There are a few changes to this year's finals taking place on Jan. 22 and 23 in Murfreesboro, TN.
As most of you know, this spring The Southern Extreme Bull Riding Association added Southern Extreme Bronc Riding.
Adding a second roughstock event allows SEBRA to maintain its strength in extreme sports while helping our producers compete with rodeo when committees and fair boards are shopping for events.
This helps us all have more events to attend, creating more opportunities for both producers and contestants to benefit from being a part of SEBRA.
As we head toward the close of this season, we have worked out how to incorporate the new events into the SEBRA National Finals: this year, we will be taking the top 35 bull riders, top 20 barrel racers and top 6 bareback and top 6 saddle bronc riders. The $25,000 added money remains the same for bull riding, $5,000 for barrel racing and there will be $2,000 in added money for each bronc riding event.
We know some of you will be disappointed that five bull riding spots have been eliminated in order for us to keep the Finals to a 2.5-
Because of injury and especially because of members who choose not to compete, we have had to reach as far as the 56th spot to fill the finals' roster. While there are never guarantees, the chances are strong that if you are currently in the top 40, you will be at the finals.
SEBRA has always made a decision annually on how many positions to take to the finals. This is the first year we have made a change in the number of bull riders since we began taking the top 40.
This decision has never had anything to do with personal gain for the association. We strive to make decisions that provide the greatest benefits for our members from contestants to producers and, as producers of the SEBRA National Finals, for the performance itself in order to ensure its continued success going into the future.
Keep an eye on the website for other important Finals information as the January date approaches.
