CNFR; What Happens When A Horse Gets Hurt

College National Finals Logo

At College National Finals Rodeo this week a rider from Douglas had some bad luck when her horse was injured going into the second day of slack competition.

Kelsey Scott is a break away roper who says luckily, because she’s from Douglas, she has back up horses available. But she maintains that camaraderie and care amongst college rodeo riders generally means if you need to borrow a horse, depending on the event, one will likely come through.

“I had ten different people offer to mount me on a different horse. The people in rodeo are very giving. They know that what comes around goes around and if they ever needed a mount, if they offer, they’re gonna get one.”

Scott says amongst competitors they share a lot of other information as well.

“We share horses, we write done calves, we tell each other what stocks gonna do. These people out here are best friends essentially.”

Performances are 7 pm through Friday.  It’s a big day on Saturday with Special Olympic riders at 9am, a ‘Foundation Style Show’ at the Parkway Plaza 11:30 a.m. and Grand Championship round Saturday evening, 7pm.
