SD bull rider takes Xtreme Bulls title
CODY, Wyo. — Chance Schott from McLaughlin, S.D., had the biggest win of his bull riding career at the Cody/Yellowstone Xtreme Bulls on Wednesday night.
It’s a career that is just beginning in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, so the win was a sweet one that built the cowboy’s confidence going into the lucrative Fourth of July run of rodeos. Schott competed in the PRCA on his permit in 2020. He filled that and now is a full-fledged member hoping to finish 2021 as the bull riding rookie of the year. The money he won here will help him accomplish that goal. He is currently third in the rookie standings.
He arrived in Cody prepared to get on any bull that was by his name. That bull was MoBetta Rodeo’s Fred, a bull that had bucked off two riders in the PRCA previously.
“I got here and I didn’t know what bull I was getting on,” Schott said. “I saw the list and didn’t know anything about him. It didn’t matter to me. I came to ride.”
He’s had some success on the Xtreme Bulls tour previously and seen a title slip away as other bull riders got higher scores. In Cody he remained on top and left with $8,498. He’ll be back at Stampede Park July 1 to compete at the rodeo.
Second place went to Parker Breding, from Edgar, Mont., with an 87.5-point effort on MoBetta Rodeo’s Remember Me. That added $7,011 to the second-generation bull rider’s bank account. Breding is making a bid for his fourth Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualification after missing it by just one spot in 2019 due to injuries. He is currently seventh in the world standings.
Stampede Week continues in Cody on July 1 with the first of four rodeo performances beginning at 8 p.m.
The following are results from the Cody/Yellowstone Xtreme Bulls competition, June 29, 2021.
1, Chance Schott, McLaughlin, S.D., 89 points on Mo Betta Rodeo’s Fred, $8,498. 2, Parker Breding, Edgar, Mont., 87.5, $7,011. 3, Jordan Spears, Redding, Calif., 85, $5,736.
