EDITOR’S LETTER TRACY RENCK ProRodeo has never been more worth watching

T he PRCA would never be confused with the goliath that is the NFL. Rodeo isn’t a halftime show with glitz. Rodeos are no-nonsense family entertaining events that bleed patriotism where a handshake is as good as gold. Watching Super Bowl LVI between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals on Feb. 13 was entertaining. The state-of-the art SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., was packed with 70,240 spectators and had an average audience of 112.3 million viewers across TV and streaming platforms. Then, there was the Super Bowl LVI halftime show featuring rappers Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and singer Mary J. Blige. This type of extravaganza is expected from the NFL, which as recently as 2020, had its 32 teams generate $12.2 billion. The NFL is its own money-generating monster. No other sport compares. Not Major League Baseball. Not the NBA. Certainly not NASCAR. However, fans who don’t watch rodeo don’t know what they are missing. Rodeo is like hockey – not because of the toughness of the athletes, which I would give the nod to cowboys – because it is a sport that needs to be seen in person to truly appreciate. “Rodeo is Americana type of people, and freedom is our thing,” said award-winning rodeo clown/barrelman John Harrison last year in the June 25 edition of the ProRodeo Sports News. Harrison is right. Rodeos are about 5-foot-6, 150-pound cowboys trying to conqueror

standout animal athletes like 1,500-pound rank bulls and 1,000-pound bareback and saddle bronc horses for eight seconds in the original version of extreme sports. And, timed-event cowboys displaying unmatched skills in steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping and steer roping. When these events are done right it is poetry inmotion. For every football player like Matthew Stafford, Aaron Donald, and Cooper Kupp of the Los Angeles Rams – ProRodeo has its own superstars who the younger generation can identify with. A superstar like five-time PRCAWorld Champion StetsonWright, who is all of 22, and is the reigning three-time all-around world champ. Wright is the modern-day version of Ty Murray and well on his way to joining Murray in the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colo. Then there’s 2020 PRCA Tie-down Roping World Champion Shad “Money” Mayfield, who is 21. How about two-time saddle bronc riding world champ Ryder Wright, Stetson’s brother, who is 23. Don’t forget reigning world champion record-setting steer roper Cole Patterson is 26. There’s a theme here of youth and that will likely continue with 18-year-old young guns – bareback rider Rocker Steiner, saddle bronc rider Statler Wright and tie- down roper Riley Webb now in the PRCA fold.

Tracy Renck is the editor of the ProRodeo

Sports News . He previously served more than seven years as a media coordinator at the PRCA. He has three decades of experience in sports journalism with the last several consumed by ProRodeo.

Skeptics see rodeo as a niche sport. Everybody has the right to their own opinions, but rodeo deserves to be mainstream viewing. Give it a chance.

COWBOY GRILLE WITH TANNER BARTH

How’d you get your start in rodeo? Adam: I’m a third-generation cowboy. My grandpa open rodeoed for a long time back in the ‘50’s and 60’s. My dad has rodeoed since he was young, my mom also barrel raced at times. So, it’s something that has always been in my blood and that I’ve wanted to do. When did you know you could make a career out of rodeo? Adam: I think it’s something that I’ve always wanted to try and make a living doing it. Ever since I was five years old, I had always dreamed of being in the PRCA and competing at the NFR. Now I have that chance to go out and do it. Why did you decide steer wrestling would be your event? Adam: My dad did it for years and I guess it was just always in my blood. I loved it ever since my first run. I like the horsemanship that goes with it and the adrenaline rush is awesome. Did you do any other rodeo events growing up? Adam: I team roped a little bit and I breakaway roped when I was 12 or 13 years old at some junior rodeos. Ultimately it was steer wrestling that stuck with me though. What horses are you riding right now? Adam: I’m riding a horse named Calvin right now. We bought him a while ago from a buddy of my dad’s. Things are going really well between the two of us right now. Why did you decide to get your PRCA card this season? Adam: I had my permit last year and did pretty well. This year I went to the circuit finals and did okay, so I thought I would just go ahead and get my card. Who is someone you look up to in the rodeo business right now? Adam: I’ve always looked up to my dad, he taught me everything I knew growing up. There a few guys going right now that I really like to pay attention to and watch what they’re doing. Those guys are Tyler Pearson and Tyler Waguespack. What are your goals for the rest of the season? In his first four months of being a PRCA card holder, steer wrestler Adam Musil has taken the sport by storm. The Crescent, Okla. cowboy, currently leads the Resistol Rookie of the Year standings with $8,874. His big bump in the standings came after he won a round in Odessa, Texas at the Sandhills Stock Show & Rodeo and in Denver at the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo. He sits 18th in the latest PRCA | RAM World Standings.

