Dinwoodie Moves into Top 10 in CNFR Saddle Bronc Riding

June 17, 2015

University of Wyoming saddle bronc rider Brady Dinwoodie is still waiting for that high mark that will push him over the top, but he can’t complain where he’s sitting in the average after two full rounds of competition at the College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR) in Casper.

The Griffin, Saskatchewan, transfer senior is just one of eight saddle bronc riders who were successful on two horses after the completion of two official rounds at this week’s CNFR in the Casper Events Center.

Dinwoodie scored just 61 points during Tuesday’s slack, but his two-ride total of 125.5 points puts him seventh in the average. If he has one more successful mark Wednesday night, the UW team member will be on his way to Saturday night’s short go.

Just the top 12 individual scores and times in each of the men’s and women’s events throughout the week advance to the championship round. Each contestant is guaranteed three full rounds of competition.

“Brady had another pretty weak horse. His horse got in three good jumps and then didn’t do much after that,” says UW Coach George Howard. “But, the good news is that only eight riders have covered after two full rounds. Brady is in good shape.”

The only UW team member to compete Tuesday night was steer wrestler Tylor Bond, who finished his third round, but did not fare well as his senior season came to an end.

Things looked good for Bond coming out of the box, but the steer “set up” and the Poke sailed over the top trying to catch the horns. He had a no time after posting an 18.3 on two head.

Earlier in the morning, the Avondale, Colo., senior posted a 10-flat score, putting him 8 seconds off the leader’s pace after two rounds of competition.

The Cowboys’ third CNFR qualifier, Brit Ellerman, and partner Trey Yates of Eastern Wyoming College, recorded their second no-time of the week in team roping during Tuesday’s slack. As the header, Ellerman, from Fort Lupton, Colo., lost his rope, which didn’t allow Yates to even attempt to catch the heels.

With no time recorded during the first two rounds, the pair is eliminated from a short go bid.
