As I sit here in Lacrete, Alta., looking at their great facility it makes me aware of how this sport has affected so many communities in a positive way. We as rodeo people don’t appreciate enough what these rodeo committees do to produce these great events for us to attend. We as contestants and everyone involved should make it a point to go talk with these people and thank them for the work that they do — that’s what makes them want to put more money in your pockets. We need more events, and by doing our share l think more communities may step up and do their share. I hope you contestants are winning and having fun doing it as enjoying yourself is a huge part of how it needs to be. We have been blessed with good rodeos and good weather at most places and consequently, that means more fans and more money for committees. The animal rights groups are not weakening so we can’t give them any ammo. Always keep that in mind as they are everywhere with cameras so please, do your part in helping out. The CPRA is operating fairly smoothly with only a few glitches that every organization has, but your directors are working hard to try and improve things and believe me, it’s not an easy task. We still have a lot to do but we won’t weaken and we are determined to make this outfit prosper. We all welcome your ideas so please don’t hesitate to let us know because it’s going to take us all to make this work. The stretch to the Finals is here; l wish you all luck and I’ll see you somewhere down the road. Thanks for everything you all do to help. — Terry Cooke, President Canadian Professional Rodeo Association Cell: 250-782-3344

The Short Round
By DIANNE FINSTAD and TERRI MASON
COWBOY AWARDS NIGHT This year, the CPRA has announced they are creating a fantastic opportunity for fans to meet their rodeo stars and to meet the men and women who bring you the nation’s top rodeos, and top rodeo stock. On the evening of September 9 at the River Cree Resort & Casino in Edmonton, the hard-earned back numbers for the CFR contestants will be presented along with their 2017 jackets. As well, the coveted awards will be presented for the four-legged stars, such as Bareback Horse of the Year, TieDown Roping Horse of the Year,
Horse with the Most Heart in Barrel Racing and Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year. The hard-working rodeo committees too will be recognized in their categories, plus many other awards, including the Rookie of the Year. The public is invited to celebrate with their high-ridin’ heroes, and tickets to the event are available on the Pro Rodeo Canada website at rodeocanada.com. —T.M.

WINSTON THEODORE BRUCE

Legendary cowboy Winston Bruce died July 10, 2017, at the height of a massive storm that knocked out the lights and for the first time in history, ended the chuckwagon races mid-stream at the Calgary Stampede. Winston won the Novice Saddle Bronc in both 1954 and ’55, the Canadian Saddle Bronc championship in 1957 and ’58, the bronc riding title at both Calgary and Cheyenne in 1959 and the World Championship in 1961. Winston was a 10-time National Finals Rodeo qualifier in saddle bronc riding. For 33 years, he served as the Calgary Stampede’s rodeo manager and arena director. He put on countless rodeo schools, mentored multi-generations of competitors and contract personnel and pioneered the Stampede Ranch’s Born to Buck breeding program. Besides his legion of accomplishments, two of the many things he will long be remembered for include his flair for riding flashy Appaloosa horses and his prodigious memory for names. Winston was the first Canadian inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colo., in 1989, the Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in Ponoka, Alta., in 1995, the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame in Red Deer, Alta., in 1998, the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum Rodeo Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City, Okla., in 2007 and the Appaloosa Hall of Fame. In 2005, the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association named him Cowboy of the Year. —T.M.

CHANCE BUTTERFIELD It’s been ‘the best of times, the worst of times’ for Chance Butterfield. The Ponoka steer wrestler was having a career year, sitting third in the Canadian standings, on his way to a first CFR qualification. But a serious accident in August at High Prairie sidelined him for the rest of the season. A bad combination of fireworks, a loose horse and jangly nerves on his own mare resulted in the 31-year-old being at the wrong end of a big kick to his chest. “I was just really, really short of breath, so I kind of knew from where I got kicked there was likely some kind of internal damage, and something that was putting pressure on my lungs,” described Butterfield. Quick action by nearby cowboys and a CT evaluation by local doctors led to Butterfield being airlifted to Grande Prairie for emergency surgery to remove his ruptured spleen. There were also broken ribs and a bruised heart. “All things considered, I got out quite lucky,” he said. With over $20,000 won, Butterfield has a CFR spot, if his body is ready. His wife Kenda, a physiotherapist, has been both coach and supporter in his personal rehab program. “It’ll be quite a recovery story if I make the CFR this November, but regardless, we’ve very blessed, just to be here today.” —D.F.

