Then itstarted to sink in.”After qualifying for nationalsher sophomore year but failing toplace, Wimer said she had attendedthe awards ceremonies but neverthought she would someday be oneof the girls on that stage. “It was areally big shocker,” she said. “It’sthe biggest thing that’s ever hap-pened in my family.”And Wimer, the daughter of Brian and Wendy Wimer of ruralDiagonal, was quick to point outhow much she appreciates herfamily’s support throughout herrodeo career. “It’s a huge familysport,” she said. “You spend a lotof time together traveling to rodeosand during the rodeos, so you re-ally develop a special bond. Thiswas a good way to end it.”Along with the title of reservenational champion, Wimer wasalso rewarded with over $1,400in scholarships, three commemo-rative belt buckles and a custom-made horse blanket.Looking back over her rodeocareer, Wimer recalled all the timeshe had spent on her sport. She be-gan in rodeo six years ago whilestill in junior high. After she tookup cutting four years ago, she spentmany Christmas breaks, springbreaks and several extended week-ends training in Columbia withBeutenmiller. Beyond all the prac-tice, Wimer competed in 10 highschool rodeos plus an additionalsix National Cutting Horse Asso-ciation events per year. “I know Imissed out on some friend time,especially during my senior year,”she said, “but in the long run it wasworth it.”A 2013 graduate of Mount Ayrhigh school, Wimer plans to at-tend the University of Missouriin Columbia and major in animalscience. “Greg [Beutenmiller] toldme if I visited the campus I wouldfall in love with it,” she said, “andhe was right.” While she has noplans to participate in collegiaterodeo events, Wimer said shewill continue to be active in thesport via events sponsored by theNCHA. And since Beutenmillerlives so close, she will be able totrain whenever she wants.In the meantime, however,Wimer is spending the rest of hersummer working as a lifeguard atthe Mount Ayr pool. She’s easy tospot... she’s the one with that bril-liant reserve-national-champion-ship smile.
