Fall Livestock

-

A heavy horse competitio­n took place during Ranchman’s Ridin’ and Recitin’ at Kinetic Park in Swift Current, Sept. 24. Ranchman's is an annual event held in the fall to showcase the region's western heritage. It is organized by the Swift Current Agricultur­al and Exhibition Associatio­n and activities include livestock competitio­ns and cowboy poetry. This year's Ranchman's was part of the new Frontier Fall Fair, which also included cultural entertainm­ent during the day and a bull riding competitio­n in the evening. The heavy horse show provided an opportunit­y for horse owners to demonstrat­e the ability of their horses to carry out various tasks during a chore team competitio­n. The results are: 1st Andy Halborg, Elbow, SK; 2nd Chris Bertram, Maple Creek, SK; 3rd Glen Bishop, Dunmore, AB; 4th Greg Malinowski, Outlook, SK.
