RAM Rodeo Tour Kicks off in Style


The Honorable Mayor, Paul McQueen hosted the Mayors RAM Rodeo in Grey Highlands and had a sold out success once again. After rain hit the opening night, the fans flooded the grounds both Saturday and Sunday filling the bleachers to cheer on their favourite cowboys and cowgirls as the RAM Rodeo returned to normal. This rodeo raised over $36,000 in 2022 for the New Markdale Hospital fund and will continue to do so. 

 The competitors came play along with the new bucking horse that arrived from Alberta for their first rodeo in Ontario. Twelve horses from Allison Red Crow and Dale Woodward will compete every weekend in their new Ontario home following the RAM tour all summer long. The arena was in fabulous shape with the System Fence groomer onsite as it is at all RAM rodeos. The Alberta Premium Rye Barrel racing was exceptional as Caitlin Johnson set a new course record with a stunning 14.0 second run. Deirdre Smullen took honors in the CASE IH Ladies Pole Bending with a 21.25. Four ladies were all hundredths of a second apart with 21 second times that made it exciting for the fans. 

 The youth competitors were head to head with Shaylynn Cornish (2022 Champion) continuing where she left last season with a victory running a 14.91 second run. 

Olivia Den Hollander won her first RAM Rodeo victory lap taking the Youth Poles with a 22.75 second run. The rough stock was exciting as the new RAM bucking horses got introduced where Coors Saddle Bronc saw Lester Bowman winning the event .The novice bronc riders came fresh from the Dickies Build a Cowboy program and put on a show with 5 young cowboys having a successful ride, seeing Dylan Rumbel and Cody Younglao tying to take first place with a couple of 64 scores. 

 The Dickies Build a Cowboy school students came to their first rodeo to compete and had tremendous success and try. These young cowboys had try as Patrick Cameron won with a 70 score, while George Crocker placed second with a 69. Coors Bull ridings the last run of the weekend with Tyler Ewart score a 77 to take first win. The crowd was ecstatic and celebrated with Tyler as he set the pace for the 2022 season. 

A special thanks goes to Mayor Paul McQueen and also his staff that volunteered their weekend hours to help raise monies for the new Markdale Hospital through the rodeo weekend. The RAM tour moves to Brooklin Fair this weekend (June5) with 2 performances back to back on the Sunday for Rodeo day at the fair.
