Like every event, tie-down roping at the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo will feature many of the greatest contestants in the discipline.
From regular qualifiers like Bill Huber to world champions like Tuf Cooper, nine of the 24 cowboys have qualified to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Of those, three are from Oklahoma – Prairie Circuit winners Jerome Schneeberger and Hunter Herrin and Columbia River Circuit winner Blair Burk – and they’ll be competing in their home state from March 29-April 1 at Jim Norick Arena at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City.
Other NFR qualifiers include Cooper, Joseph Parsons, Matt Shiozawa, Nate Baldwin, K.C. Jones and Shane Hanchey. Jones has been a fixture at the Lazy E-produced Timed Event Championship, where he’s a four-time winner of that prestigious title.
