PRESIDENT’S CORNER W hat a July it has been. Not only have the weather temperatures been record setting from coast to coast but so has the action inside the rodeo arena with our WPRA members. From record
time world champion Brittany Pozzi Tonozzi collected her fifth California Rodeo Salinas title this time aboard Babe On the Chase “Birdie.” A huge thanks goes out to all the committees that are dragging halfway through or raking after every barrel racer as these record times are showing the fruits of your labors. Also, thanks to those who have added breakaway roping giving our members more opportunities and fans another women’s event to watch. We had membership meetings at both Cheyenne and Salinas and had some very good feedback from our members at both these events. Some specific elements discussed surrounded the replacement rule concept, equal money timeline in the breakaway roping and discussion on the condensed drag rule. The WPRA Board of Directors are actively looking at all these elements so would encourage anyone that was unable to make these general membership meetings to contact your circuit director with your input and feedback, specifically with regards to the replacement rule as would like to get this implemented for the 2023 season. Speaking of membership, the WPRA continues to see a growth trend in membership. Last year we ended with a total of 3,206 members and through July of 2022 we are setting at a record with 3,606 members to date. Prior to the explosion of breakaway roping our numbers were solid at 3,118 in 2019. We thank each one of you for being apart of this Association and continuing to carry on the legacy the 38 women had only dreamt about when they created the Girls Rodeo Association in 1948. The next two months will be busy as yet another rodeo season comes to a close. Be sure to thank the committees that make it possible to do what we love to do.
times in Calgary to Cheyenne in both WPRA events, and new champions crowned at both, to a very familiar face in the winner’s circle in Salinas, July was one for the history books. The month started off with the famous time in rodeo known as Cowboy Christmas with WPRA Rookie Bayleigh Choate amassing the most money over the weeklong stretch of rodeos among all barrel racers with over $25,000. The young Jordi Edens on the breakaway roping side roped in over $15,000 for her Fourth of July stretch. We then welcomed two very deserving individuals (Ardith Bruce and Cindy Rosser) to the ProRodeo Hall of Fame hours before winners (Cheyenne Allan and Martha Angelone) were crowned at the NFR Open in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The following day Kassie Mowry raced her way to her first Calgary Stampede championship and put her in contention for a Wrangler NFR qualification in 2022. During the fourth round in Pool B, Mowry set a new arena record in a blistering time of 16.86 seconds ahead of Wenda Johnson’s 17.10 in that round. Mowry and Dona Kay Rule would later tie for the semifinal round win with another quick run of 16.95 seconds. Mowry would edge Rule in the showdown round to take the title stopping the clock in 16.97 seconds to Rule’s 17.11-second run. What a barrel race it was. Fans were then treated to great barrel racing and roping in Cheyenne and Salinas with more records set. Summer Kosel broke a 25-year record in the barrel racing stopping the clock in 17.02 seconds in the qualifying rounds (previous record was Kristie Peterson in 1996 with a 17.03-second run). This came one day after Peggy Garman set a new record in the breakaway roping in a time of 3.0 seconds. Two-

IN THE NEWS Charlene Jespersen Passes Away By Kendra Santos
West Coast barrel racing icon and National Finals Rodeo barrel racer Charlene Jespersen headed to Heaven on July 20, 2022. Charlene—who was, like her dear mom, Alma, a classy dresser whose signature competition attire often included chaps and leather gloves— packed a whole lot of living into her 86 years here, and was still running barrels at 80.
