News & Notes from the rodeo trail

Matt Reeves was recently re-elected as steer wrestling event rep on the contestant executive council and Isaac Diaz is the newly elected saddle bronc riding event rep. New event reps will assume their duties April 1. 


Dinero, a versatile, reliable horse, passed away March 23. He was 25. The horse was ridden by Cory Petska, the 2017 team roping heeling world champion, and his wife, Sherry Cervi, a three-time world champion barrel racer.


“(Dinero) just started having some issues and we didn’t want him to suffer,” Cervi said. “Cory probably rode Dinero for three years. He won Salinas (Calif.), Nampa (Idaho) and numerous jackpots on him, and he helped him get to the Finals. He never rode him at the Finals. I rode him at the Finals in barrel racing in 2005. (Dinero) had a great personality. He was a real personable horse, was really gritty and tried really hard, it didn’t matter what event he did.”

In 2006 in Nampa, Petska, Walt Woodard and Richard Durham rode Dinero in the team roping short round before unsaddling him in order to re-saddle him for Cervi to compete on him in the barrel racing.

“He was a horse that it didn’t matter what you did, he tried,” Cervi said. “Everything was just another job to him. He was a super-talented horse. The horse I won my last two world championships on (in 2010 and 2013), Stingray, is by him. And Sister, Hailey Kinsel’s horse that she has won the last two gold buckles on, is by him.”

Dinero was 14.2 hands and weighed 1,250 pounds. Mel Potter, Cervi’s father, bought Dinero at age 2. He was buried at the family ranch in Marana, Ariz.


The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association is sensitive to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), especially with the recent positive cases identified in the United States. The PRCA felt it was critical to communicate and put some additional structure around its plans for the 2020 PRCA Rodeo season.

This is an incredibly fluid and dynamic situation. The PRCA is committed to being responsible, thoughtful and transparent in its work with the communities and its membership that are engaged.

The health and safety of athletes, officials, fans and event hosts is a priority. The PRCA is monitoring official information on COVID-19 from health authorities and assessing the possible impact on the ProRodeo family.


Ultimately this is not a decision of the PRCA. The PRCA policy, with our committees, is to continue to monitor the situation and to follow the advice of the CDC and directives from local public health authorities.


To help provide PRORODEO fans, members and athletes with information on the virus and how it is affecting our sport, the PRCA is maintaining a webpage with the latest updates. That webpage can be found at
