Lindsay Sears dominated barrel racing at the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, placing in eight of 10 go-rounds, sharing the first-round win with Brittany Pozzi and winning the seventh outright.
She won the average and more than $133,000 en route to her second Montana Silversmiths gold buckle in four years. And she did it on her great sorrel mare, Martha. It’s a tremendous story, and when it appears in Women’s Pro Rodeo News, I plan to share it with you here.
The only downside is that I wasn’t able to have a down-to-it review conversation with the newly crowned champ to get a deeper understanding of her thoughts now that she’s had time to reflect on this great accomplishment. I’m blessed by the knowledge that she trusts me enough to tell her story without that conversation.
But there were many great stories from Las Vegas, and Lindsay’s is just one. In the coming days, I hope you’ll enjoy reading about Jane Melby make the most of her first qualification to the NFR, Lisa Lockhart still collecting a lot of cash despite knocking down a couple of barrels or Sherry Cervi finishing fourth in the average with a penalty.
