texas proudly accepted the winning buckle from his hero, Tuff Hedeman, and stated, “I am honored to be invited to be a part of this great event. I can honestly say this is one of the best days of my career.” Davis is currently ranked #2 in the CBR and with this win he may take it to #1 or close to it. The Palace Station Million Dollar Bull Team Challenge payout went to Rocking R Bucking Bulls who also got the highest marked bull honors from Cooper Davis’ 91 point ride on Little Moody. The show also included the Tuff Hedeman Cripple Creek Junior Challenge, that allows young kids with bull riding dreams the chance to compete and buck steer and tonight’s winner was Kane Livingston, from Cleburne, Texas.

Cloud, Olney Share Xtreme Bulls Crown When Howdy Cloud left Fort Mohave, Arizona for some R&R in Las Vegas Saturday night, he figured there was “absolutely zero chance” that the lead he shared with Cheyne Olney at the Fort Mohave Classic PRCA Xtreme Bulls event would hold up to get them the win. “I mean, I thought we had a decent shot at winning the first round (they each had 89-point rides),” Cloud said, “but we were bucked off in the short go and I figured that someone was sure to get one ridden in the finals on Sunday.” Or not. The bulls went 20-0 in the short round of this $54,050 event on March 23-24 and all of a sudden those 89-pointers on opening night turned out to have a silver lining for Cloud and Olney. They each earned checks for $11,450, with $7,162 of that coming from the wholly unexpected average wins. It was the first Xtreme Bulls Tour event without a qualified ride in the finals since Jordan Hooton won in Bremerton, Wash., in August 2009 – coincidentally with an 89-point ride in the first round. This was also the first tie in an Xtreme Bulls Tour event since Stormy Wing and Clayton Williams tied in Bremerton in

2010 and just the second in the 11-year history of the series. “It’s not very usual,” Cloud said in a fine bit of understatement. “It didn’t seem like any of us had much luck in the short go.” Cloud got his share of the win by riding Bar T Rodeo’s Big Shoes for 89 points and Olney equaled that score on Burns Rodeo Company’s Kid Twist, a bull that helped Seth Glause win a check in Round 10 of the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. “I’d never seen (Big Shoes) before,” Cloud said. “The stock contractor (Jeff Flitton) said he was a nice little black bull Beau Schroeder was airlifted to Las Vegas after a bad wreck at the Fort Mohave Classic Xtreme Bulls event March 24 left him with two collapsed lungs and a torn trachea. Surgery to repair the trachea was performed that night at the University Medical Center. Schroeder will have a tracheostomy tube in his neck for six weeks and will be unable to speak. He is reportedly texting family and friends from the Intensive Care Unit. Schroeder, of China, Texas, won the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo average title in December and finished fourth in the 2012 world standings.

that would probably get me around 82 points and qualify me for the short go. He turned out to be a bit better than that. He had a good day.” In retrospect, you’d have to say he had a great day, a nice surprise leading to an even better surprise a day later.

Three-Time World Champion John Bowman Heads 2013 ProRodeo Hall Of Fame Induction Class The late John Bowman, a three-time world champion and a charter member of the Cowboys’ Turtle Association – he signed the original petition and carried card number 10 – heads the 2013 ProRodeo Hall of Fame induction class of five. Bowman is joined by the late 1962 Saddle Bronc Riding World Champion Kenny McLean, 1990 Bareback Riding World Champion Chuck Logue, four-time PRCA Bullfighter of the Year Joe Baumgartner and the late Rex “Bud” Kerby, one of the PRCA’s top stock contractors for more than 30 years. Induction ceremonies are scheduled for 10 a.m. July 13 in the garden area of ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy in Colorado Springs.

AZ Joins National Day of the Cowboy National Day of the Cowboy will be observed this year on July 27. Arizona just became the fourth state to make this a permanent celebration, joining Wyoming, California and New Mexico.

