Curtis Cassidy wins first Redding (Calif.) Rodeo title: Steer wrestler Curtis Cassidy has dominated the sport for more than two decades, but he has never won a championship. The cowboy from Donalda, Alberta, has competed at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo eight times and won more than $2 million in ProRodeo.
Be that as it may, Cassidy had never brought back home the title from the Redding (Calif.) Rodeo preceding maneuvering into the crate at the Redding Rodeo Grounds on May 19, during the 75th commemoration release of the Season finisher Series occasion.
Cassidy won his first Redding title in less than ten seconds after scoring two steers. Cassidy finished his steers in 9.7 seconds, winning $4,355 and placing in both rounds.
Cassidy, 44, laughed and said, “I’ve actually never won any of these California rodeos.” I’ve placed well, but I’ve never been first.”
He made a joke, “It’s a start.”
With a time of 4.7 seconds, Cassidy finished third in the first round of the rodeo.
He made the observation, “I had a little black steer in the first round, and it was just a textbook run.” They’re new, so you needed to stay there and score them out. I had a great time.
“He was just a good, honest steer,” she said. “He was not a lollipop.”
Even though Cassidy owns Tyson, the three-time and current AQHA | PRCA Steer Wrestling Horse of the Year, he borrowed a ride on Eddie, the horse of fellow Canadian Tanner Milan, while Tyson took a break in the home pasture. Since riding Eddie to a reserve finish in Denver in January, it was his first time riding him.
He stated, “I was the high money winner there, I won about $10,000.” He’s a good fit for me because I get along well with him.
“Perhaps I ought to ride him more,” he kidded. Milan gave initiation on board a pony of Cassidy’s.
He stated, “They’ve won a pile on them since we’ve matched him up with Eddie.” “We started using him last fall.” The speed match between the haze horse and the dogging horse is crucial. The dogging horse becomes even better with the help of a good haze horse.
In the evening performance, Cassidy won the average with a run of five seconds flat, which did not exactly go as planned.
“He didn’t leave like I expected, I needed to get it, so we broke into the chute, and I ran him further down than I needed,” he said. ” He handled well, however, once I got my hands on him and my feet touched the ground.
Cassidy went on to say that he enjoys running fresh steers because of how unpredictable they are.
“It’s generally fun, you have no clue about the thing they will do.”
The Redding bump, which places Cassidy 36th in the PRCA | RAM World Standings, should help him improve his position as he returns home for some time before the summer run.
He stated, “Hopefully I can get some things done around the place because this is about the only time I’m home.” Until we leave for Reno, I’ll rodeo around my house.
