Brothers Band Together

Brothers Band Together

By Bobby Swofford

Ty Breuer is in first place in the Bareback riding category after the first day of the Old Fort Days Rodeo at Kay Rodgers Park.
It's not only that Breuer is on top with a score of 81 but the Mandan, N.D., native is also leading his younger brother in the event.
Breuer's younger brother, Casey Robert Breuer, just turned 18 and took part in his first competition of the summer.
The sibling rivalry has the potential to take off and it all goes back to the high school days. Ty Breuer was a senior when his younger brother was a sophomore. Both rode competitively that year and now the rivalry can continue.
"This was one of the first weeks that we have gotten to go together," Ty Breuer said. "It is fun. We did high school rodeo together so it is almost just like that."
Ty Breuer was able to show his younger brother how things are done on the big circuit, but he wasn't completely happy with his ride on the horse Spice Mix.
"That horse was real good," Ty Breuer said. "I've seen her before but I kind of screwed up there at the end. She felt real good but hopefully that was good enough to place. When (Spice Mix) came around I got weaker and she kept, not getting stronger, but staying solid and I didn't finish her like I should."
The brothers use each other for tips and the younger of the two said that is the biggest help to him.
"I just turned 18 so I was able to jump in with him," Casey Robert Breuer said. "It is a privilege being able to ride with the world's best every time you get on. It is just fun.
"He teaches me a bunch and I can tell him a few things. We go back and forth every time out."
Casey Robert Breuer didn't fair as well as he posted a 67 on the horse Queen of Diamonds. Though he is currently in seventh place after the first day, the younger Breuer said he isn't going to let one bad ride affect him.
"I didn't do the best like I wanted to but that is the way it goes sometimes," Casey Robert Breuer said. "You can always ride them better. I didn't them the best and that is what happens. The horse got the better end today."
Cole Cameron posted the best time in the steer wrestling event. Cameron, a Stephenville, Texas, native, recorded a time of 5.5 seconds. Casey Don Greer is currently in second with a time of 6.2 seconds.
Colt Fisher leads the tie down roping event with a time of 9.7 seconds, just one tenth of a second faster than Cody James.
Fisher and Len Dorman lead the team roping event with a time of 6.4 seconds, 3.6 seconds faster than the second place team of Brant Spurgin and Ty Ferrell. Spurgin and Ferrell posted a time of five seconds flat but had a five second penalty for roping just one of the back legs.
Michelle West, a Henryetta native, leads the barrel racing event with a time of 16.82 seconds. West leads Tana Renick by just .03 seconds.
Three time world champion J.W. Harris leads after the first night of bull riding after he posted a score of 83 on the bull Nightmare. Bryan Richardson posted a score of 80 on the bull Paintball. Only three of the 10 bull riders were able to last the full eight seconds. Harris has won the PRCA world championship each of the last three seasons.
