Ride ‘em cowboy

High school rodeo riders, ropers, and wrestlers competed at Spruce Point Park rodeo grounds on Sept. 11 and 12th.

This was one of the northern zone events in the summer rodeo circuit of the Alberta High School Rodeo Association. Competitors from all around the northern half of the province took part, including several from Kinuso and High Prairie areas.

The north zone has five rodeos in the fall and five in the spring. The top ‘point-getters’ go on to the provincial finals. Winners there go to nationals, and top performers there get to go on to an international finals rodeo, held in the U.S.

The Spruce Point high school rodeo followed one in Whitecourt and preceded an event at Teepee Creek.

Results for the ABHSRA events can be found online at albertahsrodeo.com.

Among the competitors in the Pole Bending was Kirsten Bruder of High Prairie.
This dummy calf was getting a workout from contests trying to hone their skills before entering the arena.
