Shad Mayfield | Tie-Down Roper
Shad ‘Money’ Mayfield takes on the American Rodeo to defend last year’s champion title where he cashed in a check of $600,000.

Stevi Hillman | Barrel Racer
Just one year ago, Stevi Hillman and her big bay gelding, Cuatro Fame, more commonly known as Truck, claimed The American barrel racing championship for $100,000. With the change in arena and pattern setup and addition of an alleyway, Stevi finally got to call on her main mount Truck for the American for the first time. The pair was dialed in the final four round and blazed a 15.405 to take the champion title. Stevi Hillman has trusted the MVP brand for the past 7 years.
Stevi has used a wide variety of MVP products, but some of her essentials include Exceed 6-Way, Gastro-Plex pellets and paste, Air-Way EQ, and Breathe O2 paste.
Jimmie Smith | Barrel Racer
Jimmie heads to AT&T stadium for the American Finals for the first time qualifying through her Top 10 World Standings finish in 2020. However, Jimmie and her palomino mare Lenaontherocks, ‘Lena’ are no strangers to The American. Just last year they clocked a 13.662 in slack round at the stockyards to win and lead the pack who advanced to the 2020 American Semi-Final performances. Although they did not make it AT&T in 2020, they did embark on their first NFR qualification and brought home a go-round gold buckle win along with some killer runs. It is no doubt this team is going to bring the heat to AT&T.
Jimmie has been a MVP user for 15 years and we are so proud of all she has accomplished. Jimmie’s MVP essentials include Exceed 6-Way, Gastro-Plex pellets and paste, Re-Inforcer EQ, Air-Way EQ, and Breathe’ O2 paste.

Stetson had a solid 2020 National Finals Rodeo, earning the Reserve World Champion title and 2nd in the Average after a remarkable ten days! Stetson also borrowed his great mare Mable to World Champion, Jacob Edler, for the last five rounds knowing he was a contender for the world title, which speaks to the champion qualities both Stetson and Mable encompass.
