champions and recognizing both rodeo personnel and committees who have gone above and beyond in 2022. Congratulations to the Top 15 barrel racers and breakaway ropers who have secured their first or 16th qualification to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo or the Wrangler National Finals Breakaway Roping. I am excited to see all these ladies on the big stage in Las Vegas and if the action during the regular season was any indication the Finals is going to be magical. Also, congratulations to everyone who has qualified for their respective circuit finals that will take place between October and January. Both our Resistol Rookies of the Year have also qualified for their first NFR and NFBR, respectively. Bayleigh Choate won the barrel racing Rookie of the Year and enters her first NFR ranked 11th. Choate made headlines earlier this summer winning the Ponoka Stampede and winning the most money of any barrel racer over the Fourth of July week. Josie Conner is our breakaway roping Rookie of the Year, and she enters her first NFBR ranked 15th after a hard-fought battle for the position at the end of the year. We thank Resistol for honoring both ladies through the rookie program.

Margo Crowther of North Fort Myers, Florida, entered the Cinch Playoffs at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup ranked 13th and was looking for her first trip to the Wrangler NFR. She too took advantage of the big payday in Puyallup to punch her ticket to Las Vegas. Crowther picked up $15,700 to move off the NFR bubble. Crowther rode her 2012 petite sorrel mare Shes Packin Fame “Sissy” to the title. The duo competed in the second set of barrel racers with three- time world champion Hailey Kinsel and Sister winning the first round in a time of 13.63 seconds.

Sioux Falls to Host Cinch Playoff Event September 28-30, 2023

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The Cinch Playoffs will play a bigger role than ever before in deciding who makes it to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo with a payout of more than $1 million on the final weekend of the 2023 season. The PRCA, the State of South Dakota, Experience Sioux Falls and Cinch announced the Cinch

Playoffs will have athletes competing for the Governor’s Cup and vying for the more than $1 million purse Sept. 28-30, 2023, at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls. It will be the richest rodeo in South Dakota history. “The event rodeo fans will see in 2023 in September is like the AFC, NFC championship games in football or the pennant race in baseball,” said Rorey Lemmel, the general manager of the Cinch Playoffs in Sioux Falls. “It will change the landscape for who is the world champion.” The Cinch Playoffs provides one last opportunity for ProRodeo athletes to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. The contestants will include the top four finishers from each event at the Cinch Playoffs in Puyallup, Wash. earlier in September, and the top eight out of the standings of the Playoff Series presented by Pendleton Whisky. “Rodeo tradition runs deep in South Dakota, some of our biggest legends in the sport are from South Dakota and some of our oldest rodeos are in South Dakota,” PRCA CEO Tom Glause said. “But we are super excited to bring the biggest rodeo in terms of payout to Sioux Falls in September of 2023.” South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is thrilled to have the event in Sioux Falls. “Freedom and rodeo go hand in hand, and that’s why South Dakota is becoming a destination for major rodeo competition,” Noem said. “I’m excited to celebrate our state sport with the final qualifying competition before the National Finals Rodeo.” In addition to bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing and bull riding, breakaway roping will be held at the Cinch Playoffs.

NO. 13 TURNS LUCKY Edens Wins Puyallup and Ropes Her First NFBR Qualification By Ann Bleiker

I n just her second year as a WPRA member, Jordi Edens has earned her first Wrangler National Finals Breakaway Roping qualification thanks to two defining moments during the 2022 season. The first came during the Fourth of July week - known as Cowboy Christmas in the rodeo world - when Edens, of Gatesville, Texas, won the most money of any breakaway roper, collecting $15,156. Two months later she turned in the biggest win of her young ProRodeo career at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup, which also served as the Cinch Playoffs in 2022. In just her first trip to this northwest rodeo, Edens left town with $15,700 and a solid spot inside the Top 15 with only three weeks left in the regular season. “It was an awesome experience,” exclaimed Edens about her big win in Puyallup. “The breakaway ropers are so lucky to be included in the Tour Finale and rope for equal money! I was excited to rope there and winning it and securing my spot to the finals was the cherry on top!” Although Edens came to Puyallup in the top 15, she considered herself still on the bubble as she was No. 13 with two world champions Jackie Crawford and Sawyer Gilbert behind her in the standings. “I’ve kind of been toward the bottom of the top 15 the whole year, so going in I knew I needed to do well to take some pressure off,” noted Edens. “I don’t usually get nervous, but I’d be lying if I said when I backed in the box for the final four that I didn’t have a few butterflies!” Edens competed in the first performance and finished in a three- way tie for first with a 3.1-second run, along with Beau Peterson and Tacy Webb. She would finish just out of the money in the second performance with a 3.3-second run, but her two head average time of 6.4 seconds was enough to place her third in the first group to advance to the semifinals. The top four in the average in both sets advanced to

