Stettler’s Taylor Cholach wins Alberta Junior High School Rodeo Provincial Championship in pole bending

Stettler’s Taylor Cholach ran on Spider, to win the Alberta Junior High School Rodeo Provincial Championship in pole bending.

Stettler’s Taylor Cholach ran on Spider, to win the Alberta Junior High School Rodeo Provincial Championship in pole bending, this past weekend in Olds.

Among all the contestants from Stettler and area, Cholach was the only provincial winner, although some of the other participants placed within the top three.

“I felt pretty pressured the first day, especially seeing I was on a new horse,” said Cholach. Faced with the dilemma of riding a new horse, Cholach was too focused to worry about the result, which was not a bad thing as it turned out, and she won third place on her first run.

“My second run was more comfortable and relaxed, and we won the go round,” Cholach added. “And that was our best run, and it was super exciting!”

Cholach didn’t know she was leading when she went for her third run, which took away any expectation she would have had.

“I wasn’t expecting anything, I just thought whatever happens, happens,” Cholach said. “But, it was a good run, making us win third place, and leading to the provincial win.”
