Shelby Boisjoli Talks Governor’s Cup and Fourth National Finals Breakaway Roping Qualification
Shelby Boisjoli is a three-time National Finals Breakaway Roping Qualifier and she is now, unoffically, entering her fourth as the No.1 ranked cowgirl in the World.
It was halfway through the summer run when Boisjoli set her sights on claiming the Cinch Playoffs Governor’s Cup and when she did just that on September 30, it was an emotional win.
With two broken barriers heading into the Eight-Man round, Boisjoli’s mental game came into play.
“I told myself just keep taking that start and if the calf leaves through the gate then it’s going to work. So I just tried to stick to the game plan, I tried not to back off,” she said.
Thanks to help from her husband, World Champion Tie-Down Roper Haven Meged, Boisjoli and her traveling partners, Bradi Good and Kendal Pierson, had their summer mapped out just right and all three ladies qualified for the NFBR.
“I think that we all love it. I think that if you’re going to go hard and if you’re going to be the best at what you do, you have to love it,” Boisjoi said.
The NFBR is set for December 5-6 at the South Point Arena and Equestrian Center and Boisjoli says she is not sure about her confidence but she does have a few lessons that she is taking from her previous trips to Las Vegas and working on a few things has she gets ready for this fourth trip.