a clean-slate semifinals. Once in the semifinals, Edens knew it was make or break and she came out swinging. She won the semifinals in a time of 3.0 seconds to advance to the finals. And, winning the semifinals meant she would go last in the finals. The big money was paid out in the finals with the winner being awarded $13,000. That was the prize Edens was looking for and she went out and roped it. Peterson, whom Edens had tied with in the first round, was second in the semifinals with a 3.2 second run. Therefore, Peterson roped right in front of Edens in the final round and the two previous ropers had received no times, so Peterson set the bar with a 3.7-second run. Edens roped her calf in a clean 2.8 seconds to capture the win and the big payday. “That rodeo was kind of like a tournament style, so you had to rope all your calves,” stated Edens. “I was fortunate enough to draw really good ones and my horse was en point and just made it easy for me.” The rodeo takes place during the Washington State Fair and for contestants to get from their parking area to the arena they have to make their way through the large crowd, which can turn into a rodeo in and of itself. “I’ve always heard about walking up to the arena and going through the people, but I didn’t realize how cool and kind of crazy it was until I was the one riding my horse through them,” recalled Edens. “Judy (her horse) spooks at everything so I’m sure for the bystanders it was pretty comical watching me come through!” Edens will now follow in her father’s footsteps of competing at the NFR. Tommy qualified for the 2007 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in team roping and roped with Coby Jones. Jordi Edens was laser focused on the task at hand when she backed in the box at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup. Edens’ final run resulted in a 2.8 second run to win the rodeo and a spot in the Wrangler National Finals Breakaway Roping in Las Vegas, Nov. 29-30. Photo by Kent Soule

Jordi Edens will look back on 2022 the two major milestones that earned her a spot at the Wrangler NFBR. The first came during the Fourth of July week winning more money than any breakaway roper with over $15,000 and then her $15,700 payday in Puyallup, Washinton during the Cinch Playoffs. Photo by Rod Connor


Finals in Las Vegas at the South Point Arena and Equestrian Center, Nov. 29-30. The 20-year-old Texas A&M Commerce student is looking forward to competing. “Over the summer I didn’t feel like I could rope enough calves fast enough, so I’m looking forward to the five rounds a day. I think if you get on a roll, it’s really good but if you get snake-bit you just want it to be over with. I’m gonna have to get better at forgetting a bad run faster, since they all happen so fast. But other than that, I’m super excited to rope that many calves in a day,” said Edens. No matter the outcome in Las Vegas, Edens will always have her two defining moments of 2022 to reflect back on. “The Fourth of July run was a fairytale. I’ll be lucky if it ever happens

like that again. Puyallup was one of those rodeos you just want to do good at in that atmosphere! I have been so blessed this past year it almost doesn’t seem real.” Jordi Edens was all smiles collecting her new hardware to add to the family trophy room. In just her first trip to Puyallup, Washington, she returned to her home in Texas at the breakaway roping champion of the Cinch Playoffs. Photo by Rod Connor

“It’s pretty awesome to follow my dad’s footsteps in making the NFR. I know it was one of his dreams for me and I’m glad I’ve accomplished it,” said Jordi. “He’s my number one fan and I’m glad we can each have an NFR back number now. “My parents are why I’m able to do this. This summer one of them was always with me. My mom takes great care of my horses and is the reason they stay so good. My dad does the entering and gets us where we need to be. It’s a family affair.” Family will also be her biggest cheerleaders during the 10-round Jordi Edens upon realizing she just pocketed $15,700 in Puyallup and secured her spot in the NFBR for the first time in just her second year as a pro.

GREEN MILE Gartner Grabs Pendleton Round-Up Barrel Racing Title By Tim Gentry K acey Gartner didn’t grow up in a rodeo family. She had just started running barrels in high school when the Walla Walla, WA cowgirl got to see the first barrel race run on the Green Mile, and it left quite the impression. Just down the road

from her hometown of Burbank, WA, and the scale of the humongous pattern there was “unreal to watch” and made her wonder what running there – maybe even winning there – would be like. In the years that followed, she spent many happy hours in the stands, watching her husband, Chance, compete in the steer wrestling and taking in the spectacle and history that makes Pendleton such a special place and the Round Up such a unique event. It’s been special to her for a long time, but it took a truly special mount to bring her down into the action: Rebel Look (JD Look x Jo Jos Dasher x Twaynas Dash). Nicknamed Mercedes, this built-from- scratch, 10-year-old mare was enough to give Gartner the itch to start rodeoing again and feels just as at home in Pendleton as her rider. “She loves that place,” she said of Mercedes’ attitude about running at the Round Up. “She runs so hard and so free. She’s honest, she’s confident. She doesn’t balk at anything. She’s accomplished a lot there” It was like that from the start. Their very first run there in 2018, Mercedes carried her to a spot in the short round and second place in the average. Funny thing is that was her rookie year in the WPRA, and momma wasn’t crazy about taking her “green six-year-old” around the longest pattern on the Pro Rodeo circuit. Good thing her husband, Chance, does their entering for them and signed her up even though she specifically said not to. 2019 brought more success with a win in the short go and another second in the average. 2020’s Round Up was cancelled due to the pandemic, and 2021’s tipped barrel cost her the fastest time in the long go. Her mantra all week was to just leave the barrels up. There’s no need to try and wrap them when you’ve got straight-line speed like Mercedes does.

