Roy Honoured

The Calgary Stampede has named one heckuva draft horseman as one of the recipients of the 15th Annual Western Legacy Awards. Congratulations to Bruce Roy of Cremona, Alta., as one of the 2019 Western Legacy Award recipients.

A Calgary Stampede volunteer for 60 years, Bruce Roy has brought an international profile to the Draft and Heavy Horse community in southern Alberta. He is also one of the co-creators responsible for bringing in the Calgary Philharmonic to play during the six-horse hitch, creating one of the most popular classes among participants and spectators alike.

At 82 years old, Bruce continues to make valuable contributions, sharing his knowledge and expertise locally and on the international stage and is humbled when asked to speak on his many personal and professional achievements.

Congratulations, Bruce — well deserved!
