Who thinks this is NOT going to be a good thing? Who is behind the money? Why does a Biden supporter, 700,000, so interested in mainstreaming the western lifestyle? Apparently tried to buy NCHA too.

TETON RIDGE ANNOUNCES THE ACQUISITION OF BETTER BARREL RACES AS PART OF ITS GROWING FOCUS ON WESTERN SPORTS
Barrel racers across the western sports industry scored a major victory today with the announcement that Better Barrel Races has been acquired by Teton Ridge, the new and rapidly growing Western culture brand founded and led by visionary business leader and Western culture enthusiast Thomas Tull.
The acquisition comes on the heels of Teton Ridge’s recent moves to bring The American under the growing brand’s umbrella. Teton Ridge aims to bring Western sports to the national stage and to share the unique experiences and values of the iconic Western culture with audiences across the country and around the world.
As an official sanctioning organization for The American, Better Barrel Races provides Teton Ridge and The American with a critical component that will help grow the annual March event, and provide ongoing continuity for the sport. Additionally, Better Barrel Races will benefit from improved capitalization, access to a broader and more deeply experienced financial and business management team, and an unprecedented opportunity for long-term growth.
The exceptional team currently managing Better Barrel Races, that to date boasts more than 150 years combined experience in the barrel racing world, will continue to work alongside the team at Teton Ridge to advise, consult and assist with the historic partnership in order to become an unrivaled powerhouse.
A sampling of the many ways competitors will see the benefits of this include expansion of the Better Barrel Races X-Tra program supporting local events across the country, expansion of the existing Better Barrel Races World Finals with significantly increased prize money, the addition of a handful of large-scale “regional finals” with divisional and futurity competitions and much more on the horizon.
“We are very excited about this opportunity, not only for Better Barrel Races, but specifically for our membership and the entire barrel racing community,” commented, Corky Barder, co-founder of Better Barrel Races. “As a part of the Teton Ridge family, we can grow our events and sport like never before, increasing barrel racing’s reach to new audiences and taking it to the next level with additional large-scale races, elevated prize money and so much more.”
In recent months, Teton Ridge has actively acquired multiple Western sports properties, as well as invested in high pedigree bloodstock for its planned equine breeding and training facility, located near Weatherford, Texas.
Integration of Better Barrel Races into Teton Ridge is expected to be immediate, so that qualifying events for
The American will not be impacted- in order to give riders a chance to make the final field at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on March 6th of 2022.

I agree...do not have a great feeling about this...kind of smell a rat. Supposedly pushing western sports and lifestyle, where there is patriotism and prayers honoring God in opening ceremonies....and yet throws money at Democrats/Biden/Clinton's who are hell bent on destroying our country. Something does not add up!!!!

My initial reaction was very similar to most of yours. OMG !! Then my senses started to come back to me I hope. First off we may benefit in huge proportion$ from this. They seem to have very deep pockets. I read comments all day that they donated to Biden and Clinton and whoever's campaign funds. Guess what, a LOT of corporations donate to BOTH sides of every election to try to get shown favor no matter who wins. That does not mean they align with the liberals agenda. It is the cost of doing business.  With all due respect, I think if you shared "their announcement" and are already bashing them on fb, you need to delete your posts. They can search and read every negative word you write. Who the hell would want to sponsor anything for a bunch of people bashing them before they ever set foot in the door? We can do better than this.  Come on people.  Keep in mind Destry Fleming, Corky Barder, and ?? started the BBR and they have worked tirelessly for years to build it up to the great association it is.  For them to jump through whatever hoops to have the qualifiers for the American Rodeo had to be a huge feat. Hats off to them and THANK YOU!!!  They have got to be exhausted and I know Destry's health has not been great the last few years but he keeps pushing through to produce big races and make big things happen for all of us crazy barrel racers.  The way I see it this was a golden opportunity for them to cash in on their hard work and get out. I would too.  We need to be THANKING them for bringing the BBR this far.    I believe a lot more barrel racers are chasing the dream to run at the American Rodeo than are actually chasing the NFR.  Thank about it and please delete all the negative until they prove you right or prove you wrong.

  HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of you.

I copied bits and pieces from an article on the owner from April 2021.  Makes sense to me a little bit but I am not sure how anyone that is business savy would have hedge a bet on Joe Biden.  

