In The Arena

Bob Feist

This year is off to a great start with the winter rodeos full of new names in all events and some young guns chasing the golden dream of making the Wrangler National Finals and winning a world title.

Wow, another year has passed and another Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. This year’s rodeo was awesome in my old eyes and my congratulations to all of the big winners.

Here it is the end of another year with the Wrangler National Finals on tap to determine who the PRCA year-end champion will be. Also the World Series multi-million dollar roping at the South Point Equestrian Center will be making many team ropers happy with their huge payout. This year again shows the popularity of team roping by record payouts across the country and the top 15 showing big dollars won so far, and now the chance to add more big winnings with the lucrative WNFR payout.

I have been up at the ACTRA Finals in Reno for a couple of days and it is good to see so much family participation in all of the events and to see so many young and seasoned ropers roping together and having fun doing it.