K-DAYS INAUGURAL RODEO The first annual K-Days Rodeo in Edmonton was a record weekend at Northlands Coliseum. All athletes, two- and four-legged, put on a great show and ensured even more fans will return for the Canadian Finals Rodeo this November. It was here that Straws Milan of Cochrane, Alta., tied a Canadian record by dropping his steer in 2.9 seconds. (The World record is 2.4 seconds.) The champions included BB—JR Vezain; BR—Sage Kimzey; SB—Zeke Thurston; TR—Dustin Bird/Russell Cardoza; TDR—Tuf Cooper; SW—Straws Milan and LBR—Crystal Christman. With more than $400,000 in the prize purse, plus a chance to compete for national titles at the Canadian Finals Rodeo, K-Days Rodeo added a bunch of jingle to the CPRA’s Cowboy Christmas. —T.M.

HEELING WHILE HEALING JARED PARSONAGE By DIANNE FINSTAD
HETHER IT’S ROPING CALVES IN THE BRANDING PEN, OR SITTING IN THE
MIDDLE OF A BUCKING BULL, YOU CAN COUNT ON JARED PARSONAGE’S AIM TO BE RIGHT ON THE MONEY.
The pro cowboy is a southwestern Saskatchewan success story. In a region where his family name is synonymous with ranching, he’s keeping up the quality cowboy reputation in the rodeo arena. Parsonage is a natural with a rope in his hand — not surprising since it’s a tool of duty around the 400-cow spread at Maple Creek, where the pastures are rolling, and the fences are few. Plus, he’s got rodeo in his bloodlines, since his dad Don still team ropes competitively and his mom Jill was a barrel racer (the 1994 CPRA permit award winner). Heck, the genetics go back even further. “My mom’s dad, he roped and steer wrestled,” explained Parsonage. “I definitely come from roper and bronc rider country.” But while tie-down and team roping are in his rodeo repertoire, young Jared got friendly with a bull rope at an early age, through junior steer events. “It was kind of like ‘well I put all this effort into getting good at this, I don’t really want to quit and start something else’. And I enjoyed it, so I stuck with it.” Parsonage, now 24, is poised to make his third appearance at the Canadian Finals Rodeo as one of the twelve best bull riders in all the land. That’s in spite of sitting out the richest run of the season with a broken jaw.
“June has been a killer on me. June gets me every year it seems like,” commented Parsonage. It was early June this year when Parsonage had an unfortunate encounter with a bull’s horn during a PBR Canada event in Quebec City. “It was kind of a mess, honestly. It cut me under the chin, and split through my gums where it broke (my jaw). But it didn’t knock me out though, luckily.” It took surgery a few days later in Calgary to reconstruct the jaw, broken in three places, with two plates and numerous screws. That was followed by six weeks of no chewing, and at 6’1” and 170 pounds, Parsonage couldn’t afford to lose the ten pounds he did. “It was hard, because you didn’t feel like there was much wrong with you. I sat around for a couple of weeks, but then I pretty much carried on with normal stuff, other than riding bulls. There’s tons of ranch work to do that time of year, so I was really busy.” That included plenty of local brandings, where he was happy to be heeling instead of wrestling calves. The cowboy’s first appearance back in the rodeo arena came at Ponoka, where he felt healthy enough to team rope with his neighbour (2007 Cheyenne Frontier Days Steer Wrestling Champion) William Beierbach, who helped launch him on the Canadian trail in 2014. They would have placed at Ponoka, if not for a broken barrier. Since team roping is now recognized, another title crosses his mind. “I definitely would like to get my AllAround cheques one year, but it’s hard
when you’re entering the bull riding up here, and in the States. It’s something I’d definitely focus on more, later in my career.” Even balancing the bull riding event choices isn’t easy. “I’d say I’m definitely a rodeo cowboy. I like the PBR’s, though, in the spring and fall. They’re really good bull ridings, and I enjoy going to them. I was having lots of luck at them this spring, when I got hurt.” After a six-week break from bull riding, Parsonage focused on securing his CFR spot. “I guess the good thing about a broken jaw is the parts you actually ride bulls with are healthier when you come back, than they were before,” he admitted. The Oyen White Lightning Cowboy Crunch proved that, when Parsonage double-entered, and collected $4,400 for placing second and fifth. Then there was a $3,065 hit from the rich new K-Days Rodeo, and $2,677 from his hometown Maple Creek Xtreme Bulls. Another $1,000 came from the Dawson Creek Stampede, where he also got his 15-rodeo count completed. “For what I’ve gone to, and for missing all those big rodeos, I’ve had a really good year,” said Parsonage. But his work isn’t yet complete, as he focuses now on the six bulls he’ll meet at Northlands Coliseum. “I keep ‘er pretty straight forward. I feel like I ride a lot of bulls, maybe not for the biggest scores, but I stay on lots. My goal always, going to the CFR the last couple years, has been to ride all six, and let ‘er play out from there.” c

