AIRDRIE, Alberta — On Saturday night at the Airdrie Pro Rodeo, steer rider Carter Sahli was transported to the Foothills hospital in Calgary by Stars Air Ambulance after being stepped on.

The current No. 1 man in the Canadian Pro Rodeo Association (CPRA) steer riding standings was struck in the chest by the hoof of the bovine he was attempting to ride.

Sahli, 15, sustained a bruised lung and was released from hospital on Sunday morning.

“We’re still coming for a Canadian Championship,” said Carter via text message through his father, Jeff.

A two-time Canadian Finals Rodeo (CFR) qualifier, Sahli has confirmed he will next compete at the Calgary Stampede on Thursday, July 12th, 2018 and is thankful for the calls and support of those concerned.
