BY BRETT NIERENGARTEN

Rodeo Rapid City paid out more than $200,000 and debuted a brand new arena over the weekend.

In bareback riding, Garrett Shadbolt lead an impressive crop of cowboys with 89 points on Summit Pro Rodeo’s Game Trail. A total of six bareback riders rode for at least 84.5 points at the rodeo.

Shadbolt was the only outright winner in the roughstock events. In saddle bronc riding, Shorty Garrett and Riggin Smith split the title and in bull riding, reigning champion JR Stratford and Tristan O’Neal shared the top spot with 87 points apiece.

In steer wrestling, Blake Knowles set the mark at 3.8 seconds in slack on Thursday and no one was able to top him.

As for the roping events, Jake Cooper/Sid Sporer won with a 4.2 second and Dallen McIntire, a 22-year-old who had never won a professional rodeo, tied one in 8.1 seconds to win the second check of more than $1,000 in his career.

Finally, in a barrel race that was incredibly close for three days, Ari-Anna Flynn blew the competition away with a 13.05 second run in Saturday night’s final performance to win by almost two tenths of a second.
