Montana State Women plan rodeo clinic at Copper Spring Ranch for Oct. 15-16

A talented group of contestants affiliated with the Montana State University (MSU) Rodeo program and its National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association Championship Women’s Rodeo team is holding a clinic on Oct. 15-16 at Copper Spring Ranch near Bozeman, MT.

Kate Sharon of Dillon, the defending national goat tying champion, Big Sky Regional All-Around champion, three-time CNFR qualifier and the MSU women’s coach, is the instructor for her specialty. She is currently a graduate student in the College of Agriculture’s Animal and Range Science Department. Along with her college accomplishments, she was National High School Rodeo champion in goat tying.

Robbi Nace of Roundup, the current national reserve champion and regional barrel racing champion, is teaching the barrel racing fundamentals during the two-day event. Nace has excelled in the barrel racing world and is considered to be an outstanding jockey and speedhorse hand. She is a three-time regional barrel racing champion and was the runner-up her senior year to the National High School barrel racing champion.



Cee Cee Tryan of Broadus is the breakaway roping instructor. Tryan, a standout roper during her college career, is considered by head coach Mike True to be the best female rope handler he has ever seen. During her college career, she was a three-time CNFR qualifier in breakaway roping and the Big Sky Region champion breakaway roper, team roper and all-around cowgirl. In addition, she was the NRA finals average champion, and an eight-time NRA finals qualifier.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. on Oct. 15. Goat tying instruction will be from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Breakaway roping instruction is set for 12:30- 3:30 p.m. and the barrel racing instruction runs from 4-6 p.m. on the first day.



On Sunday, goat tying instruction runs from 8-10 a.m., and the breakaway roping is being held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The barrel racing instruction is scheduled from 1-3 p.m.

The cost for goat tying instructions is $75 for two days and $50 for the breakaway roping and barrel racing sessions.

“We have been doing these clinics for a number of years with the top women’s team members,” True said. “Over the years, we have been getting a mix of upper grade school, junior high, and high school students from not only the region, but in some cases from surrounding states.”

“In the process,” he continued, “we have given the young women great input from some of the best cowgirls who are going to school or who have gone to school here and from some of our assistant coaches. In the process, the students have produced some amazing results.”

True said they were trying to keep the costs down so that it was affordable for the families.

In addition to upgrading the skills of the young contestants, the clinic serves as an outreach and recruiting tool while also providing a community service.
