Where are the results?

After yesterday’s televised finale of the PBR World Finals, I was excited to see that Cord McCoy finished in the top 10, so I went to the PBR’s website to see just where my friend finished and where he might’ve finished in the final world standings. I couldn’t find the results, much less the standings.[...]

Bareback baggage

I’d heard great things about the 2011 Bareback Riding Horse of the Year, Frontier Rodeo’s Full Baggage. On Saturday night during the final performance of the American Royal Rodeo at the Sprint Center, I saw why the horse earned the coveted halter. The big animal dusted a great cowboy, Bo Casper. Casper was doing all[...]

His form is championship caliber

I always enjoy talking with two-time steer wrestling world champion Dean Gorsuch. He’s articulate, intelligent and one of the best people you’ll ever meet.

The horse has been selected to work the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo for the fourth[...]

Elshere all the way

J.J. Elshere is an NFR-qualifying saddle bronc rider. His cousin, Cole, is hoping to be there soon. He put together a fantastic 89-point ride on Thursday night in the opening performance of the American Royal Rodeo and has a strong lead with three performances remaining at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. There are plenty[...]

Bulls night out

The opening night of the PBR World Finals was all about the bulls. In fact, just nine cowboys scored qualified rides. That says something about the quality of the animals. I suspect things will change some over the next few nights, but I believe the trend will remain on the side of the bulls. It’s[...]
