An evening at the Tsuu T’ina Rodeo

Under mild protest my son and I watched the last half of the evening set of the Tsuu T’ina’s 43rd annual rodeo last night.  Kian found a few boys to play kendama with so that bought me a little time to photograph.  The sun dropped into some wildfire smoke that laid above the horizon which […]

Saddle Bronc Finals at the Tsuu T’ina Rodeo

The Saddle Bronc was a great event to watch at this year’s Tsuu T’ina Rodeo.  The goal is to hang on for 8 seconds during a torturous ride that often finds the horse whipping the cowboy around like a rag doll tied to a rocket.  Here are a few images from the finals on July […]

Steer wrestling at the Tsuu T’ina rodeo

All rodeo cowboys are tough.  I particularly admire the steer wrestlers as that is an event that I have a hard time even dreaming of trying out.  Leaping off a perfectly good horse onto the back of a small cow with large horns seems a bit too close to the insane end of the scale […]

This weekend was the 41st annual Tsuu T’ina Nation’s Rodeo which draws First Nation people born to the saddle from all over North America.  The rodeo is held at the Redwood Meadows Arena which just across Highway 22 from my home.  This is one of my favourite rodeos and it was great to be able to […]

Flying at the Tsuu T’ina Rodeo

On Friday night the kids and I went across the road to the Tsuu T’ina Nation Rodeo that runs July 26th to 28th this year.  It was a warm, sunny evening and it was great to see the stands pretty close to full.  With a good crowd on hand, the riders were fired up and […]
