I can’t believe it is NFR time again. We left Texas on Friday, Nov. 30 and we stopped off in Arizona for a few days before heading to Vegas. I have been trying out a couple of team roping horses during my time in Arizona. I am really looking forward to this year’s NFR as this is the first time I haven’t been nursing an injury or going to physical therapy.
My team roping partner, Trey Johnson, and I have been working out a lot and I feel better than I have in years heading to the NFR. Many of you have heard of the Insanity workouts and the next level up is called Asylum and I have been doing that either at the gym or Kate and I have been doing at home. In between that, I have been riding the spur dummy, so I think I am ready to roll.
After the end of the season my family and I relocated to Texas to our new place in Huckabay and we love it. It is a small community with a great school that is consistently in the top schools in the state, so it is great for our kids. There are some other PRCA guys that live around here with kids like Brad Culpepper and Chad Klein, so the kids are adjusting well.
We have been busy getting the place in order. We have built an arena, thanks to my new sponsor Priefert, who has the best equipment in the business and some barns. It is coming along nicely but probably still have about a week’s worth of gates to put up. It has definitely kept us busy but I am loving the look of the place, thus far. The weather has been unbelievable, which has really helped get things up.
I have updated my schedule of all my appearances in Las Vegas during the Wrangler NFR and as you will see it is a pretty full schedule. Be sure to come by and say hi and support the sponsors that support me. I will update my site during the course of the 10 days as much as I can. If nothing else I will post my results. If you aren’t able to make it to Las Vegas be sure to catch all the action on Great American Country (GAC).
Many of you have become fans of my Facebook page but now I have entered the Twitter universe if you want to follow me there. My Twitter handle is @bobbymote.
Well I better run and get things finished up here so I am ready to hit the road running in Vegas.
Until next time – take it easy and be blessed,
