Rodeo Wrap Up Monday June 19th-Schuster Breaks Records And Wins Big

Schuster Breaks Records And Wins Big

After breaking the Arena Record at Calgary with a blazing 16.99, Tiany Schuster went on to dominate the entire rodeo and capture the title of Champion Barrel Racer, winning her the infamous $100,000 Calgary Stampede check. After a week of what became a knife fight of incredibly fast barrel racing, Schuster managed to come out on top, despite the bad weather in the final round.

Schuster and Stevi Hillman, of Weatherford, Texas, both set the pace in the round of 10 with identical runs of 17.17 seconds to qualify for the finals along with Emily Miller of Weatherford, Okla. (17.21) and Nellie Miller, of Cottonwood, Calif. (17.23). During the finals the times became incredibly close despite the looming weather, with Nellie Miller posting a time of 17.080 seconds, Schuster and her horse Showmance stopping the clock at 17.032.

“The rain started, and the wind was kind of coming in, and the horse just nailed that first barrel,” said Schuster, who commended Showmance for making up time after a little bit of a slip. “I think it made him madder. He just shot across there, and he just spun around that second barrel with such determination. I was just trying not to lose him.

“I kept my composure and said, ‘Just keep it together, girl,’ and he turned that third barrel. I really thought I was fighting for third place or second place because Nellie (Miller) made such a phenomenal run.”

Schuster was impressed that fans still stayed to watch her compete even though it was rainy and windy.

“They’re phenomenal fans, because they stuck it out through the rain and that thunder,” she said. “I think everybody was looking for the lightning strike. It was shady there for a minute. I probably would have hightailed it, because I’m a wimp.”

Tiany continues to hold first place in the WPRA World Standings, even though $50,000 of her total earnings at Calgary ($111750 approximately) do not count toward the year end. If it did, this would place her near the $300,000 dollar mark for the entire season. Incredible!

“With that $50,000 that didn’t count from Calgary, and the $12,500 from the San Angelo Shoot Out– man oh man, what records could be set if it would all tally up!” Tiany Schuster commented on her year end earnings.
