Cowboy Christmas, a cowboy gift show, is held concurrent with the rodeo at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
2016 Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo started, there were 1,216 contestants entered. On Sunday 10 of them earned the coveted buckle that is legendary, prestigious and one of the most sought-after and hard-to-earn championships in the rodeo world.
Case in point, this year’s tie-down roping winner Jerome Schneeberger from Ponca City, Okla., has been coming here for 20 years and finally won the title. This year’s champions ran the gamut of rodeo experience from Schneeberger’s 20 years to a rodeo rookie.
Seven of the ten championships went to first-time winners at the 120th edition of the “Daddy of ‘em All.” Texan Jarett Blessing, who won the steer roping in 2014 and again this year, was the only individual to repeat as champion. J.D. Yates of Pueblo, Colo., the steer roping winner here in 1994, earned the all-around title, competing in steer roping and team roping. Early in his career, he was in the team roping here with his father. On Sunday, he roped in front of 13,235 fans with his son Trey Yates. They earned $13,317 each in team roping. J.D. Yates earned additional money in steer roping to give him a total of $24,351 to get the buckle.
Matt Shiozawa posted a 6.9-second time Thursday night, which tied the previous Round 1 record set by Cody Ohl in 2004. Brazile wasted little time taking the record for himself.
Brazile set the record with a little help from his No. 1 sorrel horse, Deputy. “He’s the reason I’m still competitive at 39,” said Brazile, who’s now won a record 60 National Finals go-rounds in tie-down roping, team roping and steer roping.
Breding, a 23-year-old from Edgar, is making his second NFR appearance. He enters the rich rodeo in second place among bull riders with 2015 earnings of $122,041. That trails leader Sage Kinzey by about $52,000, and that’s not much at a 10-performance event that features a payout of $26,230 for first place each night.
Each December, the top 15 bareback riders, steer wrestlers, team roping competitors, saddle bronco riders, tie-down ropers, barrel racers, and bull riders qualify to compete in the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.
Sage Kimzey, the defending world champion and world standings leader, was bucked off, allowing Breding – who entered Las Vegas second – to gain $26,231 on Kimzey in the world standings. Breding now trails Kimzey by less than one round win. However, his competing status for the rest of the WNFR is in doubt.
This was Schneeberger’s 20th consecutive trip to Cheyenne. He has had success here before and even come close to winning the title but saw it slip from his grasp at the last minute.
“I thought it (winning the title) could happen, but I didn’t think about winning it until the last roper started having a bit of trouble,” he said. The Oklahoma cowboy has qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) in Las Vegas 11 times, but after shoulder surgery earlier this year, he is focusing on rodeos close to home.
At the opposite end of the spectrum was bull rider Roscoe Jarboe. The 20-year-old Idaho cowboy is in his rookie season in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). He was ranked 14th in the world championship standings and led the rookie standings earlier this week. After earning more than $15,000 in Cheyenne, he’s in seventh and in a much better position to qualify for his first NFR. Jarboe is also in the lead in the Resistol Rookie Standings in the bull riding.
