Two Rimbey teens who competed in the Ponoka High School rodeo recently finished among the top contenders.

Jennifer Anderson, a 16-year-old Grade 11 student at Rimbey Jr./Sr. High School placed second in pole bending the first day and sixth Sept. 10.

She placed fourth in barrels on Sept. 11.

Anderson is pleased with her performance.

“It was exciting,” she said. “I was riding a friend’s horse, Girlfriend, and she ran really nice. I was really pleased with her.”

Anderson was the high point champion in pole bending at a high school rodeo in Bowden held earlier this year.

Levi Lloyd, a 17-year-old Rimbey Grade 12 student who won a saddle and a buckle at the Canadian High School Rodeo finals in steer wrestling, came in third in that event on the first day.

However, he did not fare so well in the saddle bronc or team roping.

“I got bucked off and I missed in the team roping. Hopefully I can pick it up at Tees.”

Kennedy and Samantha Smith, also from Rimbey, competed in several events, but did not place.

Mackenzie Braithwaite from Bluffton did not compete due to injuries.