Charlene has been a Women’s Professional Rodeo Association member since the 1950s, and in fact carried card #31. The longtime California Circuit standout was part of a world-famous rodeo family based out of Hanford in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Daddy Hoke Evetts was one of the most colorful cowboy characters of all time, and was a wildly successful entrepreneur, auctioneer, cattleman and owner of the Overland Stockyards in Hanford. Hoke heeled for his son, HP Evetts, at the 1970 and ’71 NFRs. Momma Alma didn’t take up barrel racing until she was 40, but like Charlene ran flashy, fast horses into her 80s and often traveled with her dear daughter. Alma was a Senior Pro Rodeo Hall of Famer, and started
the great tradition of Alma’s Flea Market, which Charlene helped with. Charlene also worked at Hanford High School for 37 years. Charlene was a barrel racing institution. Her favorite rodeo was Salinas, and she and Sammy Fancher Thurman Brackenberry both barrel raced and team roped at Salinas decades before the start of the current women’s roping revolution. Charlene won the first barrel race held at the California Rodeo in Salinas in 1974, and had the trophy bit on her mantle to prove it. Charlene ran a stud she called Lotta Dollar in the 1960s, and oh how she loved that horse. She qualified for the 1974 NFR on one of Lotta Dollar’s daughters. That was a very special year for Charlene’s family, as little brother HP was crowned the 1974 World Champion Team Roper. Charlene, who was presented the 2013 WPRA California Circuit Pioneer Cowgirl Award, is survived by her husband, David Mueller; her sister, Tonja; HP, his wife, Stephanie, and their children; and countless cowboy and cowgirl friends. Rest in peace, classy cowgirl! We know Hoke, Alma and your beloved National Forest firefighter son Reg, who left this life way too soon, are thrilled to see you.

KEEP IT FUN Choate Collects Most Money Over the Fourth of July Among All Barrel Racers By Kristen M. White, photos by Jeremy Wombold T he Fourth of July run of rodeos can be a mixed bag. Contestants can drive a lot of miles or not so many, enter a dozen rodeos or just a handful – and they can win big or win very little. They’ll tell you they never expect to do well over
National Finals Rodeo in her first year. “Who doesn’t want to make the NFR, especially their rookie year? That would be so freaking cool!” the Fort Worth, Texas, cowgirl said. “If I was to make the NFR, Ponoka would probably be the rodeo that gave me that leg up and it’ll always hold a special place in my heart. “I was just having fun there. I didn’t take anything too serious,” she added. “My first run was the fastest and I didn’t know what to expect. I just wanted to make a businessman run … and Dash said no, we’re winning it!” Her time of 17.27 seconds held for the round win. She just edged Wenda Johnson in 17.31 seconds. And Choate said she knew she wanted to get back for the next round and do it again. “Sunday rolled around, and then I was in the top 12 shootout and then I thought, ‘Wait, I have to run again? I’ve never run twice in one day – what do I do?’” Choate recalled. She and Dash took another turn around the pattern and she said she couldn’t have asked for a more picture perfect rodeo. Choate won the second round in a time of 17.43 seconds, with Johnson hot on her heels again in 17.47 seconds. Then, in the showdown round, Choate stopped the clock in 17.39 seconds for that win too (Johnson finished fourth that go). The decision to only run in a few rodeos was something that Choate and Ann Thompson, who helps many contestants do their entering,
Cowboy Christmas. Hope, yes. Expect, no. Bayleigh Choate certainly didn’t expect to have a hugely profitable run, and she never expected she’d end up the big money winner for barrel racers. Yet that’s exactly what she did. Choate collected checks totaling $25,506, competing in just four rodeos. But the big one, the Ponoka Stampede, treated her very well and was enough to put her at the top for winners in barrels. Shelley Morgan had the next biggest haul with $20,352. It was a clean sweep for Choate at the Canadian rodeo. She won the first two rounds to win the average, and also won the showdown round. She and the horse she ran there, Dash (Hail to be Famous) couldn’t be beat. “It was kind of crazy,” Choate said honestly. “I never expected to do that well. I turned out of almost everything, and it was really good. I’m so grateful to have a good Fourth, especially being my rookie year. It was cool to see my name up there for a minute.” Oh yes – did we mention Choate is a rookie? With a healthy lead of about $20,000 in the rookie standings, Choate is in good position for that accomplishment. Now she’s got a new goal on the horizon, the
12 WPRA NEWS ADUECGEUMSBTE2R022021
handled it like a champ. After having run him as a futurity horse only 15-20 times before he got hurt, Choate didn’t know Dash all that well. He’d never run outside, and he’d only made a couple of pro runs prior to Ponoka. “Every run I make, I learn something new about him,” she said. “He’s the horse that I least expect to do well at rodeos because he’s timid and scared of everything, but if there’s one thing he knows, it’s barrels. I mean, my stirrup fell off going down the alleyway in the first run (at Ponoka)! I was shocked with the great way he handled it all.” Her other horse, Boozer (TJR Stinson Blue) was Choate’s first futurity horse. At the beginning of the season, when Choate was feeling pretty down, Boozer was there for her in a big way. “Rodeo had kicked my butt the first six or seven months,” Choate said. “I thought, ‘Why do I keep doing this? I’m a crazy barrel racer over here, and I just keep going.’” She talked to a friend – after hitting a barrel at a rodeo – and the friend told her to keep her head up, noting that sometimes it just takes a single rodeo to turn a season around. “Five minutes later, the WPRA called and said a spot in Rodeo Austin had opened up and could I make it?” she said. “I drove all the way to Austin and ran Boozer and he stepped up. We did well in the long round and won the semis. He threw two shoes in the finals, but I was so thankful. That rodeo really did turn around my season!” Choate says she is definitely a goal setter – originally aiming for the Rookie and now eventually shooting for the NFR. Sitting top 10 in the world (as of publication) she’s definitely got a good shot.