HE RACE IS ON FOR THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS RODEO TITLE IN OUR COUNTRY — MISS RODEO CANADA.
Five contestants, of which all are already rodeo queens or princesses, will be judged on a myriad of tasks important to represent professional rodeo, namely horsemanship, public speaking, and rodeo knowledge. As well, each contestant will put her “best foot forward” in modeling and overall personality, poise and maturity. Miss Rodeo Canada 2018 is facing a rigorous schedule with over 400 personal appearances across the country and often, around the globe.

Kyle Bowers on Kesler’s 263 Starburst for 81 points in the fourth round at the 2016 Canadian Finals Rodeo
ON THE EDGE OF A RECORD KYLE BOWERS By TIM ELLIS
YLE BOWERS IS ALREADY IN A SELECT GROUP OF PROFESSIONAL BAREBACK RIDERS. HE’S ONE OF NINE COWBOYS WHO HAVE WON AT LEAST THREE CANADIAN BAREBACK CHAMPIONSHIPS SINCE THE CFR BEGAN IN
1974. HE’S ALSO ONE OF JUST A HANDFUL WHO HAS QUALIFIED FOR THE CANADIAN FINALS RODEO IN HIS EVENT AT LEAST 14 TIMES. IF BOWERS
“Bill Boyd holds the record for the most trips to the CFR,” begins Bowers. “I don’t even know what that number is but I don’t think I could ever match it. It was an amazing feat.” That record is 22 CFR qualifications for Boyd, who also won three Canadian titles. And, while the 40-year-old Bowers could be correct in assuming he won’t match that mark, there is another feat he could join Boyd in accomplishing — competing at the CFR 20 years after winning the Canadian novice bareback championship. “Pretty much that just means I’m old,” laughs Bowers, who won the first of back-to-back novice titles in 1997. “There are definitely guys who have done what I’ve done and a lot more. Guys like Don McLeod, I think he made his last CFR when he was 42 or 43. Just to be even named in such an elite group of athletes and cowboys is an amazing thing.” Bowers put himself in the CFR conversation, and the top 15 of the Pro Rodeo Canada standings, by winning the Elks Pro Rodeo in High Prairie, Alta., in early August with a flashy, 88-point ride. The victory came despite continuing to compete while dealing with a shoulder injury. “It’s a weird nerve deal that flared up last year,” confides Bowers. “They’ve told me it could be two years before it comes around and that it’s going to be a struggle.” But struggling with odd injuries is nothing new. “Early in my career, it was my elbow,” recalls the Drayton Valley, Alta., cowboy. “No one could diagnose the problem because it only hurt while I was riding. I had to get on Darrell Cholach’s old, really slow, hand-powered bucking machine to finally figure out my elbow was sliding out sideways from prying over my hip.” Then in 2006, I had problems with my pelvis. I was going to doctors, surgeons, sports medicine, voodoo doctors, whoever I could get to but nothing helped. It wasn’t until during the Calgary Stampede the next year, when I couldn’t get up after my first ride that Dale Butterwick took me from the arena to an osteopath. She worked on me every day in her living room until I was able to walk away after the rodeo without any problems.” A year later, Bowers won his second Canadian championship and added a third the next year — leading one to believe you can never count him out. But this time, there’s another factor. “You can’t beat Father Time,” admits Bowers. “But, we’ll see.” c
