Pro Rodeo Begins It’s Long Year on the Road

Lebaron gets rookie season off to fast start in Mesquite

MESQUITE, (PRCA)  – Nile Lebaron knows how to make a wedding anniversary memorable.

Lebaron marked the fourth anniversary of his marriage on Dec. 29 – with wife Christine in attendance – by winning the bull riding at the Winter Classic Rodeo in his debut as a PRCA card holder.

He rode Stace Smith Pro Rodeos’ Monkey Moves for 85 points to outdistance Cody Teel, runner-up in last year’s rookie of the year standings, and two qualifiers for the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo – Trevor Kastner and L.J. Jenkins.

“It was the first time Christine has been out to see me ride since the birth of our second daughter, Hailey, in November,” said Lebaron, who lives in Hamilton, Texas. “We had a nice day out before the rodeo and the win made it even more special.”

Lebaron, who was born in Chihuahua, Mexico (his father, Brent, still has a pecan farm there), and holds dual citizenship, is traveling with Jay Morrow for the 2012 season, looking to compete in as many PRCA rodeos as he is eligible to enter.

His goals are set high.

“I’m not really focused on the Rookie of the Year Award,” Lebaron said. “The plan is to qualify for the Wrangler NFR. I figure if I compete well enough to do that, the rookie award will take care of itself.”

After missing three months last fall with a neck injury, Tilden Hooper was relieved and grateful to make eight qualified rides at the Wrangler NFR earlier this month. His win at the Winter Classic, with an 85-point ride on Stace Smith Pro Rodeos’ Sun Kissed, was something special.

“It shows me that if I stick to the same exercises that I did during my time off and stay in shape,” Hooper said, “I should be able to keep doing what I’m doing and be successful. I love bareback riding and it’s great to be able to feel like I’m back on the right track.”

The other winners at Mesquite were steer wrestler Chance Campbell (3.9 seconds), team ropers Justin Van Davis and Travis Woodard (4.3 seconds), saddle bronc rider Jeremy Melancon (84 points), tie-down roper E.J. Roberts (6.9 seconds) and barrel racer Carlee Pierce (15.24 seconds).

2. Denver qualifying goes Pharr better than expected

“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.” – Michael Corleone, in The Godfather

DENVER – It’s true that Doug Pharr’s love affair with rodeo has cooled a bit, practicality in the form of a 9-to-5 job giving way to passion. Just don’t make the mistake of thinking the veteran tie-down roper doesn’t still get the itch to compete at the highest level, especially if he gets a little encouragement.

Case in point? Pharr had entered the Jan. 1-3 qualifying segment of the National Western Stock Show & Rodeo only so that he might bank enough to earn a spot in San Antonio next month. He wasn’t planning to come back to the Denver Coliseum for the Jan. 12-22 main event no matter what happened.

Of course, all of that changed when he won the second round of the qualifier in 7.8 seconds and the two-head average in 16.5 seconds for total earnings of $4,093.

“Yeah, I’ll go back (to Denver) and see what I can do,” Pharr said. “It’s easy to fly back there and I know I can get on Justin Scofield’s sorrel, which is a real nice horse.

“If I could put together a couple of good rounds here or in San Antonio, have a strong winter, I figure I could be talked into staying out on the road more.”

The difference for Pharr, who turns 36 on Jan. 29, is that he is no longer focusing his life on rodeo. He sold his primary competition horse a couple of years ago to Jade Conner and has been working as a project manager for Roofing Restorations of America (RRSA) of Waxahachie, Texas, since the fall of 2010.

Pharr went from a hard-charger, a guy who qualified for the Wrangler NFR four times between 2000 and 2008, to a part-time circuit cowboy. A year ago he competed in just 23 PRCA rodeos, 21 of those in the Southeastern Circuit, and had official season earnings of $3,948 – less than he won in this one day in Denver.

“When I was younger, you couldn’t have paid me $1 million to stop rodeoing because my passion for the sport was so great,” Pharr said. “As you get older, your views change a little bit. I’ve been to four NFRs. I know how hard it is to do and what you have to sacrifice to keep going.

“When you have $4 gallon fuel to go down the road, plus the cost of the rigs and horses … it’s really hard to make a living. There are no 401Ks in rodeo. At some point you have to look to the future. The job I have … the money is better than I thought I’d ever see. I want a family some day and it’s hard to make enough to support a family in rodeo.”

The other advantage of having a good-paying job waiting, Pharr has learned, is that there is “a lot less pressure on me to win. When rodeo is your only source of income it puts pressure on you. I enjoyed (competing at) Denver this year better than I ever have.”

The other event winners at the Denver Coliseum were team ropers Tyler Magnus and Brandon Bates (11.2 seconds on two head) and steer wrestler Chason Floyd (11.5 seconds on two head). The top 40 competitors in each of the three timed events advance to the main event where they will join the 60 contestants already accepted.

3. Longview PRCA Rodeo gets new bleachers, lights and announcer’s stand

The Longview (Texas) PRCA Rodeo, in danger of being shut down just two months ago, is coming back April 20-21 with a major renovation to its arena that will include new bleachers, lights and a pre-fabricated announcer’s stand.

The Longview City Council voted to allocate $892,000 for the project late last month. The old bleachers, moved from Longview High School more than 30 years ago, were ruled unsafe by city inspectors and were torn down in November.

Work on the new aluminum seating – capacity will be 5,500, up from 5,100 – is scheduled to start next month. The local Rotary Club will paint the arena at the same time that the renovations are going on.

“We are not a big rodeo,” said Mary Ramos, director of the East Texas Tourism Association, “but we are committed to making things better for the contestants and spectators.

We added new chutes last year and this project represents a major upgrade.”

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“To be honest with you, I didn’t know what to expect. It’s kind of like asking John Elway what it is going to be like going into his first Super Bowl. It was nerve wracking the first couple of nights, but once I climbed in the bucking chutes it was business as usual for me. I didn’t let the pressure get to me.”

– Bareback rider Casey Colletti, telling his hometown paper, the Pueblo (Colo.) Chieftain, what it was like to compete in his first Wrangler NFR. Colletti finished fifth in the average and fifth in the world standings.

5. News and notes from the rodeo trail

Longtime contestant and PRCA judge Del Nose has returned to coach the Northwest College (Powell, Wyo.) rodeo team after a 19-month hiatus during which he managed a ranch in Montana.

Nose coached the Trappers from 1998-2010. “I’m thrilled to be back,” Nose told the Powell Tribune. “I’m looking forward to doing some recruiting and making it to the national finals with some quality team members.” … PRCA Gold Card member Walter Griva, a team roper who competed for many years at California Rodeo Salinas and the Grand National Rodeo at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, died Dec.

21 at his Salinas home. He was 81. Griva won money at most of the biggest regional rodeos of his day including the Chowchilla Stampede, Oakdale Rodeo and the San Jose Firefighters Rodeo … Wade Sundell, who has finished among the top three saddle bronc riders in the world standings the last two years, appeared at the Iowa State University Extension Outreach Program Fun Day on Dec. 27 to tell second and third grade students about his life in rodeo. Sundell showed the kids a video of his 90-point ride on legendary Miss Congeniality (“one of the best bucking horses that’s ever been”), his riding gear including his saddle (“this is my office”) and talked to them about the perils of his chosen sport (“I’ve been hooked, run over and stepped on”).
