Sharp and Shel­ley Bank $37,700 in Stephenville

Spin to Win Rodeo - - At The Barrier -

On a hot, muggy day in mid-July, friends and Shel­ley Pro­duc­tion em­ploy­ees Jett Sharp and Ethan Shel­ley won big at the Stephenville, Texas, Heart­land #11, bank­ing $18,850 per man for a time of 32.91 sec­onds on four head.

“Jett and I have been rop­ing to­gether for a while, and ev­ery time we have been up for big money, I have missed for him,” Shel­ley said. “I was hop­ing this time would be dif­fer­ent.”

On what Shel­ley said were “the ugli­est heel loops in his­tory,” he still caught two feet, and were third team back. So they just had to be pa­tient and see what the top two teams were go­ing to do. As he got off his horse, Shel­ley was get­ting ready to go flag and went and asked Sharp what hap­pened. “We won!” Sharp said. Shel­ley couldn’t be­lieve it. “I said, ‘You’ve got to be kid­ding me,’ but it was no joke,” Shel­ley said. “His brother, Aaron, let me ride his good heel horse, a horse that has won more money than any mem­bers of the fam­ily com­bined. Jett spun a re­ally good steer, he made it easy for me. $37,700 is by far the big­gest check I’ve ever won.”
