Since 1974 rodeo fans from all over the world have come out to watch bucking broncos at the Canadian Finals Rodeo (CFR) in Edmonton. The Canadian Finals Rodeo is a world-class event that attracts some of the best in the bucking business. While there is money to be won, the cowboys and cowgirls also enjoy giving back to Edmonton. During Rodeo Magic, Edmonton and area school children with special needs get to be rodeo stars for the day. Kids are paired up with CFR contestants, and enjoy fun activities like horse riding and barrel bronco riding.
In the CFR video, you’ll meet 4 of the 2009 contestants. First up is bull rider Scott Schiffner, who has competed at the CFR 10 times, and has won the Canadian Finals Aggregate Winner twice in his career. Next is Dusty LaValley, 2006 and 2007 Canadian bareback champion. Following Dusty is Adel Hansen, the 2009 ladies barrel racing rookie of the year. Finally there’s saddle bronc rider Rod Hay, who’s won many Canadian titles over the past 20 or so years.
