The weather was blazing hot as saddles in a desert for two days of rodeo held at the Canoe Mountain Rodeo grounds south of Valemount.

Once again the rodeo featured The Big 4 – Bareback, Saddle Bronc, Bull Riding and Barrell Racing.

The list of participants was cut short by out of control wildfires to the south that caused the closure of some highways and traffic congestion, forcing some registered contestants to miss the event. Still the action was good and contestants did their best to give the folks what they come to see at a rodeo. Stock contractor D & B Rodeo Stock once again brought their finest broncs and bulls to help make that happen.
