postheadericon Pogue a standout among RNCFR’s team ropers

EDITOR’S NOTE: You can also find this story on the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo’s website, which soon can be found HERE.

For much of his roping life, Charles Pogue was a fixture at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.

He qualified for the Big Show 15 times in his 25-year career, helped considerably by his great horse, Scooter, which was named the PRCA/AQHA Heading Horse of the Year six times. Of course, Pogue’s talent has always shown through.

In 1998 and 2000, Pogue and his heeling partner, Britt Bockius, roped in the NFR average titles. The last time Pogue competed in ProRodeo’s grand finale was 2003. That’s when the Ringling, Okla., cowboy decided to spend more time at home with his family.

Although he doesn’t compete nearly as much nationwide, he is still quite competitive. Pogue and his partner, Jett Hillman of Jones, Okla., have again qualified for the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo, set for March 29-April 1 at Jim Norick Arena at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City.
