SAM KELTS CLIMBING THE LADDER ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BORDER

Sam Kelts - CFR Saddle Bronc RiderMay 24, 2016
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FALKLAND, B.C. – The rain might have been pouring down this May Long Weekend as the Falkland Stampede took place, but Saddle Bronc Rider Sam Kelts found the sunny side of the weekend’s weather forecast.  Heavy rains left the Falkland Stampede wet and muddy but Kelts says the sun peaked through the clouds during his 82.5 point ride aboard Northcott Rodeo’s Black Mamba, earning him $1,284.00 unofficially.

“It was muddy as can be, the arena was pretty wet and soppy but it wasn’t too bad the day I was there,” said Kelts who says the competitors up Monday may have actually been blessed with the best weather of the weekend, “I lucked out, by the bronc riding on Monday the sun was shining and it really wasn’t too bad at all.”
