The third annual Hard Grass Bronc Match in Pollockville, Alta. was bigger and better than ever. The Prairie Oyster Cook Off, tradeshow, dance and more set the stage for the long awaited event. Thirty of the best saddle bronc riders as well as a tribute ride to the old western way of life by a local buckaroo were also highlights. Big Valley, Alta. cowboy Zeke Thurston landed a 94 point ride in the short go, securing a purse over $12,000 and keeping him second in the world standings on Sat. July 27, 2019.
