Danny Vandenameele of Langenburg, Sask., hung on tight until the eight-second whistle went for his ride in the bareback bronc riding event. He stayed on long enough to earn a score of 68 points, which unofficially was good enough for second place in this event during the Souris River Rodeo on Friday evening.
