Two-time world champion Brittany Pozzi won rodeos in Pocatello, Idaho, and Laughlin, Nev., over the weekend and pocketed an additional $8,800.
She wasn’t the only cowgirl to earn money in both cities, where both rodeos were part of the Wrangler Million Dollar Tour. Timi Lickley, who won the 2010 Reno (Nev.) Rodeo on her great horse, Rocks, finished in a tie for seventh place at the Clark County (Nev.) Fair and Rodeo and tied Theresa Walter for second place at the Western Frontier ProRodeo – the latter was her hometown rodeo.
Though she’s had some success on the great Hez All Rock, a 12-year-old bay gelding by the great sire Dash Ta Fame, she probably won’t chase her first qualification to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo; doing that would take her away from her Jerome, Idaho, home and her two young sons way too often.
No, Lickley is quite content to compete in the Wilderness Circuit and venture outside of its borders to those rodeos that best work in her schedule.
I got to speak to Lickley today in preparatory work for a Women’s Pro Rodeo News story I’m producing on Logandale and Pocatello, and I found her a wonderful subject. I hope she wins something big so I can focus a story just on her, her family and her background. I think most everyone would enjoy something like that.
