for the Caldwell Night Rodeo

CALDWELL, Idaho — When the Caldwell Night Rodeo came to a close on Saturday night, $374,460 had been paid out to contestants, two nights of the rodeo were sold out and the other three saw near capacity crowds.

The success of the event has been building for the past 97 years and even cancelling it in 2020 didn’t keep the committee from working hard to assure that this was one of the best ever, for fans, sponsors and the contestants. The big winner in the D&B Supply Arena was reigning world champion tie-down roper Shad Mayfield from Clovis, N.M.

When Mayfield roped here in 2019, he had just finished high school and was making a bid for his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualification. That happened, then he competed in Texas at the NFR at Globe Life Field in 2020. He will defend his title this year in Las Vegas. When he entered Caldwell, he was fourth in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association world standings.



He came to Caldwell and competed in the first round on Monday, Aug. 16 during slack and won the first round. Then, he won the second round during a performance, won the final round on Saturday night and was the overall champion by nearly 2 seconds.

Mayfield had a total time of 23.1 seconds here to win $13,676. Marty Yates, of Stephenville, Texas, was second with a time of 25.0 seconds.



Stetson Wright was also dominant here winning the saddle bronc riding, bull riding and the all-around championship. Wright had a total of 176 points on two rides to earn $6,768 in the saddle bronc riding. He won the first round and tied for fourth on Saturday night to accumulate his points.

The bull riding here is one full round of competition. There were six riders that made it the full 8 seconds through five performances. Wright’s name was at the top of the leaderboard after the second performance and stayed there. He rode Powder River Rodeo’s Top Shelf for 92 points to add $7,670 to his checking account. He is the reigning all-around and bull riding champion in the PRCA, and is in the lead in the all-around standings again for 2021.

BREAKAWAY ROPING

This was the first year that breakaway roping was part of the professional competition in the D&B Supply Arena. There was a tie for the first-place spot and both women will get a pair of trophy spurs from the Caldwell Night Rodeo. Fowler, Colo.’s Erin Johnson and Loni Lester from Gonzales, Texas, both finished the rodeo with total times of 8.3 seconds on three runs for the championship.

Kaycee Feild from Genola, Utah, tied for the bareback riding win with his traveling partner Cole Reiner from Kaycee, Wyo. This was Reiner’s first win here and the third for Field.

Other champions were Clayton Hass, Weatherford, Texas, in the steer wrestling, team ropers Tyler Wade, from Terrell, Texas, and Trey Yates, from Pueblo, Colo., and barrel racer Ivy Saebens from Nowata, Okla.

Plans are underway for the 98th Caldwell Night Rodeo. More information is available at http://www.caldwellnightrodeo.com.