made. Originally Choate was entered in a lot more places, but she decided she wanted to stay up north, so she turned out of quite a few. “My horses were liking the cooler weather, firing harder and not so drained from the heat. And they were working well so I didn’t want to put the extra miles on them,” she said. “I thought I’d go to these four, not try to break my neck to get somewhere, just let it be. And it worked out.” Choate cashed checks at two of the other three she ran at – picking up $3,647 at Williams Lake, BC, and another $557 at Raymond, AB. While Choate is a newbie in the WPRA, so are her horses. She says they’re “just babies, and we’re just winging it. Rookie on rookie!” She does her best to make it fun for everyone. Take Dash, for example. He suffered an injury and was originally going to be out for about eight months, but she and her family felt like he wasn’t quite ready, so they gave him two years off instead. Originally Choate planned to introduce him to pro rodeo slowly, but then she didn’t have much time and “just threw him to the wolves.” He WPRA Rookie Bayleigh Choate decided to spend her Fourth of July in Canada and what a profitable decision that was for her. Choate dominated at the Ponoka Stampede winning the first two rounds, the average and the showdown round to pocket $21,302.

“After Austin, my goal was top 30 so I could get into some of the big rodeos next year. I crept my way up and when I was in about 22 nd , I thought I’d go for top 15. I mean, what do I have to lose?” she said. “If you just focus so much on making money or winning, it’s not even fun anymore,” she said. “Who cares if you win or pull a check if you’re not having fun? You’re going to burn out your horses putting so much pressure on them and yourself.” With Choate’s talent, her positive mindset and a couple of strong horses in the trailer, it’ll be fun to watch where rodeo takes her next. Bayleigh Choate and Dash raced their way to the top of the leaderboard for most money won over the Fourth of July. Now with a sizeable lead in the Rookie of the Year standings, Choate has her sights set on running down the alleyway at the Thomas and Mack at her first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. She is currently ranked 10th as of August 1, 2022.

ROPING THE CASH Edens Top Roper During Cowboy Christmas By Joe Kusek, photos by Robert Rosales J ordi Edens stood by the curb, patiently waiting for her ride. She had places to be. The Texas teenager scanned the busy Denver International Airport traffic as other vehicles came and went.