From second on a late drag in Monday’s slack, the pair laid down a 28.57 second run on the Green Mile to set what would hold on to be the winning time of the long go. One of three runs in the go to break 29 seconds, the others came from California Circuit Director Katie Pascoe with a 28.84 and Teri Bangart with a 28.89. Saturday’s final round had her again running second. Nearly three tenths clear of second place, a clean and tidy run was probably all it would take to win the average. The pair started their run on the left and made a clean turn on the first barrel, but sprinting across the grassy infield Mercedes found even more speed than in their first run. Gartner was a touch on the breaks, and it cost them a stride or two past the second barrel. Making the third turn and letting Mercedes go with the wind, she felt like they had still clocked, but would it be enough? Their 28.54 was nearly identical to their first round time, but not as quick as it could have been. Leia Pluemer was third out and turned in a blazing fast 28.38 to capture the short round and the quick time of the week, but it was not enough to catch Gartner and Mercedes’ 57.11 on two runs. Pluemer took second in the average with 57.53, and Cheyenne Allan rounded out the top three with a 57.63 on two. “I knew this year we had an opportunity,” she said, with obvious gratitude. “I had a lot of confidence in her and I thank God she had a lot of confidence in me to help and we finally got it done.” Heading into the Columbia River Circuit Finals, the pair are in second place trailing Allan, who just happens to be the Pendleton Champion both years Gartner finished second. Chasing her down and making it to the NFR Open would the perfect way to end a great season. 20 years in the hair styling industry as both a stylist and now co- owner of a salon have allowed her to build a loyal clientele who work around her rodeo schedule. All it takes is a few 12-hour days to make continued on page 23 Kacey Gartner had just started running barrels in high school when she watched the WPRA barrel racers run on the Green Mile and it left quite an impression on her. In 2022, Gartner added her name to the elite list of those who have been talented and lucky enough to win the prestigious Pendleton Round-up Title. Photo by Rod Connor

Kacey Gartner had dreamed of one day winning the barrel racing title at the Pendleton Round-up and that dream came true in 2022. Gartner and Mercedes captured the title with a two run total of 57.11 seconds, ahead of Leia Pluemer in 57.53 and fellow Columbia River Circuit competitor Cheyenne Allan in 57.63 seconds.

A PROMISE IS A PROMISE Fortier Finishes Atop Leaderboard, Wins Pendleton Breakaway Roping Title By Joe Kusek S he wasn’t going to go. But a promise is a promise. And that kept promise became the biggest payday in Jacey Fortier’s professional roping career.

Fortier, of Billings, Montana, threw two loops in 6.0 seconds to win the breakaway roping at The Pendleton Round-Up, Sept. 14-17. She was 3.3 seconds in the long round and won the Finals and title with a throw of 2.7 seconds. Fortier and her horse survived almost a near fall in the first round and some anxious moments during the week to pocket $8,515 in the grass at the famed Pendleton Round-Up Arena. “It’s pretty sweet,” said Fortier of the victory. “I never dreamed we would be breakaway roping at this level. I remember dreaming about roping at something like this and now it’s a reality.” A week before, Fortier was in no mood to make the 12-hour drive from her home to Pendleton, Oregon, one of the last big rodeos of the 2022 season. She had struggled after the Fourth of July, backing off an ambitious schedule to focus on Montana ProRodeo Circuit events. “I was doing so bad,” recalled Fortier. “After the Fourth, I couldn’t get anything rolling again. I thought if I started winning again, I would go back out again.” Flagging at a roping event before Labor Day, she crossed paths with team roper Travis Tryan, an 11-time qualifier for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Fortier showed Tryan some videos of her breakaway roping runs. “You’re swing is messed up,” he told her. The two worked on being tighter with her swing. “My loop was huge. I was hitting posts and panels. I was dropping my arm to the side and not getting any power,” said Fortier. “Travis has helped me so much with my roping and so has his father Dennis (an NFR qualifier).”

