Wrangler BFI Week In Reno

The good news out of Nevada for professional team ropers is the state has announced it can host the 2021 Reno Rodeo. BFI owners plan to simply build on the momentum of their March event in Guthrie, Oklahoma, to return “the most anticipated Monday of the year” to Reno this June. “We wouldn’t even have entertained the idea of moving the BFI if the Reno Rodeo hadn’t been cancelled last year,” said BFI co-owner Daren Peterson, who was forced to relocate to Guthrie’s Lazy E Arena in order to have a 2020 BFI. “Last October when we met with Nevada ...Read More

The Scoop on Clay Tryan’s Horse and What He Did Differently This Year

On March 14 at the 2021 BFI, Clay Tryan and Jake Long roped a leg on their fourth steer. In the fifth round, they knew a smooth run would get them back to the short round, where all 15 teams earn at least $8,000.

California team wins Jr. 10.5 for $20K

On March 18, mentored by a couple of roping superstars, Eli Green and Chase Helton of California bested 167 other teams to top the Jr. 10.5 and split a cool $20,000. “I was pretty nervous for that last one,” said 16-year-old Helton of Merced, who was in Guthrie with former BFI champion and family friend Cody Cowden. “I kept replaying a couple of runs we made in the practice pen to keep myself prepared.” It wasn’t their first pressure situation. Green, the 15-year-old son of 10-time NFR header Daniel Green, and Helton earlier this winter won a 10.5 truck roping ...Read More

Former national collegiate breakaway champion Macy Fuller of Morristown, Arizona, drew the best calf in the finals and made it count on March 17 at the Charlie 1 Horse All-Girl Challenge Breakaway. “I was pulling at the line for all I was worth, because he was slicked-off and small like he would be fast,” said Fuller, 28, whose 3.5-second effort won the round and bested 150 other ropers on three.
