Empty Saddles ~ James Dodds

James Dodds, Lacombe, Alta.

1946 – 2021

Jimmy grew up on the family ranch south of Ponoka, and after a career as a professional bull rider, he worked in off-shore oil drilling for 30 years. After retirement, he returned to Ponoka, horses and the western lifestyle he loved. Each year at the Ponoka Stampede, Jim supplied the RCMP with their mounts.
