Like kids on an Easter egg hunt, cowboys were running around the U.S. competing at five ProRodeos worth a collective $198,682 last week, and 10 cowboys moved up within the Top 15 thanks to their Easter Weekend earnings.
Veteran and rookie cowboys know it’s easier to maintain a position at the top than it is to play catch-up when trying to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Every dollar counts, and making the Top 15 early establishes a solid base and builds a cowboy’s confidence as the season picks up pace.
The following cowboys saw their position in the PRCA World Standings improve from March 27 through April 2.
• Josh Garner moved from 17th to 13th in steer wrestling.
• Taos Muncy moved from 17th to 13th in saddle bronc riding.
• Matt Reeves moved from 12th to 10th in steer wrestling.
• Steven Duby moved from 14th to 12th in team roping heading.
• Ryder Wright moved from 16th to 14th in saddle bronc riding.
• Trey Benton III moved from third to second in bull riding.
• Dustin Boquet moved from fifth to fourth in bull riding.
• Luke Creasy moved from 10th to ninth in bareback riding.
• Tyler Bingham moved from 10th to ninth in bull riding.
• Jesse Clark moved from 15th to 14th in tie-down roping.
With the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo kicking off in Kissimmee, Fla., Thursday, the outcome of that and other rodeos are sure to impact the world standings.
