GUYMON, Okla. – If asked, Ty Breuer will say that he feels a little rusty on the back of a bucking horse.

He didn’t show it Friday night during the first performance of the Guymon Pioneer Days Rodeo. Breuer matched moves with Frontier Rodeo’s Short Night for 85 points to take the early lead in bareback riding.

That’s not too shabby for a cowboy that hasn’t been on a bucking horse in more than a month. He’s been busy with his cow-calf operation at home in Mandan, North Dakota. It takes up a considerable amount of time during the early spring, but he proved early why he is one of the best in the business.

“This has always been a good rodeo to me,” said Breuer, 29, who won the 2014 Pioneer Days Rodeo trophy belt. “I like coming down here.”

He likes going just about anywhere this year. A four-time National Finals Rodeo qualifier, Breuer is having the best season of his career with more than $78,000 in earnings, and it’s only the third day of May – the regular season doesn’t end until Sept. 30, and only the top 15 in the world standings at that point earn berths to the NFR, the sport’s grand finale.

“I think I owe a lot of my success to rodeoing smart and being with the people I travel with, Steven Dent and Tanner Aus,” Breuer said. “They’ve helped me out a lot in my bareback riding career. The people I surround myself with have really helped a lot.

“Being in better shape helps a lot, too.”

Breuer has been dedicated the past couple of years to a stringent workout regimen. That is one of the guiding forces to him having such a success, even though his schedule on his North Dakota ranch has kept him out of the weight room.

“It’s awesome that rodeo has come this far that someone can make this kind of money in such a short period of time,” he said. “It also helps because I’m about to have another kid, so hopefully I’ll be able to stay home a little more this year.”

He knows, though, that in order to spend more time with his wife, Kelli; daughter, Kayd; and a newborn son come June, he’ll have to stay on this winning formula. While he’s padded his pocketbook quite well, he’ll need tens of thousands of more dollars if he wants to return to Las Vegas in December and battle for the world championship.

“I’ll go home now, finishing calving, hit a couple rodeos a week so I can keep getting on bareback horses, then I’ll go pretty hard at the end of June,” Breuer said. “I’ll start making time to go to my trainer, but I haven’t had the chance because of calving. I’ll go to my trainer early in the morning so I can be home when the sun comes up so I can get to work.”

That’s what’s worked so far, so why not stay with it.
