Rides Mulberry to Fourth Round Victory
By Ted Harbin
12/6/10The last time Angie Meadors
competed at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo,
she was 20 years old and had been on the grandest
stage in the sport five times already.
Now she's back in the saddle inside the Thomas &
Mack Center, and she's got some things to prove.
After she knocked down barrels in each of the first
two rounds, Meadors had more to prove. On Sunday
night, the Blanchard, Okla., cowgirl posted the
fastest run of the fourth go-round in 13.68 seconds
(the arena record is 13.52 seconds), earning her
first paycheck of this year's championship worth
"It feels great to be back here," said
Meadors, who last qualified for the Wrangler NFR
in 1996. "The only thing that changed is the
money is better and I'm old enough to gamble."
Some may think she gambled a little Saturday night
when she switched horses, backing off her stalwart,
Fantasia Fame, and opting Mulberry Canyon Moon,
a 7-year-old gray mare she calls Mulberry. Fanny
has been the main horse that guided Meadors to this
"I was having a hard time getting Fanny around
the third barrel," she said. "Both my
horses are very nice horses.
"She's a very fast horse. I've been on a lot
of great horses, but she's one of the greatest athletes
I've ever swung a leg over. She's by Marthas Six
Moons, which is the same sire to Lindsay Sears'
It was another blistering night in barrel racing
at the NFR. Sydni Blanchard of Albuquerque, N.M.,
and Kelli Tolbert of Hooper, Utah, were just a hundredth
of a second behind Meadors, while Sears of Nanton,
Alberta, Lisa Lockhart of Oelrichs, S.D., and Christina
Richman of Glendora, Calif., rounded out the top
six with 13.78s.
Meadors plans to ride both her great mares through
the final six rounds, knowing full well which animal
handles what conditions better.
"I was getting on the bottom of the ground,
and I thought (Mulberry) would handle the ground
better than Fanny," she said. "If she
gets her run, she's going to win first."
