The cham­pion of the in­au­gu­ral Swift Cur­rent Cody Sny­der PBR in 2011 was back in the win­ners cir­cle in 2015.

Scott Schiffner won his sec­ond Pro Bull Rid­ing cham­pi­onship in Swift Cur­rent on Satur­day night thanks to an 87 point ride in the Long Go Round to fin­ish best among the field of 30 com­peti­tors.

There were seven qual­i­fied rides by the 30 bull rid­ers, but when the top 10 com­peti­tors ad­vanced to the Short Go no com­peti­tor was able to hang on for eight sec­onds.

Schiffner pock­eted $5,506 for his win­ning Long Go ride, plac­ing ahead of Tim Lipsett who was even run­ner up with an 86 point ride.

"Af­ter I got off I kind of had a feel­ing I would be in kind of the top two or three," ad­mit­ted Schiffner fol­low­ing his eight sec­ond ride aboard At­ti­tude Dude from Bruce Sun­strom's Big Stone Rodeo Com­pany. "I've seen that bull quite a bit. That bull usu­ally goes to the right, and I was kinda think­ing about that. But he just stepped in the door to the left. Ei­ther way that bull turns he's just re­ally good, and kick­ing and spin­ning. He's one, if you can have a bull like that ev­ery­where you go you could win a lot of money."