Letter From the President Dear NMRA Members — One of my primary responsibilities as president is to serve as the enforcement person for our rule book. Enforcement and collection of fines for rule infractions is necessary to preserve fairness to all, I get that… but having to do it still stinks sometimes, especially when it is a young person who simply made a mistake. But, there are those folks who somehow believe that the rules don’t apply to them and that they can disrespect our rules at will… it doesn’t bother me so much to enforce the rules then. I attended a team roping in Bernalillo this last weekend and it was nice to be able to compete without having to deal with a multitude of NMRA issues. The first day not one word was said about the NMRA, the second day, however, was different. I had a conversation with a member about the fact that I allowed a late entry in the team roping at the Membership Drive Rodeo. The individual who I had allowed to enter late was in attendance at the roping that day and interestingly enough when he was pointed out to me I immediately noticed he was the only person in the barn wearing a T-shirt. I wondered to myself if there was a dress code with this association or if Pop culture had invaded yet another Western event. Well, karma must have really been working that day because I was sitting there on my horse minding my own business when the T-shirt guy rolled up next to me. A third young man was just about to ride into the box when T-shirt man told him, “Take your ball cap off or they will flag you out.” Well, me being who I am, I could not resist, so I commented to T-shirt man, “So, you can’t wear a ball cap but you can wear a T-shirt at these deals?” T-shirt man said, “What’s wrong with my shirt,” to which I commented, “It’s not Western attire.” What he said next was possibly one of the dumbest statements I have ever heard uttered out of a human’s mouth. “This is not a Western event.

rope. This is not a Western event.” I cracked up… the sheer ignorance and arrogance of such a comment was entertaining to be sure, but also the more I thought about it, troubling as well. I read Robin Davis’s last article and I happen to agree with him. I understand that I may be in the minority these days but I have refused to tweet or Facebook and texting, although I do it, really is annoying to me. So, when pop culture and our Western heritage collide… as far as I am concerned, it becomes a respect issue. Respect our Western heritage or leave… there is no gray area in my book and I will not apologize for my position on that. I began looking around at all the other contestants at this roping and you will be happy to hear that our Western heritage is alive and well. Hats, boots, long-sleeved collared shirts and several guys riding around with tie strings on their saddles were the majority in attendance. Apparently this is a choice at these events because none of them were wearing T-shirts… electing instead to respect those that came before us and paved the way. In sharp contrast and ultimately to my amusement, later in the day I looked up to see T-shirt man riding in close proximity to Walter Arnold (world champion Walter Arnold for those of you who don’t know him.) Mr. Arnold was dressed appropriately. So, I stopped and thanked God for legends like him and the sacrifices people like him have made so that we may live the lives we do now. What’s the point? We do have a dress code rule in the NMRA and while I was powerless to do anything about the team roping event I attended, I am not powerless in the NMRA. Leave your T-shirts and ball caps in the truck… and your weed… when you are headed toward the NMRA arena floor this year. Because of T-shirt man I have re-dedicated myself to living by the rules. — Thank You, John Adams

the incentive saddle. The year-end Senior winners were Geneva Tsouhlarkis, Kathy Price, Tami Jaramillo and Shirley Pelot. Trennary Turner was named Rookie of the Year and we recognized the many helpers throughout the year that makes our district a great place to be. Saturday night’s $2,500 added 4D race saw 121 open, 35 youth and 23 senior entries. Haley Wolfe won the 1D with a 16.9 (the fastest time run during the weekend) and Haley Hensley, Cierra LeFebre and Noreen Canada winning the other open divisions and also took home more prizes. On Sunday we had 126 open, 39 youth and 22 senior entries come and run for another $2,500 added money. Cami Reed ran the fastest time with a 17.0 on her 24-year-old horse Sam. Other open winners were Stormi Pittman, Alecia Sandoval and Terri Taylor. By the time the last barrel was turned on Sunday all the volunteers helped pack up in record time and by 3:00 pm almost everyone was on their way home. We want to thank everyone who pitched in to make this a great weekend. Our members are great at volunteering to help things run smoothly, knowing that 100% of our profits go back to our members in added money and prizes. We are truly a group with more commonalities than differences and we are lucky to be barrel racing in San Juan County! Complete results can be found at nmnbha.com.

NBHA NM-1 2013 Finals Spring Weekend!

