DENVER, Colo. (Jan. 21, 2020) —The National Western Stock Show Rodeo on Tuesday night is going to be among Taylor and Alishea Broussard’s favorite rodeo memories.
Taylor is a bareback rider from Louisiana who fell in love with a barrel racer from Oregon. They got married three years ago and now enjoy any opportunity they get to compete at the same rodeo. With Taylor packing a rigging bag and Alishea hauling horses, competing at the same rodeo doesn’t happen as often as they would like.
It happened in Denver and while the first round on Monday didn’t go as well as they had hoped, Wednesday night was one for the books. Taylor had the high-marked bareback ride of the evening at 87 points.
His ride aboard Cervi Championship Rodeo’s Baby Face also gives him a chance to be back here on Saturday. He had a 71 here Monday and is 17th in the overall standings. The top 24 advance to Saturday’s semifinals so he will have to wait and see how his fellow competitors do here over the next three days.
Monday was also disappointing for Alishea who hit two barrels in the cloverleaf pattern and had 10 seconds of penalties. She came back Tuesday night and set the pace with a 14.94-second run. Alishea won’t have another opportunity to compete here but does stand to get a nice paycheck based on her second-round performance. She currently has the fastest time of this year’s rodeo.
Wednesday will see two rodeos in the Denver Coliseum as a new group of contestants tries to be among the qualifiers for Saturday’s semifinals. Action starts at 1:30 and 7 p.m.
