The Risk and Reward of the Rodeo

Lambton County’s own Rod Weese and Tyler Foster were showing the crowd how to get it done during the Alvinston Pro Rodeo Saturday night. Foster wrestled the calf to the ground as Weese made sure the animal stayed close enough to tackle.

The Brooke-Alvinston Fairgrounds were packed as the Alvinston Pro Rodeo came to town for Father’s Day weekend.

Professional riders and ropers from RawHide Rodeo thrilled packed crowds Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Bullriding is always a favourite.

The head of the Alvinston Pro Rodeo Committee says the work could not have been done without dedicated volunteers. And Dan Cumming says the rodeo will be back in 2023.

Here’s just a few of the photos captured by The Independent’s Blake Ellis and Heather Wright.
