KCRA Rodeo brought lots of excitement to Estevan

Competitions were held for men, women and children during the Estevan rodeo stop.
The opening night of the KCRA Rodeo had lots of entertainment.

ESTEVAN - Rodeo fans were treated to three straight days of great action during the KCRA Rodeo that was part of the Estevan Exhibition Association's Energy City Ex.

Hundreds of people competed between the different divisions that were offered from Friday to Sunday at the Graham Collie Arena. Due to the number of performers in several of the classes, a slack performance was needed in the morning each day, and the top finishers advanced to the final round that night. Other disciplines only needed evening competitions.

There were multiple divisions for men, women and youth each day.

The top finishers on Friday night in the adult classes were Jhett Cross in tie-down roping with a time of 13.89 seconds; Dustin Rieger, steer wrestling, 6.4 seconds; Mackenzie Shauf, ladies breakaway roping, 7.9 seconds; Meghan Olynek, ladies' barrel racing, 16.506 seconds; Jace Schellenberg and Kade McConnell, team roping, 16 seconds; Trey Tuplin in saddle bronc with a score of 64; and Jace Beierback, bull riding, 78.

The Truco Trick Riders, a group of talented horse riders from southeast Saskatchewan, entertained during the intermission on Friday and Saturday. Also, during the intermission on Friday night, Jaycee Ross' 4-H steer was auctioned off and raised more than $53,000 for the campaign to bring an MRI scanner to Estevan.

The Energy City has been a favourite stop for the KCRA since Estevan joined the tour in 2021, and last year Estevan was selected as the premier stop.
