Fun Facts about Joey: She never really planned on competing on rodeo’s biggest stage, but rodeo committee’s adding breakaway roping to their roster changed her mind. The mom of three has been riding a mare Baybe Bullet, that they raised and trained. “Baybe” was selected as the breakaway horse of the year and is a full sister to the mare that Montana’s Clay Tryan has been riding all year. She and her sister Jessica both won national breakaway roping titles at the collegiate level. Joey used that opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Black Hills State University. She then transferred to South Dakota State and got her master’s in the same discipline. Her husband Taylor is a team roper. They started their family with a son Landon who is six. Then they added daughters, Carson, 4 and Shay who will be two soon. Joey was nine months pregnant with Shay during the 2020 WNFBR and WNFR. Jessica’s rodeo roots are deep. Her grandmother, Marilyn Scott from Wyoming was the first Miss Rodeo America.
