MINOT, N.D. – Being a tie-down roper is a long-time tradition for South Dakota’s Trey Young, who earned his second trip to the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo by winning both the Badlands Circuit year-end title and the RAM Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo at the State Fair Center Oct. 6.

Young’s grandfather Jack and his dad, Doug, were tie-down ropers. Doug also used to compete in the Badlands Circuit.

Trey Young, of Dupree, S.D., finished the regular season at the top of the circuit’s 2019 tie-down roping rankings with $21,822, a lead of more than $9,300 over the next competitor. Then he proceeded to win the RAM BCFR.

He won the third round of the four-round event and placed in every other round for a final score of 37.0 seconds on four head, adding another $7,516 from the RAM BCFR to his 2019 circuit total. As a result, Young will make his second trip to the RAM NCFR in Kissimmee, Fla., April 2-5. He also qualified for the RAM NCFR in 2017.

Young said he did well at some circuit rodeos in the winter and continued a strong performance during the spring and summer.

“I did not win many rodeos, but I was able to place almost every weekend,” Young said.

Young arrived in Minot with Fozzy, an 11-year-old sorrel that he purchased as a 3-year-old and the horse on which he has had success. Fozzy is not without his own Badlands Circuit notoriety. He was named the circuit’s Tie-Down Roping Horse of the Year in 2018.

Not only does Young ride Fozzy but Young’s fiancée, Maddi Huber, has ridden Fozzy as a breakaway roping horse. 

“After the wedding he will be sort of a family horse,” Young said. “Maddi has been in law school for the past three years, but when she is out, she may ride him in some more competitions.”

Other winners at the $199,000 rodeo were bareback rider Jamie Howlett (338 points on four head); steer wrestler Joe Nelson (20.2 seconds on four head); team ropers Turner Harris/Jade Nelson (23.8 seconds on four head); saddle bronc rider Delbert Garrett (336.5 points on four head); barrel racer Amanda Harris (55.05 seconds on four runs); and bull rider Chance Schott (255 points on three head). The all-around cowboy was Eli Lord ($4,175, steer wrestling and team roping).
