MERRITT, British Columbia — A legacy can be defined as a gift to a future generation. Ty Pozzobon’s life was a gift and his legacy has already made more of an impact on our sport than anyone in our generation. Potentially ever, it hasn’t even been a year since he left us.

There was nothing else more important in the year of 2017 in the rodeo and bull riding world than the life and sudden unfortunate death of Ty Pozzobon.

In October, Ty was diagnosed as the first case of CTE in a bull rider. Without the donation of Ty’s brain to science from his incredible family, none of this would have been possible.

Back in February, the Ty Pozzobon Foundation would be created with the support of Ty’s family and friends.

Since the creation of the foundation, the Canadian Pro Rodeo Sports Medicine Team (CPRSMT) more than doubled its presence at rodeo and bull riding events in Canada from 2016 to 2017.

It is the goal of the foundation to: “To protect and support the health and well-being of rodeo competitors inside and outside the arena.”

We all love you buddy and we miss you dearly. Thank you for being our friend.