Warm weather and hot runs set the stage for the NBMHA NM1 District Finals and finished one for the history books over the course of March 15-17, 2013 in Farmington, New Mexico. A record amount of $16,100 added money combined with 10 saddles, buckles and tons of prizes made the weekend seem like Christmas for all the winners. Friday night was filled with fun and laughter with a pole bending jackpot, our first ever Wild 5 Barrel Race and our popular dog races. Arena Director Lance Taylor kept the pace steady Saturday morning with 86 members in the $9,113 added money Finals open, 31 youth and 20 seniors with Jeannie Roberts running the fastest time. Other Finals buckle winners were Becca Kenner, Trennary Turner and Linda Calkins. Youth winners were Cami Reed, Bri Suckla, Shaylee Pacheco and Delaney Gonzales. Senior winners were Jeannie Roberts, Cindy Haga, Kathy Price and Julie Pluemer. Team 8 each walked away with $113 and a beautiful necklace regardless of their time. This is a fun tradition that gets everyone rooting for each other. Year-end open winners got beautiful saddles. A huge thanks goes to Energen Resources and David and Leanne Wolfe who sponsored saddles. Winners got to choose from seven different prize sets, which included all kinds of tack and luggage. Cindy Haga won the Senior saddle by making the closest estimate to her time. Taking home open saddles were Haley Wolfe, Cindy Haga, Shaylee Pacheco and Esther Tom in the open and year-end youth winners were Haley Wolfe, Bri Suckla, Shaylee Pacheco and Cheyenne Pioche. Jeannie Roberts won

Picky Eaters

I

and corned beef and cabbage. had the reputation of being Although I really doubt if they’d have somewhat of a “picky eater” as a eaten it either. child. I would say that on average my Eggs are my all-time least-favorite mother uttered to me at least twice a food and my mom was always trying to day, “There are children starving in sneak them in on me, like in French Africa who would love that food you are toast or cake batter. But an egg is an egg trying to hide from me with your and I could smell one a mile away. napkin. Now clean up your plate.” Every time she’d serve one I’d Believe me, if I could have afforded the innocently ask, “Do you know where UPS or FedEx charges I would have that egg has been?” Or, “Do you know gladly shipped those starving kids in what orifice of the chicken that egg Africa my mother’s creamed corn, came1/6 out of?” Comments like that lasagna, Lima beans, liver andProductions onions ruined the dining experience for everyone and I think by the time I left home I’d almost convinced my mom that eggs were the Devil’s doing. I didn’t even like my mom’s famous apple pie, and believe me, my mother’s For Your Action pies were known far and wide for their Photography and Videos goodness. It’s just that I subscribe to that Mark and Becky Hutchings old cowboy adage, “Tromp on my corns Photography/Videography and tell me lies, just don’t pass me no apple pies.” It wasn’t that my mother was trying to feed me universally recognized yucky food like rack of raccoon, or filet of Fido fondue. No, my mom was a fabulous cook. It’s just that I’ve always had a highly sophisticated palate with a refined sense of good taste. Although, I must admit, she didn’t buy that line of BS either. But recently I discovered I’m not near the picky eater that some folks are. My wife’s best friend Vicki told us about a recent experience in which she “We Are Your Stop Action Photographer” and her beautiful daughter Erin were eating large pretzels dipped in mustard 15 McCord Lane • Belen, NM 87002 for lunch. To which I say, “Yuck!” Vicki 505.407.4627 had half of a large pretzel left in her doggy bag when she passed a homeless poundinghooves.com person. Vicki, being the sweetheart that pictures@poundinghooves.com she is said, “Would you like the rest of

ALL-AROUND

my large and delicious pretzel?” To which the so called “hungry” man replied, “No thanks. I’m a vegetarian.” Even that homeless guy doesn’t take home the prize as being the pickiest eater on the planet. Awhile back I was visiting with my friend Tony Branquinho. If the name sounds familiar it might be because his brother Luke has been the World Champion steer wrestler several times now. Tony was telling me about John W. Jones, Jr. who was also a World Champion steer wrestler three times, not to be confused with his father, John W. Jones, who also won the buckle as World Champion Steer Wrestler. It just so happens that the Jones’ Ranch is only one ranch away from a ranch I leased for many years. As a neighbor, let me tell you, the Joneses are World Champion people too. The closest I’ve ever been to the flame of fame was the night I was given the responsibility of holding Katie Jones’ sister Shannon while Katie sang the National Anthem in front of a packed house at the NFR in Vegas. If I recall correctly, Katie was five years old at the time. Now she’s all grown up and engaged to be married to Bear Pascoe, a great ranch kid and team roper who plays football for the New York Giants. But enough name dropping and back to my story about picky eaters. According to Tony, John W. Jones, Jr. saw a gap-toothed, poor-looking lady with a dog by the side of the road and she was holding a sign that said she was hungry. Real hungry! John, being the great human that he is, drove up the highway to the Burger King and bought her a Whopper or two and some fries. When the World Champion Good Guy returned to the poor lady by the side of the road and handed her the free feast Tony says she took one look at the bag and said in a condescending manner... “I don’t eat fast food.” And you thought I was a picky eater! wwwLeePittsbooks.com
