Rimbey Roughstock winter series finals drew to a close last Saturday night at the Agrim Centre, marking the end of a successful season.
Cory Glenn, who organized the series along with his wife Stacey, said the last event of the season was well attended.
“We had the biggest crowd ever, Saturday night,” he said.
The roughstock series has consisted of 33 weeks of practices and six jackpots, during which time more than 800 bulls and 500 horses were ridden.
“It’s been a heck of a go,” said Glenn.
Saturday’s jackpot saw Luke Ferber winning the junior bull competition with 72 points, followed by Cater Sahli with 70 points.
The novice horse category went to Chase Barass with 76 points, Jake Plotts with 74 points and Logan Elder with 70 points.
The winner of the bareback competition was Denton Metzger with 78 points, followed by Clay Deley with 75 points, Dylan Bilton with 74 points and Stawbs Jones with 74 points.
The winner of the saddle bronc was Kelsey Koening with 72 points.
The bull riding winner was Armondo Daville with 81 points and Justin Seimens with 73 points.
Glenn is grateful to all volunteers, stock contractors, pickup men and bullfighters who made the event possible. He also thanked Whitgan creations for making the championship jackets.
“Hope to see you all in the fall,” he said.
