On September 6, 2014 I was invited to tag along to a private rodeo east of Airdrie, Alberta. Personally I had never heard of a private rodeo. Growing up a lot of my relatives farmed and an uncle of mine at one time farmed over two thousand acres. This operation dwarfed anything that I had experienced. This farm could handle twenty thousand head of cattle and sometimes did. The few photos I did take in no way show how big this operation is. Other ranches in the area were invited to compete. Due to privacy I won't say exactly where this was. Suffice to say there is lots of genuine ranching and authentic cowboys in Alberta.
