The New Year’s Eve professional bullriding features bucking bulls from local stock contractors S&E Bucking Bulls, Coyote Creek and Pozzobon Bucking Bulls. S&E stock boss Ed Lebourdais is proud of the caliber of bucking bulls that will be matched against some of the world’s best bull riders, “We’ve got some of the best bulls in Canada that are ready to go. It’s going to be champion versus champion!”

What the Bullriders are saying about this event?

Jackson Scott (Kamloops); “I only rode there the last two years, but I’ve been there the last probably five years before I even started riding bulls. Been watching it the whole time, and …every single year it gets better and better! The crowd gets more and more excited every year, the atmosphere, and the bulls, and everything just gets so much better. The money is better, the bull riders are better, the bulls are better. Everything about it is just absolutely amazing. …..I’ll never forget this even when I’m older, I’m gonna tell my kids that you know, New Year’s Eve, Bull Riders Canada that’s a bull riding a guy wants to go to and he wants to win.”