 

 

Like many other professional money managers, Tull is a big campaign donor. He has given $6 million to politicians over the last 15 years, one-third in the last year.

And like many such contributors, he hedges his bets, donating to both parties. In Tull’s case of late, he has balanced donations to Democratic presidential nominees with money to Republicans in Congress

So it was on Sept. 16 — two days after the PSERS vote — that he gave $711,000 to a campaign fund backing Joe Biden and $750,000 to a super PAC for U.S. Senate Republicans.

His people says he thinks of himself as a Republican, but not a Trump supporter, and as someone who sees divided government as a useful check on governance.

But lawyer Paul Ryan, vice president of policy and litigation at Common Cause in Washington, D.C., was skeptical about that. He sees a simpler motivation for big donors who give to both parties. “Access and influence is what they are buying,” he said.

Imagine the exposure barrel racing receive with the backing of a big time TV producer/actor.   I guess it remains to be seen if it will be a good thing or bad thing it sure as hell is going to be interesting.

And hello Y"all.

I have seen several comments on fb today speculating that they are spending all this money to "control us".   All they have purchased control of is the American Rodeo and the BBR. If they were to cancel both tomorrow, so what?!  Life and barrel racing would go on as it always has. They have zero control over the rest of the sport, just their events. Maybe they plan to incorporate some of the events into their Yellowstone show?  Who knows.  I think the political climate we are witnessing has everybody on edge and now we trust nobody.

Do you honestly believe that democrats do not/cannot share those values?  If that's how you believe then I agree with you that "something does not add up".

All these things are expected and typical of a person with this kind of money. Pelosi probably has a very generous resume on donations to the worthy causes of the world too. Trump, too. ALL the rich and powerful give huge amounts to charitable causes.

But that doesn't make any or all of them good people. 

I can understand the concern about his underlying motivations. If it's just to make more money then we'll all hopefully benefit from more and better shows. If there is another motivation (too many to even speculate) then maybe there should be concern.

I think it's just the way the world is now... people don't believe in good intentions anymore. I know I raise an eyebrow a lot more often than I use to and always consider there must be a motive. I've read a bunch of opinions and stories on Facebook today and I'd say more are leaning towards an uneasy feeling about it all instead of seeing it as a positive move for the industry.  Looks like it's going to happen regardless so I guess time will tell and we will find out. Hope for the best but be prepared for the worst is my motto lately

I'm skeptical. Tull sold his Legendary movie company to the second richest man in China for $3.5 billion. The Chinese have been buying up film companies left and right. Reason being is that if they control the movies, they can paint a better picture of themselves for the rest of the world to see. That was a quote from Forbes about the sale of Legendary for those of you that want to try and disprove me.

When the 6666 sold, Taylor Sheridan was the front man for an undisclosed buyer. Doesn't take a genius to figure out it's probably the Chinese. A lot of Chinese are obsessed with the Western lifestyle.

Teton Ridge are also corporate sponsors of the PRCA, PBR, AQHA, NCHA, NRCHA. The reining team they put in place is the elite of elite. The Run For A Million that Sheridan put together for the NRCHA has him competing in the non pro and Teton Ridge has horses in it. They are also buying up stallions and well known mares. If you think the sale of the BBR to them is going to benefit 5D Betty Barrel Racer, you're probably in for a rude awakening. 

My concern is that if this Western Lifestyle house of cards they're building comes toppling down, the impact on so many will be huge. You should ALWAYS look a gift horse in the mouth. You might decide to take that sucker home, but you'd better be fully aware of the maintenance required to keep it going down the road.

I have to agree with you here. I too, am skeptical. However I'm not high enough up on the food chain for it to really impact me, I think. Hardly consider myself a weekend warrior. But I still don't have warm and fuzzy feelings about all this for the "Western horse" industry as a whole. Just going to sit back and watch and hope all the skeptics don't get to say "I told you so".

If anybody read the latest release of the Barrel Racing Report this morning -  it states in the interviews that Teton Ridge is the owner of Babe on the Chase (Birdie) prev owned by Brittany Pozzi Tonozzi. They are also thanked by 3 VERY well known barrel racers for sponsorships. Including but not limited to Brittany Pozzi Tonozzi, Lisa Lockhart, and Hailey Kinsel.
