2016 NFR Barrel Racing: Round 10

NFR Round 10: Barrel Racing

How about Round 10 y’all?!! Insane right?!! It was a tough round with some really fast times! I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time cheering for all of the girls! A lot of them ran for broke and finished the NFR strong. We even had a tie for first! Crazy right?! I’m sad to say that the NFR is over and I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do with myself tonight! Anyone else in the same boat?

This year has been my favorite bunch of barrel racers at the NFR. In my opinion one of the toughest group of cowgirls and horses I have seen in a long time! The talent of both the horses and jockey’s was absolutely amazing and inspirational! I’m excited to see how 2017 ends up! We just have to wait about a year for the NFR to start again!

Thank you NFR grounds crew for all your improvements on the ground this year. It definitely made a difference with the times and the safety for the horses and riders.

Congratulations to Sherry Cervi and Jana Bean for winning Round 10!

Sherry Cervi and Arson

13.59 seconds won the 10th Round. Ironically two cowgirls tied for first! Sherry Cervi who was on Arson (Dash Ta Diamonds) and Jana Bean who was on Chick (Dashing Klee) won the round! They both were fast and furious last night. Since they split 1st and second place purse, Kimmie Wall came in 3rd with a 13.61 second run. Cayla Melby Small kept her momentum and placed 4th in the round with a 13.64. Another tie happened between Lisa Lockhart and Pamela Capper who split 5th and 6th purse with a 13.67! Like a said an exciting round with some beautiful runs!

2016 WPRA World Champion: Mary Burger and Mo!


Mary Burger finished her NFR strong and was able to hold her World title. It was a bit nerve racking to watch her hit a barrel in the 10th round last night. With Amberleigh Moore and Kimmie Wall coming in close to her in the standings, everyone wondered who would become the next world champion!


To her surprise and all those watching,  Mary Burger won her second World Championship at the age of 68 fair and square! What an inspiration and a wonderful accomplishment for a very humble cowgirl! Congratulations Mary Burger and Mo (Sadiefamouslastwords), you had an amazing year and a great NFR!  Mary won her first World Championship in 2006 on Rare Fred.

Amberleigh Moore, WPRA President Doreen Wintermute & Mary Burger

Another amazing accomplishment is that Amberleigh Moore moved from being 15th in the World to the Reserve World Champion. Amberleigh had an amazing NFR winning 3 go-rounds, placing in 5 other go-rounds, and also winning the Fast Time of the 2016 NFR with her horse Paige (CP Dark Moon)! Her fast time was in Round 8 when she tied the arena record with a 13.37 second run. I have a feeling we might see her again next year!
