Ty Breuer wins Sheridan WYO Rodeo

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.

“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.”

Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association

101 Pro Rodeo Drive

Colorado Springs, CO 80919


  • The Winners at the $250,100 PRCA rodeo were all-around cowboy Ryle Smith ($7,051 in steer wrestling and tie-down roping), bareback riders Shane O’Connell (85.5 points on Bridwell Pro Rodeos’ Caddy Wagon) and Tilden Hooper (85.5 points on Bridwell Pro Rodeos’ Raggidy Ann), steer wrestler Chance Howard (19.2 seconds on four head), team ropers Coleman Proctor and Billie Jack Saebens (38.1 seconds on four head), saddle bronc rider Hardy Braden (85 points on Calgary Stampede’s Turbo Rocket), barrel racer Stevi Hillman (34.58 seconds on two runs) and bull rider Trey Benton III (88.5 points on Rosser Rodeo’s Heartbreak).
    The Red Bluff Round-Up has awarded its annual Top Hand Award to one of its volunteers. Cliff Kemen was honored with the award during the Round-Up’s annual volunteer recognition night on April 15. Kemen, who grew up in Minnesota and moved to California at the age of 16, began volunteering at the Round-Up alongside his father-in-law, Dean Zeeveld, 45 years ago. He started helping Zeeveld with the fairgrounds entrance on Mulberry Street, but was moved to the gate on the east side of the arena. As the “gate man” for the rodeo arena, he’s responsible for letting in and out a variety of people in a variety of roles: the pickup men as they change horses, the cowgirls running flags, the RAM truck that brings in the barrels for the barrel racing, the specialty act, and the ambulance, if it is needed. He’s behind the scenes and never noticed by rodeo fans, which Kemen prefers. When Kemen started volunteering 40-plus years ago, he was “infatuated” with rodeo. Now, his interests have turned to team roping and cutting horses. For his years of volunteer service, Kemen was awarded a buckle. Kemen’s wife, Jolene, is a director with the Round-Up; the couple has a son and daughter, two grandsons and a granddaughter.

Aus-ome effort captures first Austin title


Tanner Aus had come painfully close to his first Rodeo Austin win a few years back. On Saturday night, he made sure that he’d be collecting the coveted branding iron that goes to each champion.
The 26-year-old bareback rider scored the win in the final round with an 89-point trip on Beutler & Son Rodeo’s Hollywood Hills. He earned $9,400 for that ride, as well as the branding iron, which he was most excited about.

And the Winner is?

Kaique Pacheco notches his first event victory of the year in St. Louis, Missouri at the St. Louis Invitational. The PBR Brazilian heir apparent to the crown captured his first event win of the year while all eyes were focused on Chase Outlaw and Missouri native Mason Lowe. Kaique rode Lester Gilles of Folds/Strickland for an 88.75 and the only ride in the championship round. With the win Kaique has jumped to third place in the world and seems to have a solid position in the cat bird seat chasing down Jess Lockwood and Eduardo Aparecido. But with eighteen events left before finals it is still anyone’s game. One question remaining is can Kaique dress up enough bulls between now and November to get a dozen or so scores above 88? 90?

New PBR Party Anthem, Music Video, and Live Shows Highlight New Partnership

PUEBLO, CO – PBR (Professional Bull Riders) is partnering with iconic band Warrant for its new “party anthem,” as well as a custom music video for PBR Bars and live concerts for PBR fans at select events. One such concert will be Friday, Feb. 10 at PBR Big Sky in Kansas City’s Power and Light District.

Warrant has recorded a foot-stomping remake of Merle Haggard’s classic, “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink,” which is also set to appear on the band’s next album Louder Harder Faster being released on Frontier Records in mid-April.

Warrant’s rousing version of the song, which was a number-one hit in October 1980 for Haggard, along with a music video featuring the band, top riders and bulls, will soon be a mainstay for PBR fans. The song will be played every night at midnight in the seven (soon to be nine) PBR Bars across the country as a clarion call for the good times to continue. The PBR-branded bars are located in Baltimore, Hampton (Virginia), Las Vegas, Kansas City, Louisville, Philadelphia, and St. Louis. Additional PBR Bars will be opening soon in Atlanta and Norfolk, VA.

Warrant will roll out its music video for “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink” at an official kickoff party at PBR St Louis in Ballpark Village on February 25, accompanied by a live performance. The video will be shot this evening at the PBR Big Sky in Kansas City, where the band will perform the night before the Kansas City Clash Presented by Express Employment Professionals.

In addition to the Kansas City and St. Louis concerts, Warrant will perform at other stops of the Built Ford Tough Series Tour, including Nashville, Sioux Falls, and twice in Las Vegas – at Las Vegas Helldorado Days in May and the 2017 PBR World Finals in November. Additional dates will be announced as the PBR season progresses.

“PBR is the ‘loudest, fastest and hardest’ sport in the country, and we are big fans of the athletes who lay it on the line doing what they love,” says Erik Turner, Warrant’s rhythm guitarist and co-founder. “Creating a party anthem is what Warrant loves to do and getting a chance to create one for the ‘toughest sport on dirt’ is a bonus. We’re pumped up to rock PBR Bars and events all year long.”

“The PBR was just getting started as Warrant was coming off the double platinum success of Cherry Pie, and fans have been hearing their hits at our events the past 24 years,” said Sean Gleason, CEO, PBR. “During the 2016 PBR World Finals, we were fortunate to have Warrant headline Saturday night in Toshiba Plaza, and they put on an incredible show for our fans. When we found out the members of the band are PBR fans, we jumped at the chance to work together on a custom music project and to make them a featured act during the 2017 season.”

Warrant will participate in a meet and greet with fans at the Frontier Communications Showdown in Anaheim on Saturday, February 4. The band will sign autographs and take pictures with fans from 5.30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the PBR Rewards booth, located inside the arena.

PBR’s partnership with Warrant follows a successful music and marketing collaboration with Steven Tyler who recently became the sport’s official voice with “Hold On (Won’t Let Go),” which now opens all PBR on CBS telecasts and is featured in PBR marketing. Tyler performed the song live in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas during the 2016 PBR World Finals, and it is also featured on his latest album, “Everybody Comes from Somewhere,” which debuted at number-one on the country music charts.

Formed in 1984 in Hollywood, Calif., Warrant has sold over 10 million albums. The band first came into the national spotlight with their Double Platinum debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich, with the single, “Heaven,” reaching No. 1 in Rolling Stone Hot 100 and No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The band continued its success in the early 1990s with the Double Platinum album Cherry Pie which provided the hit album titled song and music video. The band’s other hit singles include: “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries,” “I Saw Red,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and “Sex Ain’t Love.” For more information on the band, see