Fortier won at Killdeer, North Dakota but “Drew a good calf and chucked it into the dirt,” she said about her performance at White Sulphur Springs, Montana. Pendleton was off her schedule. Besides, she went last year with no success. However, Montana team roper Caden Camp had asked Fortier to haul his horse to Pendleton. “I’d better go if I told Caden I would haul his horse out there,” she said. Fortier, eighth out in slack, came close to a wreck. “The calf I drew took a step to the left and turned back right,” said Fortier. “Then, he turned left and kept going left. My horse almost went down trying to get me to that calf. I was kind of scrambling. My horse took care of me. Then when we caught him my horse almost went over backward.” Fortier was aboard Teddy, a horse her mother Joy Benson purchased off the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in northwest Montana. Benson trained Teddy for barrel racing, along with using him for team roping and ranch work. Not much is known about Teddy’s lineage. Benson turned the reins over to her daughter in 2018. “He worked phenomenal,” said Fortier, who also works for the Northern Rodeo Association and clerks horse sales when not roping. “No matter what, he always gives 100 percent. He gives me everything he has. He does everything he can to make it work for me. Pendleton showed that.” Fortier headed back home and could only wait as the rodeo progressed. “No way was I going to make it back for the short round,” she thought. “If I do, I’ll turn around and head back. We do it all the time.” Just in case, Fortier had the trailer hooked up and her clothes packed. “I kept wondering, ‘Do I take off or not?’ ” she said. “I didn’t want to jinx myself. Friday rolls around and I told my mom, ‘If I’m going, so are you and you’re driving.’ Mom had never been to Pendleton before.” continued on page 23 Jacey Fortier of Billings, Montana, had the biggest payday in her professional roping career at the famous Pendleton Round-Up winning the title with a 3.3 second run and a 2.7-second run worth a total of $8,515.

GOAL ACCOMPLISHED Griffin Gets Big Win in Fort Madison By Kristen M. White E mily Griffin has a lot going on. Between an almost 2-year-old daughter and more than 30 head of horses at her home in Saint George, Kansas, where she and her husband AJ run Rafter EP Performance Horses, it’s a wonder Griffin finds time to rodeo. But she does, and her trip to the Fort Madison, Iowa, rodeo was definitely worth it. Her single run there in 17.56 seconds was enough to win her the rodeo, and a check for $3,337.

“My husband used to bulldog, and the first time he went to Fort Madison, he won it, so he always told me it was a good rodeo,” she said. “He kind of talked me into it – and now I’m really glad that he did!” Griffin ran Famous French Moon, or Belle as she’s known around the barn, toward the bottom of slack. When she clocked the nice time, Griffin was pleased, saying it felt like a good, solid run, but she knew there were still a lot of other ladies to run in the performances. “It felt like a really good and snappy and quick run. I was just happy with my horse,” Griffin said. “My time held through the first two performances, and so on that last day we were definitely checking the standings.” She continued to hang on, with Stephanie Fryar finishing second in 17.76 seconds. Griffin thanked the committee for doing a great job with the ground, making it super across the board for everyone’s horses.

Belle was unstarted when Griffin bought her as a 2-year-old. As a youngster she was a bit antsy, so Griffin said they turned her out for a while, and about 18 months ago brought her back into the picture. Now, as a 9-year-old, she’s proving that she’s ready for the rodeo scene. “We walk around a lot to warm up. She likes to hang out before we run, and now she’s pretty calm and cool,” Griffin said. “Younger, she was a little bit of a handful, but she’s turned out to be a pleasure to be around. She’s a competitor for sure, very serious.” With this year’s goal accomplished, Griffin is excited to see how they do at the circuit finals, and said her next big goal is to get into Denver. She said it’s “such a cool rodeo that I’d like to get in there and see where it goes from there.” She and AJ are plenty busy with Rafter EP Performance Horses. They started things with two nice mares, and bought a stallion in 2017 that complimented them well, then began adding to their broodmare band. Griffin said their first full crop is now 3 and she’s excited to see what the horses do. “Our Stallion’s futurity year got kind of crazy with me having a baby, so he didn’t have a huge shot and went straight to the rodeo,” she said of their stallion NotEvenIfTheresAFire. “He pulled a check at his first amateur rodeo, so I’ve started taking him to pro rodeos and he’s plugging right along. I hope he makes a good backup.” She and AJ stay busy with all the horses. She is an equine veterinarian, and although she isn’t working at a practice right now, she gets “plenty of time working on our animals!” Emily Griffin got a big win aboard Famous French Moon the first part of September at the Tri-State Rodeo in Fort Madison, Iowa. Belle, as she is known around the barn, carried Griffin to the winner’s circle and now looks to carry that momentum into the Prairie Circuit Finals. Photo by Emily Hilton

Griffin’s biggest goal this season was to make her Prairie Circuit Finals, and she’s done that. She started running last year at some rodeos, about six months after her daughter was born, just seasoning her horse and getting some experience. “That mare that I was running, she really kind of came on this year the week after Dodge (City), and decided she was going to be a rodeo horse,” Griffin said with a laugh.”
