“Words can’t express what this can do for my life,” said 24 year old Reese Riemer, a tie-down roper from Stinnett, Texas, who tied his calf in 7.25 seconds to edge three-time world champion Tuf Cooper. “When I threw my hands up and looked at the clock – I’ll remember that moment the rest of my life.”
In just its second year, RFD-TV’s The American attracted a crowd of 42,563 into AT&T Stadium despite a winter snowstorm, and again offered the most money that rodeo has ever paid out in one day. In addition to $125,000 cash up in each event, the payoff included a $1 million bonus pool awarded to any “underdog” who performed better than the top 10 rodeo athletes in the world in each of the events. The dollars were to be awarded equally to all event champions if unclaimed.
Hi-Pro Feeds Equine Specialist, Matt McMillan was quick to congratulate Riemer for his win. “It makes us all very proud to see Reese wearing the Hi-Pro Feeds logo on his shirt. In rodeo, everything has to work perfectly between the rider and horse. It’s about the performance of the team, and they represent us so well as a part of our Hi-Pro Team.”
Proper nutrition and care are essential ingredients to a healthy and high-performing horse. Backed by experienced equine nutritionists, Hi-Pro Feeds offers a broad portfolio of equine feed products for every stage of the horse. “We are committed to working with leaders like Reese in the equine industry to optimize the performance of the horse no matter what age or discipline,” states McMillan.
