Four months ago, Trell Etbauer suffered a broken arm at the RAM Prairie Circuit Finals Rodeo in Duncan, Okla. He was scheduled to compete next weekend at the CINCH Timed Event Championship at the Lazy E.
Word came down today that it’s not going to happen.
“Unfortunately, my arm doesn’t feel strong enough to compete at this year’s Cinch Timed Event,” Etbauer wrote on a Facebook post Saturday afternoon. “It was a tough decision to have to turn out my most favorite event I go to all year long. Best of luck to those entered and helping.”
He will be replaced by Lane Karney of Creston, Calif., who first competed at the “Ironman of ProRodeo” last year. Karney, who focuses on heading and tie-down roping, proved last year why he was in the mix.
