Second Annual Foothills Bucking Horse Futurity


Fourteen of the top stock contractors in the Canadian West brought three of their best young saddle broncs to the Foothills Futurity held in Cochrane July 11. Twenty-one hotshot cowboys got two trips and a chance at a big payoff. Nice weather helped to bring out the crowd to see the winning remuda (three broncs) of MX— Ranch win first and earn $4,800; Justin Toogood take second and $3,600 and Darcy Hollingsworth/Midnite Rodeo split 3/4 for $1,800. Four pickup men, Jim Kelts, Keith Pengelly, Phillip Schellenberg and Doug Borton were the safety team.

The winningest cowboy was Connor Reinhart; he won round one and two and was first in the average, taking home a cheque for $2,240. Second was Kain Loof, Jake Watson was third and Carl Green took fourth. Top Remuda went to MX— Ranch and the High Mark Horse was a split between Seniora and Thunderstruck.
