TANA POPPINO - Professional Cowgirl

 

Tana Poppino at home in Big Cabin, Oklahoma - Click to enlarge imageTana Poppino became a full time professional barrel racer in 2003 after spending 20 years as a corporate marketing executive and competing in the sport on a part time basis. It took just three years for her to qualify for her first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (WNFR). She returned a year later, the same year that she also earned $100,000 by winning the prestigious Calgary Stampede rodeo.  She also qualified to compete in Las Vegas in 2010. The following year she qualified for the first ever Cinch Shootout in Houston which is a special competition for the barrel racers, bull riders, bronc riders and bareback riders who have won one of the ten largest rodeos the preceding year. She pocketed $10,000 for her second place finish.
During her career Tana has been the barrel racing champion at major rodeos such as The Ft. Worth Stock Show Rodeo, Greeley Stampede, National Western Stock Show Rodeo, Cody (WY) 4th of July Rodeo, Oklahoma State Fair, Louisiana State Fair and the Sand Hills Stock Show Rodeo (Odessa TX).
          Because of her extensive marketing experience, Tana realized that social media was going to have a significant impact on professional sports including rodeo and on the athletes who participate in these sports. Rodeo fans, committees and sponsors view social media as a means of communicating with and following about rodeo contestants. Tana has a popular FaceBook Fan Page and many of her posts are viewed several thousand times. She also has a page on LockerDome, a social media site that focuses on professional athletes. 
She has frequently been interviewed by local, regional and national magazines, newspapers and television programs. Tana’s husband Marty and her son Brodie are also rodeo contestants who compete in the steer roping event. Brodie qualified for the 2014 Wrangler National Finals in the steer roping event.
