It was a stormy evening in Arrowwood, AB last night for the EPB event by the name of the Buffalo Hills Bull Riding put on by Nate Gardner and his great committee and volunteers. Brett Gardnier Announced for the third year and Dean Phillips & Jo Anne Armstrong did the music.
The bulls were great as always brought by the Rafter G Cattle Company, Wild Hoggs Bucking Bulls, Sawyer Bucking Bulls, Flying High Rodeo Co, and also the Vold/Robinson team. Nate Garder’s 3-7 Slammer was retired last night after a great ride by Tanner Girletz on him to the tune of 87 points to win the Long Go. Ashton Arychuk finished second with an 85 on Slider also of Nate’s. Tanner re-entered and also won third with an 84 on Nate’s bull he now owns by the name of Right Round. Come to think of it now almost all of the money was won on Nate’s bulls because Cole Collins finished 4th in the long round with an 83.5 point effort on Unlce Moe.
I finished 5th in the Long Go with a 82 on the Wild Hoggs Bull Scube Steve and Dustin Wynyk rounded out the short round contenders with a 79 point effort.
There were some great matchups in the Short Go with Tanner Girletz on 58 Back on Track Well Tex and Ashton Arychuk taking on Rebel Energy. I ended up being the only one to get a score in the short go with an 84.5 on Jett of Lorne High’s with a questionable amount of my foot in my rope by the end. Turns out karma must have caught up to me as you can see in the video below.
Thanks to the Arrowwood committee for the great event once again though we look forward to it again next year!
