If you want to catch an NFR-like performance this weekend, tune in to ProRodeoLive.com at 7 p.m. central as he calls the action from the Cowboy Capital of the World Rodeo in Stephenville, Texas. It will be a showcase of great talent with Wrangler National Finals Rodeo experience, including the animals from Pete Carr Pro Rodeo.
Just looking at the draw, you will hear Steve Kenyon talk about three-time NFR qualifier Casey Colletti as he matches moves with two-time horse of the year Dirty Jacket. Jake Brown will have a rematch with Betty Boop, which bucked him off during the first round of the NFR last year.
Winn Ratliff will try his hand with Painted River, which helped Brown to the sixth-round title last December, while Richmond Champion will be matched with Hometown Girl – that horse guided R.C. Landingham to the Lovington title last month. Jessy Davis is matched with First Kiss, while Mason Clements – who is on the NFR bubble with Champion – will try his hand on Sadie’s Gal.
In bronc riding, Cody DeMoss has veteran horse Sweet Maria, while Tyrel Larsen will try to close out his season on Cool Runnings.
Bull rider Garrett Smith, who is heading to the NFR for the first time in his young career, will try to hang on to Hermes.
Those are just a few of the NFR-NFR match-ups, but it is a performance loaded with exceptional talent. It should be an amazing show, and Kenyon will keep you in the middle of it all the way through.
