Dog Trials 2008 

On May 10th 2008, the Hardy souls from CTC gathered at the Bearspaw arena for the Annual Dog Trials. This Year we were planning to add some Teamster Events, but due to the HUGE snowfall in the outlying areas, those events were cancelled.


The Dog Trials and Stock Horse events started at 2:30 in the afternoon.


We had the Fearless Leader setting the pace, and he was followed by riders of all ages on horses ranging from barely broke to seasoned show horses.


Gordy supplied the cattle, and they were a spirited little herd at times.


There were adventures in the stands as well as some of the “fearsome” young ones were caught ambushing the good- hearted Arnold.



Some practiced roping on the mechanical roping dummy set up in the front entrance.


Two of the young men got down and dirty and were quite proud of their new look.


The evening concluded with the traditional Pot Luck supper , and as usual the cooks in our midst outdid themselves. This was followed by a concert featuring two of the Kamloops Cowboy Festival “Rising Star” winners, Jesse Fowler and Matt Robertson. Terri Mason judged the event and provided us with some Cowgirl humor by entertaining us with some of her poetry.