“My goal during the Fourth was to catch everything,” Edens said. “It didn’t matter the time. Just catch every calf.” Edens began her “Cowgirl Christmas” with a victory at Oakley, Utah, placed in two rounds and third in the average at Prescott, Arizona, and finished with a victory at Belle Fourche, South, Dakota. Edens also earned some money at Killdeer, North Dakota. “I was kind of hoping to be the high money winner,” said Edens. “That was a goal I kept to myself. It’s kind of cool. “I didn’t think it would happen this year.” Her multi-state adventure included long overnight drives, vehicle trouble and catching rides with other competitors. “I’m pretty laid back. I go with the flow,” Edens said of successful roping among the chaos. “Everything happens for a reason.” Edens opened her Fourth of July sprint with a throw of 2.0 seconds during slack at Oakley. “I didn’t expect to win,” she said. “I figured there were a lot of performances after, so many good ropers left to go. That 2.0 happened to stand. It kept me going.” She pocketed $6,387 – her biggest check – for her quick work. Edens and her mother Lori drove all night to Prescott. There, Edens
Edens’ ride was easy to spot. It’s not very often a large pickup hauling a horse trailer maneuvers its way through the crowded arrivals area. “I don’t know how he did it. I was just glad to see him,” said Edens of her father Tommy, who was doing the driving. The unexpected airport pickup was just one of the many segments of Edens’ successful Fourth of July run. Edens, who turns 20 on August 13, was the high-money winner among the WPRA breakaway ropers during professional rodeo’s lucrative money opportunity over the Fourth of July known as Cowboy Christmas. Edens, of Gatesville, Texas pocketed $15,156 to vault into the top 15 of the WPRA world standings. Taylor Hanchey, of Carmine, Texas was second with $12,629 while reigning world champion Sawyer Gilbert, of Buffalo, South Dakota was third with $11,431.

caught a ride to Killdeer with Lari Dee Guy. After roping at Cody, Wyoming – where she was 2.0 but broke the barrier – Edens jumped in with Amanda Coleman, of Stephenville, Texas and McKenna Hickson, of Lipan, Texas to compete at Mobridge, South Dakota and Belle Fourche. She was 2.4 at Belle Fourche for $4,426. Edens rode her backup horse, T-Box at Killdeer where the 10-year- old roan gelding helped her place 15 th . “I got him right before the Fourth. I didn’t get much practice time on him,” Edens said. Edens credits her two “gurus” for her 2022 success. “My mother races barrels and takes care of the horses. She’s our guru about that,” said Edens. “Whenever our horses need work, she is going to do it.” Her father Tommy, a former Wrangler National Finals Rodeo team roping qualifier, handles the competitive side. “He’s the guru about roping,” added Edens of her father, who also handles her scheduling. “He sees stuff that I don’t when I am
put up identical 3.5-second runs to place in each round and third in the average for another $4,343. Edens was aboard her primary horse Judy, a 13-year-old bay mare. The horse is registered as LA Dona Kitty out of Anna Wood and by High Bobcat. “She lets me do my job,” Edens said of her partner. “She lets me do what I need to do. It doesn’t matter if I have to be fast or just get a catch. “At Prescott, my first calf turned around on me and the second calf ran off. Judy let me make the run on both.” Preparing to leave Prescott, mother and daughter ran into trouble when Lori Edens put diesel exhaust fluid in the wrong tank. “She realized what she had done right away,” said Jordi Edens. The younger Edens grabbed a flight out of Phoenix with Jackie Crawford to Denver. Tommy Edens was able to find a mechanic in Prescott who repaired the vehicle and got Lori Edens on the road the next day. The plan was to have Tommy Edens meet up with his daughter in Colorado so the trip to the airport was a small detour. The father and daughter made the 432-mile trip north to Belle Fourche where Jordi Jordi Edens roped her way to the top of the leaderboard as the top breakaway earner over the Fourth of July with $15,156. She collected checks in Prescott, Arizona (shown here), Belle Fourche, S.D. and Oakley, Utah.
struggling. If I’m having problems, he sees it and can fix it.” The fuel for her Fourth of July fire goes back to 2021. A year ago, Edens came up completely empty during the same time frame. She went home and practiced every day for two weeks. Edens would win $12,000 at Cheyenne Frontier Days. “I learned this is what happens when you practice every day,” she said. “I learned you have to put the work in. I learned if you don’t put any effort into it, you’re not going to get anything in return. “I’ve matured with my roping. Last year, I would mess up and would still be thinking about it on my next run. This year, I’m more focused. Always move forward.” A two-time national high school runner-up for breakaway roping, Edens plans to attend Texas A&M Commerce this fall where she plans to major in real estate and business marketing. She previously attended Hill College. And she has already made one smart business decision. “We put the money in my savings account,” said Edens. “It’s been a good year.” Jordi Edens was hoping she would be the high money winner over the Fourth of July. In fact, it was a goal of hers that she kept to herself but was the driving force behind her focus during the first week of July. As a result, she has now put herself in position to earn a spot in the National Finals Breakaway Roping.

