The Sheridan County High School rodeo team is currently comprised of students from Sheridan High School and Big Horn High School. These students work year-round to earn enough money for their two-day rodeo every Memorial Day weekend at the Sheridan county fairground. Their biggest fundraiser is the NFR Fantasy party.
On Saturday, Nov. 26 the rodeo team will host a night of fun, prizes, and friendly competition at the sixth annual NFR Party at the Holiday Inn in Sheridan. The event is open to the public and intended to fundraise for the spring rodeo, senior scholarships, travel money for the team’s national qualifiers, and rodeo cancer fund donations.

To date Montgomery’s riding average is 100 percent. In addition to riding junior bareback horses, Montgomery also is a skilled roper and rider, winning buckles and other awards in goat tying, flag racing, steer riding, breakaway and team roping. Additionally, he plays football and wrestles for Huntley Project Junior High.
The father of the twenty-five year old cowboy is Troy Pruitt, the 1990 World Champion Tie-down Roper. Riley won the Nebraska High School Tie-down roping championship three times and finished third in the average at the College National Finals Rodeo in 2011, before hitting the pro rodeo trail full time.
The year 2016 has been his best yet, with him entering the WNFR in ninth place in the standings with $74,547 won in the regular season. His winning winter put him in a great spot – he won the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo in Denver, Odessa, Texas, the second round in San Angelo, Texas, and placed in San Antonio.
Doing well over the winter takes some of the pressure off during the busy summer season. “Having that much money won after the winter makes the summer a lot easier,” he said. “I can go to the big rodeos and don’t have to win first.”
Rodeoing a bit less in the summer also allows his horse to have some time off. “I didn’t have to have (Chip, his seventeen-year-old buckskin) in the trailer every day all year. We had a chance to come home a few days out of the week, and he got to relax and rest. He stayed strong for me all year.”
