The Stettler Steel Wheel Stampede this year was a diverse competition between local and out-of-province cowboys and cowgirls, with contestants coming from as far as Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Between Friday, June 9 and Saturday, June 10 with the rain, the ground was pliable and led to a few changes in the leader board.

The final results of the Stampede this year are as follows, with many local cowboys placing in the top tiers.

Bareback Riding: Monty Koopman at 81; Clayton Bunney at 78; and Brady Bertram at 74.

Steer Wrestling: Tee McLeod at 4.4; Cooper Trotz at 4.7; and Joseph Guze at 5.

Saddle Bronc Riding: Brendan Laye at 80; Chance Barass at 78; and Chase Zweifel at 76.

Novice Saddle Bronc Riding: Lachlan Miller at 70; Kolt Ferguson at 69; and Logan Young at 61.

Tie Down Roping: Dawson Johnson at 8.7; Curtis Cassidy at 8.9; and Bryce Kulbacki at 9.

Team Roping: Stacy Cornet and Riley Warren with 5.3; Tyrel Hicks and Lance Brown at 5.5; and Travis Kellett and Michael Smith tied in third place with Brady Chappel and Riley Roy at 5.8

Ladies Barrel Racing: One of the highlights of the Stampede action was local cowgirl Byemoor’s Jenn Bunney winning the barrels, clocking in at 16.9. In second place was Shayna Weir at 17.5; followed by Brittney Schuurman at 17.52.

What’s noteworthy as well is Botha’s team-roping duo, Randon Ross and Denim Ross, who was the youngest team to compete and had an impressive time of 7.0 seconds, winning some prize money.
