There was some young talent showcased at the Orange Shirt Day C+ Rodeos bull riding event held Friday, Sept. 29 at the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds.
Competitors competed in bull riding, cow riding and mini bull riding with judges Ryan Jasper and Brett Fraser, safety men Earl Call and Kyle Bell and timer Lori Winters officiating.
There were also several volunteers on site helping C+ Rodeos co-owner Roy Call.
Orange Shirt Day MC Mike Retasket kept the event rolling with help from bull fighter Cody Call of C+ Rodeos who let him know who was riding each time.
“This is a great opportunity for the young riders,” said Retasket who is a dancer, drummer, political leader, negotiator, cultural interpreter and traditional Secwépemc knowledge keeper.
Joining Call as the event’s other bull fighter was Cordell Pinchbeck.
