Scott Byrne, bullfighter extraordinaire, will be retiring from the pro rodeo arena at the top of his game.

At press time, Scott had protected the best bullriders in the world twelve times at the CFR. Bullfighters are voted in by the men they protect, and chances are Canada’s most important rodeo could very well be his swan song this November.

A bullfighting pro for 20 years, the Prince Albert, Sask., born talent graduated at the top of the class from his uncle Ryan Byrne’s bullfighting school. His skills have been featured at top rodeos on both sides of the border, including eight appearances at the PBR Canadian National Finals and even more appearances at the Calgary Stampede. For many years, Scott called Wainwright, Alta., home to cut down on rodeo travel time.

Now a third province gets to claim the legend. Scott and his wife Raegan own 4B Ranch & Equestrian, a horse training and boarding facility outside of Brandon, Man. They have two sons, Brayden and Dylan.
