Inaugural Elite Rodeo Association Finals Crowns Several Locals Champs!

Steven Dent's decision to choose bareback riding as the final event for the Elite Rodeo Athletes World Championship on Sunday afternoon at American Airlines Center proved a wise one.

It took a determined ride by Dent, the season points leader, and he was rewarded with a score of 86.0 to secure a victory over a field that included Kaycee Feild (83.50) and Bobby Mote (84.0).

Dent's ride, aboard Smack Daddy, propelled him to the overall ERA season championship as well.

"Competing against the best guys in the world every day makes you better," said the 30-year-old from Mullen, Nebraska. "I'm humbled and blessed to beat those guys."

Season point leader Lisa Lockhart gained the overall barrel racing title, but the weekend belonged to Dublin's Kassie Mowry. Mowry completed the course in a winning time of 12.793 seconds. It was only the second rodeo for her horse.

30 year old saddle bronc rider Cort Scheer, of Elsmere, NE also took home the overall ERA world championship with an 86 point ride on his horse, Bitter Robin. Scheer, the overall champ was edged out by Iowa’s Wade Sundell, 87-point ride for the night. Sundell, riding the horse they call “Out West,” would secure his 2nd place overall position in the ERA season standing with the win, though was still well back of Scheer for the overall title (1,000 points). Canada’s Zeke Thurston would place 3rd overall in the standings, the only Canadian to make the ERA’s overall podium in in the opening season.

The Inaugural Elite Rodeo Athletes (ERA) World Championship took place November 11-13 in Dallas, TX.
