DODGE, CITY, Kan. – For the Etbauers there’s a bright light budding underneath the cover of the family tree. Saddle bronc rider Shade Etbauer managed to stay hot on the rodeo trail, as his 170-point two-head score netted the 23-year-old $4,926 in winnings. Settling into his groove as the rodeo progressed, Etbauer narrowly edged away from second-place bronc riders Wade Sundell and Jacobs Crawley by a single point. For the young Oklahoman, walking away from the Dodge City Roundup as champion was special. “I’m just really excited to be able to win,” Etbauer said. “This is a rodeo I’ve always tried to win. My dad won it, and my uncles always did really good at it. I’m just glad to check it off the list.” The 41st running of the Dodge City Roundup provided Etbauer a chance to digest the raucous southwestern Kansas atmosphere.

Over the course of 17 premier tour events in the first half of the season, the best bull riders in the world will compete in 15 states and continue the tradition that began in a motel room in 1992 when 20 bull riders founded the PBR.
SHERIDAN, Wyo. – Sankey Pro Rodeo & Robinson Bulls’ Black Tie was a bareback horse Ty Breuer wanted to ride. When he was given the chance, Breuer didn’t waste his opportunity. The Mandan, N.D., cowboy had an 88-point trip on the horse to capture the victory at the Sheridan WYO Rodeo (July 12-15). “I had seen that horse quite a bit and I always wanted to get on it because it was a real nice horse of Sankey’s,” Breuer said. “Every time I saw that horse, it was outstanding and I was tickled pink to have him and he had a good day and I had a good day.”
This is an old video from our Photo Editor Philip Leimbach of the 2012 C-T Bronc Bash Bucking Horse Futurity in Lubbock, Texas.
Charlie Thompson put on a great event. We are sure many of the horses in this video have become foundation horses in the ABBI bucking horse registry. Hope you enjoy the short video and check out Philip’s page for more photo and video work.
