Cort Scheer made a good living during 10 days in Las Vegas for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, where he earned a little more than $70,000
But over the last 20 days, the saddle bronc rider topped it. Scheer, of Elsmere, Neb., competed in nine go-rounds at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and earned $88,350. He won the Super Series Shootout, then became the only $50,000 prize winner to earn the Cinch Super Shootout victory, adding $25,000 – he also earned $10,350 through the Super Series.
That’s an awesome run in Houston. In fact, Scheer won the first two and last three go-rounds in which he competed.
Other Super Shootout winners were bareback rider Will Lowe, bull rider Douglas Duncan and barrel racer Sherry Cervi.