WINNING FORMULA Mowry Learns To Trust Emmett enroute to Calgary
Stampede Title By Ted Harbin, photos by Emily Gethke T here’s not much that turns Kassie Mowry’s focus away from training colts and preparing for futurities. She’s found it this year in two rodeos that count nearly $60,000 of her earnings: RodeoHouston and the Calgary Stampede. Mowry, of Dublin, Texas, had no intention of competing in the WPRA’s ProRodeo system much this year. It all changed when she raced her way to a second-place finish in Houston in March. That cash advance propelled her into a trip north of the border for the 10-day stampede, where she took advantage of every opportunity and walked away with the biggest prize available, the $50,000 check provided to the winners of each event. In the process, she and Famous Ladies Man left Alberta with $64,500 in earnings, with all but $25,000 counting toward the world standings – all money earned in the preliminary rounds will count toward a National Finals Rodeo qualification, but only half of the Showdown Round earnings are allowed. “I think he loved the energy of that arena,” Mowry said of Emmett, a 7-year-old bay gelding by Dash Ta Fame out of Lady Perks. “The crowd was really loud, and he thrives off that. He’s also very good in high-pressure situations, because he stays so focused. “He’s very versatile. I can say that in a lot of places. He is very good about making adjustments. With the excitement and the crowd being so loud, I think he knows it was a high-pressure situation, and he just fits right in.” Running in Pool B of the two-pool, tournament-style format, Mowry and Emmett were clocking well; they finished third in the opening round before winning the second, pushing their earnings to $9,000. A tipped barrel in the third round offered up an opportunity for Mowry to learn something about herself and her mount, and they went back to work. “I feel like I didn’t trust him running up to that barrel,” she said. “I asked him to start the turn too soon. I was let down with myself after
that. I knew I needed to come back and place to make it on to the short- go. I didn’t want to make him run in the Wild Card Round, because I didn’t want to put any more runs on him than I needed. “I focused on getting him to that barrel, not weaking and trusting him.” It paid off with a Calgary Stampede record 16.86-second run to win the fourth round, carrying the $14,500 she’d earned into the final two runs of her week in the Great White North. “After that, I just decided to trust him,” Mowry said. “I just told myself, ‘Don’t get in his way.’ ” The trust comes with run after run together, and that’s something the two have done over the last few years. But she also has several other young horses she rides, trains and needs to get ready for their own competitions that pop up. In fact, she’s about to the teeth of her futurity season, so her schedule is busy. She knows she needs a minimum of 25 rodeos in order to be NFR eligible. As of July 18, she was seventh in the world standings with a little more than $78,000 in the bank that counts toward the world standings and another $35,000 that doesn’t. She has 14 rodeos she has attended, so she will need a few more to make the 25 minimum and she may need to add to her overall amount if she’s going to play on ProRodeo’s biggest stage in December, but she’s taking it all in stride with a horse that can help. “Emmett is an incredible athlete,” Mowry said. “He’s got really quick feet and can really run out, too. It’s a good combination. He’s always focused. He’s got a lot of natural work and rate to him. Besides that, his personality is such that he’s really a pesky horse, really playful. He loves to go and loves to do stuff. “He’s got a high energy level. It works good on the road. He gets off continued on page 29 Kassie Mowry made headlines at the Calgary Stampede in 2022. The full-time futurity trainer took time away from her young prospects to showcase Famous Ladies Man “Emmett” and showcase she did. The duo set a new arena record (16.86 seconds) enroute to their first Calgary Stampede title. Now with big paydays at Houston and Calgary, Mowry is in position for a third Wrangler NFR qualification
Kassie Mowry had a very profitable week at the Calgary Stampede pocketing $64,500 of which $39,500 counted to her WPRA world standings for the year, moving her into the Top 10 with two months left in the regular season.
