Fun Facts Shane: Back in 2008, as an 18-year-old rookie, Shane won the Guymon (Oklahoma) Pioneer Days Rodeo. Very few people had any idea who he was and no one would have ever expected the young man from Louisiana to have the success in the arena that he has had and is having. Two years after that win, he qualified for his first WNFR. Three years of competing in the Thomas and Mack arena in Las Vegas and he got the gold buckle. He has 12 consecutive qualifications to his credit and two WNFR championships. He finished in third place last year and was the reserve world champion in 2019. For the past 13 years, he has also produced the Shane Hanchey Invitational Roping in Giddings, Texas where he now lives with his wife Taylor. Shane’s roping is two days of the best tie-down and breakaway ropers in the world and has become one of the most prestigious events to win. Taylor previously qualified for the WNFR in the barrel racing and made history this year by being among the ladies competing at the Wrangler National Finals Breakaway Roping held in conjunction with the WNFR.
