What’s That Bull for the High River PBR

HIGH RIVER, Alberta — These are my thoughts on a few of Saturday Night’s matchups for the High River PBR. The bull riding starts at 7:00pm with all tickets available at the door for $20 each.

See you in High River on Saturday!

Jordan Hansen vs. Harrison Flats

This is about as close as it gets to home now for Jordan since moving to Okotoks. Coming off a big year and qualifying for the CFR for the first time, he’s going to keep growing and getting better in 2014. With this being the first PBR Canada event of the year, he will be looking to get things started off right. He’s drawn a great bull to do so on in Sawyer’s Harrison Flats. This black and white horned bull has been ridden more than not in my memory. Most recently in the PBR with Tyler Thomson riding him for an 85.5 and a tie for the long go win in Kinsella on his way to the win.


Jesse Torkelson vs. Jiminy Hou

We haven’t seen this bull rode a ton since Kyle Lozier was 85 on him back in Wanham last summer. When betting on that bulls’ day there I would bet on Tork any day. With Kyle he spun left and faded a ways and hopefully he does the same on Saturday. I’d predict an 85 and potentially the long go win setting up Jesse nicely for the winter and another great year in the PBR in 2014.


Michael Ostashek vs. Doom and Gloom

I think one of the first PBR Canada events that Michael entered was Stavely and he put up a heck of an effort up against Girletz’s Idiot Proof there. Only a couple weeks later Tyler Pankewitz rode the same bull for an 87. Doom and Gloom is a black and white speckled bull from the Two Bit Nation that’s been the other half of some money won this season. I’m putting my faith in Mike on Saturday to start making his name in the PBR here in Canada.


Scott Schiffner vs. 2 Dark 2 C

This is a rematch from last month’s PBR Canadian Finals in Saskatoon where Scott was victorious for an 85.5 point score. Even after a buck-off in the second round there he came back in the Championship Round to take home the finals title and a new Ford F-150 courtesy of the SIGA 3D Bullriding Tour. Scott should be thrilled to have this bull and I’d say this will start off his 2014 the way he wants it with another great score. What I think is that Chad Besplug should be entered here in High River after he only beat Schiffner by $400 for the Canadian Pro Rodeo Championship about ten days ago in Edmonton. What do you say Chad? There is a buffer zone spot….