ADAM MUSIL

Adam: My main goal is to stay positive throughout the season if something little happens don’t worry about it. Just brush it off and go on with it. Making the NFR and winning (Resistol) Rookie of the Year are up there too, it would dang sure be exciting for me and my family. What your favorite TV show? Adam: I think I would have to pick Welcome Back, Kotter . It’s an old 70’s tv show and it’s a ton of fun to watch. What’s your go to meal before or after a rodeo?

Adam: If I had to pick one good meal it would probably have to be a T-bone steak and some eggs. I always like a good trip to Texas Roadhouse. What the first vehicle you drove? Adam: My first vehicle is the one I’m still driving to this day. It’s a second gen, 2001 Dodge Cummins. It has about 400,000 miles on it. The truck and I are the exact same age. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not rodeoing?

Adam: I really enjoy ranching when I’m not rodeoing. My dad and I own a ranch together. I love going out there and checking my cows and feeding them. Then, usually I’m practicing on the weekends with family. What’s your favorite holiday? Adam: I’d probably have to say Thanksgiving. Usually, my family makes a lot of food and I gorge myself, that’s one of the best parts. Plus, I just like spending quality time with my family. What was your favorite cartoon growing up? Adam: I have always loved Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry. It’s hard to beat Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam.

of artifacts in our collection allows us the opportunity to build creative exhibits that each tell a portion of the story of professional rodeo and our western heritage.” Since its beginning in 1979, the ProRodeo Hall of Fame has collected items from across the rodeo world. Often these items do not correspond to an inductee or other display and are usually kept in storage.

“It’s fun to bring out items that have not been on exhibit in a while or maybe not at all,” said Kent Sturman, Director of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame, and Museum of the American Cowboy. “As with any museum, we have more items than we can ever put on display at the same time or year-round.

sixth PRCA Bareback Riding World Championship this past December in Las Vegas and hasn’t missed a beat since jumping into the 2022 season. In his first rodeo of the new year Feild went to Fort Worth (Texas) and continued his dominance at the Stock Show and Rodeo. He claimed his fourth FWSSR title with a record breaking 93-point ride on Macza Pro Rodeo’s OLS Tubs Stevie Nicks in the championship round. “I love Fort Worth, I’ve been coming here since 2006,” said Feild, a 12-time Wrangler NFR qualifier. “To beat the arena record and hold it now is something special. It’s a big weekend for me.” It was Feild’s first ever matchup with OLS Tub Stevie Nicks. He said while he’s never been on the horse it’s one he’s wanted to ride for quite some time. “I’ve been watching that horse for several years now,” he said. “Tilden (Hooper) my traveling partner got on that horse, Cole (Reiner) my traveling partner got on that horse, but I’ve never had the opportunity. So, to line up here in Fort Worth and get the year started like this is pretty dang awesome, I’ll tell you that.” His performance and $26,360 payday in Fort Worth has already bumped him inside the top 5 of the PRCA | RAMWorld Standings. He credits his success over the past few years to changes in his mentality inside and outside the arena. “The way that I’ve been able to get focused in for the last year and a half has changed a little bit,” Feild said. “I don’t know if it’s just my preparation or my family, but things are really good right now. In my opinion life plays into those eight seconds. “I’m taking it as a hobby rather than a job right now. I get to do this, I get to come get on these fun bucking horses. I don’t have to do anything and it’s a lot of fun. Over the years I’ve learned to treat it that way and I think that’s really helped me.” He plans to take that mentality with him throughout the season. He said it’s all about using that early season confidence and turning into more success down the rodeo road. “It gives me a lot of confidence going into San Antone and big rodeos like this,” he said. “It’s a lot of fun, I’m really looking forward to the rest of the year and seeing how it all shakes out in the end.”

