Alkali Lake Ranch cowboy Wacey Marr spends his weekdays horseback working on the ranch, then on weekends he rides bucking horses for the fun (challenge) of it.

On Sunday in 100 Mile House (South Cariboo Rodeo), he has both his spurs set over the horse’s shoulders (and in contact with) as he exists the chute in high-style on a saddle bronc horse (known as Y211) from the C-Plus Rodeo string.

It was not an easy horse to ride and Marr struggled just to make it to the eight-second whistle, scoring only 64 points for the effort.

Sunday, the outcome was significantly better as he marked a 77 to win the rodeo, well worth the second effort. He also placed with his earlier score of 64.
