Calgary Stampede Rodeo   1 comment

The Calgary Stampede is a wonderful event and was even better during it’s 100th Anniversary Celebration. It is one of the top ten rodeos in the world.

The Stampede opens each day with the Mounties

The presentation of the flags and the contestants (or should I say cowboys and cowgirls)

What a sight and an awesome feeling to be there!

The rodeo begins with Bareback bucking broncos

Calf roping

Saddled Bucking Broncos

Steer wrestling

Bull Riding

Ladies Barrel Racing

Everyone’s favorite Chuck Wagon Racing

Our favorite driver, Troy Flad, is in the number 1 lane.

Each afternoon, the competitors face off winning daily prizes that build toward Wildcard Saturday and Showdown Sunday.