FORT WORTH STOCK SHOW & RODEO Stetson keeps sizzling

The winter stop in Fort Worth, Texas, has been very profitable for StetsonWright. Wright, the reigning and three- time all-around world champ and current saddle bronc world champ had a memorable experience. On Jan. 19, Weight won the Swels – Division 1 Xtreme Bulls event at Dickies Arena and earned $19,654. The Milford, Utah, star did even better at the Fort Stock Show and Rodeo in saddle bronc riding, leaving town with $25,880 in that event. Wright collected $20,000 of that haul when he won the finals with a 91.5-point ride Macza Pro Rodeo’s OLS Tubs Get Smart. That came on the heels of Wright’s semifinal ride where he set the arena record with his 92-point ride on Calgary Stampede’s Y U R Friskey and earned $4,000. Wright’s ride on Get Smart comes as no surprise as that horse was selected as the Wrangler NFR top saddle bronc horse the last two years. “She stalled there for a second and blew out hard and luckily got her marked out,” Wright said. “Everything after that, I was trying to stay back, and lift and it ended up working the way I wanted to.” Cody Wright, Stetson’s father and two-time PRCA Saddle Bronc World Champion in 2008 and 2010, had the Fort Worth record with a 91.5-point ride in 2011. Stetson was thrilled to keep the record in the family. “To hear my name in the same sentence as my dad as far as riding goes is pretty special,” Stetson said. “So, to have my name up there with his is pretty awesome.” The victory for Stetson in Fort Worth didn’t come easy. He won the wildcard round with an 88.5-point trip on Bridwell Pro Rodeo’s Beaver Bend to stay in the mix for the Fort Worth crown. “It was dang sure harder,” Wright said about his journey to claim Fort Worth glory. “I had to get on some different types of horses through the whole set. I had some hard ones to ride, but the last few I got on were everything a guy would want. You stub your toe; they are going to buck you off and I was just lucky enough to do my job on all of them.”

FORT WORTH, TEXAS

BY TANNER BARTH & TRACY RENCK

Sage Kimzey jumpstarts 2022 season The last two weeks have been a whirlwind to say the least for seven-time PRCAWorld Champion Bull Rider Sage Kimzey. On January 25, Sage and his wife Alexis welcomed their first child Steele into the world. Now, fast forward 12 days and he’s already making his young son proud. Kimzey captured the coveted title at the 2022 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo with a 91.5-point ride on 4L &Diamond S Rodeo’s Space Unicorn in the championship round. “I told Alexis, ‘if I’m going to be gone from you two I’m going to make it worth it,’” said Kimzey, 27. “I had a really nice draw tonight in Space Unicorn of Scott Pickens. You know I was really happy to have him, he’s a really great bull and it all worked out for me here in Fort Worth.” The eight second ride in the finals earned Kimzey $20,000, over the course of four rides in Fort Worth he walked away with $29,827 in his pocket. He said even though his layoff after the NFR was longer than usual it was something he needed to get back on track. “It was a needed break for sure,” Kimzey said. “The NFR is such a stressful atmosphere and there’s so much going on. I always take a little time to decompress anyway. There was a lot of stuff physically therapy wise that I needed to work on.” Even though Kimzey missed nearly two weeks of action he quickly made-up ground. The win moved him inside the top 5 of the PRCA | RAMWorld Standings once again. He said he’s exactly where he wants to be and is excited to finish out the winter run strong. “I had to miss a bunch of rodeos the last week and a half but this kind of made all of that null and void,” he said. “It kind of puts me right where I want to be.”

Tie-down roper Bryson Sechrist keeps chasing the Wrangler NFR dream. It came into a little bit better focus on Feb. 5. The Oklahoma cowboy won the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo with a 7.2-second run in the finals. Sechrist’s final run earned him $20,000 and he earned $23,760 total in Fort Worth. “I have been waiting on this for a long time,” Sechrist said. “I have been coming to Fort Worth ever since I got my (PRCA) card in 2012 I believe. This is huge. I have grown up with a lot of those guys (who were in the finals) and they know how to go fast. I knew I had to just let it all hang out and let it go and it worked out.” Sechrist’s didn’t have any secret formula for his blistering run, which was a record for the storied FWSSR. “It is a lot of muscle memory,” Sechrist said. “Soon as I roped to him and got to him, it was all a blur. When I saw the 7.2, I still didn’t think I was going to win it, but I knew I would get a good check. I’m just glad it worked out. I never thought I would set the arena record. That arena record will not last long. Those guys, they how to reach, and they can get after it.” Sechrist is hopeful this win is a catalyst for his 2022 campaign. “Hopefully, we will just keep building and building and get things rolling.” Bryson Sechrist nabs tie-down win James Phifer photo Sage Kimzey wasted no time getting the 2022 season kicked off right with an 91.5-point ride on 4L & Diamond S Rodeo’s Space Unicorn to win.
