Strathmore Stampede

Yesterday, Grant and Danielle, whom we are staying with, took us to the Strathmore Stampede. It’s like the Calgary Stampede, but smaller. Apparently, this is an advantage, as you’re a lot closer to the action.

The rodeo arena. We had great seats, shaded and close enough to the action.
Bucking horses. See the video above, too.
Steer wrestling! They have to jump off their horse and wrestle the steer to the ground. Best time were about 5 seconds.
Team steer roping. One gets the head and the second has to get the legs.
Show riders.
