2022 Montana Pro Rodeo Circuit Finalist Tiffany Ogren

Which horse(s) are you taking to the finals? Tesla. About $8000.

What is unique about their personality and what are their strengths? She is quiet and shy by nature, but can run and stop hard. She has big lower lip that she let’s hang down when she is relaxed. She has a big booty.

When did you start competing in breakaway?I probably started roping competitively in 1992.

When did you start competing in breakaway? We do not raise any horses yet. We purchase them and train them. We look for a cow or straight lines that can run hard.

What are your conditioning and workout routines for both you and your horse(s)? I do 2 to 3 high intensity workouts per week. I exercise my horses 3 to 4 times a week and rope on them 2 to 3 times a week.

When you're headed to the rodeo what do you listen to: inspirational podcasts, music, audio books?
I mostly listen to podcasts in music on the way to Rodeos, as well as my traveling partners.

Do you have a rodeo idol and reasons why? I have many rodeo athletes that I look up to for sure. The ones I look up to the most have not only great ability in the arena, but also character in and out of the arena.

Do you have favorite spots to stop at while on the road? Oh my goodness, I have a lot of favorite stops on the road: the old Mercantile at Grass Range, Wheat Montana near Three Forks, the Huckleberry Patch at Hungry Horse, Parkers restaurant in Drummond, Big Sky Grocery at Moore, any Town PUMP for a jalapeño cheddar corn dog and a ZOA energy drink.

Who do you travel with (including pets or companion horses) and in what kind of rig? I have two of the best traveling partners in the world: Shaylee Wahl, and Kelsey Ferguson. I love traveling with my family when they are able to come with me.

What are your favorite memories/highlights and obstacles you faced getting to the 2022 circuit finals? The biggest obstacle a face this season was finishing the seasoning process on a young horse. Highlights for me this season were getting to rope two head at Glasgow, the rodeos at Chinook and Bozeman, and the last rodeo at Big Timber to secure my spot on the right side of the bubble. Also, I’m so thankful for all the committees that included breakaway this year. Memories for me would include making it to slack in Cascade in time after roping earlier that evening in Chinook. Also, swimming in a lake with my traveling partners in a beautiful lake outside of Rapid City.

How do you juggle family life while on the road? I juggle family life while on the road by being intentional about family time when I am home. And lots of phone calls and texting.

What are your hobbies or other sports you compete in? I am in an ongoing heated competition of card games, connect four, and checkers. Mostly, I like to support my family and what they love to do.
