Weather Guard World Standings Watch:
New Team Roping (header) leader
Kolton Schmidt, Barrhead, Alberta – $32,109
So its safe to quote @tedstovin on this one “#gocanada eh?” when realizing that Kolton Schmidt is now #1 Team Roping Header in the 2016 WEATHER GUARD PRCA World Standings as of press release time.
No stranger to the winners circle, 21 yr old Kolton has won the Canadian Rodeo TR title in 2013, last year won the National Intercollegiate TR title, and feels so good about his chances here in the U. S. he’s rumored to have bought a place in AZ, not far from his dad, which has perfect temperatures to continue to prep! Kolton is a 3rd generation team roper from Barrhead, AB, and understands the importance of good horses and good practice, as his dad trains them and grandpa built the covered arena back in Canada that made it possible for them to practice year-round.
Seriously folks, watch this guy! He had the total fastest time on the first day at the George Strait TR Classic against the best in the world and turns 22 between Reno Rodeo and Ponoka Stampede on June 27th.
