postheadericon Riemer finds comfort in Guymon

GUYMON, Okla. – Reese Riemer isn’t afraid to admit that he suffers from a bit of claustrophobia.

That’s why the tie-down roper likes big, open spaces, like Henry C. Hitch Arena in Guymon. It’s home to Pioneer Days Rodeo, and Riemer finally captured the title.

“I remember growing up, we’d come and watch slack, and all the guys I looked up to were roping here,” said Reimer, 27, of Stinnett, Texas, which is just 77 miles south of Guymon. I couldn’t wait to rope here. To get it knocked out of the bucket list is pretty good.”

He won the second round and finished fourth in the third round after roping his calf Sunday in 10.6 seconds. His three-run cumulative time of 30.2 seconds was three seconds faster than the runner-up, Tom Pharr of Resaca, Ga. In all, Riemer earned $5,422.

“I came in here with the lead, but I wanted to be aggressive,” Riemer said. I didn’t want to sit back on my pockets and let it get away. I’ve been there before and tried to safety up, and it cost me. I wanted to go at it like I was coming from behind. I seem to rope better that way and have better luck.

“Once she took off and tried to outrun me, I just knew I needed to catch her and get her tied down.”

He is a two-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier who was the 2012 tie-down roping rookie of the year. Now he’ll have the Pioneer Days Rodeo trophy belt to carry with him as he tries for another trip to ProRodeo’s grand finale in Las Vegas.

“If I want to make it back to the NFR, I just need to rope aggressive,” he said. “The first two months of the year were real slow. Always around April when we go outside, it starts picking up for me. I get indoors, and it takes me out of my comfort zone. You get me outside in a big arena, and that’s my element, and I’m a little more comfortable.”

It showed Sunday.
