Florida fans got great RNCFR experience

By ProRodeo.com KISSIMMEE, Fla. – With the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo, it’s all about the fan. The format is set up with an elimination component so that the original 24 competitors in each event are worked down to an Elite Eight and Final Four on the last night. Fans know what’s at stake with every ride and run, and that they are going to see the champions prove themselves right in front of them, by what they do in that final round of four.

Schneeberger ties RNCFR tie-down roping record

KISSIMMEE, Fla. – After a week of hitting the local tourist attractions with his girlfriend and three of his four sons, tie-down roper Jerome Schneeberger figured, “I sort of needed to win a big check.” Sometimes staring down a scary credit-card bill is all the motivation a guy needs. For Schneeberger, it was powerful enough for him to put down a 7.3-second run March 27 that tied the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo record held by Matt Shiozawa (2008, 2010), and allowed Schneeberger to take the lead in the second round and the two-head RNCFR average. If things fall right…

Beach Boy’ Clark breaks RNCFR record

KISSIMMEE, Fla. – It took Jesse Clark 24 hours to drive out to the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo from his home in Portales, N.M., and that’s a lot of time to think. His only company was Parker, back in the trailer, and the horse isn’t much of a talker. Clark passed the time with a lot of visualization. He’d never been to Florida, so he wanted to be sure he got his first look at an ocean and he wanted to be sure that he “stayed focused and took care of my business” at the $749,316 RNCFR. He daydreamed…

Idaho ropers look to weave web of RNCFR glory

KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Rob and Dan Webb had a good night at the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo March 25 – even putting themselves in position to make a little history – and they were fairly certain their dad, Kirk, didn’t get to see any of it on the WranglerNetwork.com webcast. “You can bet he was out feeding the cattle,” said Dan Webb, with a grin, “taking care of the farm’s 400 mother cows. Our mom (Stevia) might have watched us, but dad was pretty sure to be out there working.” That’s how it has always been on the Webb…
