PRCA 2010 Bucking Stock of the Year awards

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – Big Tex, the Classic Pro Rodeo gelding who took Tilden Hooper to a share of the world record with a 94-point ride this year and holds a share of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo arena record, has been voted the PRCA Bareback Horse of the Year over Moulin Rouge.

“This is a fantastic horse and has been for a long time,” Hooper said. “He’s always special. That day, with me, he was more special than he’s ever been. I did feel like I made a pretty good ride, but that day the horse was just phenomenal.”

Bobby Mote had a 91.5-point ride on Big Tex at the 2008 Wrangler NFR to tie the arena record, and this year, in addition to Hooper’s record ride in Silver City, NM, Clint Cannon, Jerad Schlegel and George Gillespie IV have all ridden the bay for 90 points or more.

“It’s very seldom you will find a horse that is that big and that athletic,” said Scotty Lovelace, owner of Classic Pro Rodeo. “If you compared rodeo to football, Big Tex is like a lineman who is tremendously athletic.”

Harry Vold Rodeo Company’s Painted Valley, a 1,400-pound paint stallion, was voted the Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year, and After Party, of the Silverado Rodeo string, was the Bull of the Year. After Party has never been ridden in 17 tries at PRCA rodeos. Judges have nine times awarded him a score of 24 points out of a possible 25.
