Young team ropers top three in Canada

Area and team roper, Kash Siqouin, and his roping partner Carson Payton of Monte Creek, B.C., recently wrapped up their 2019 rodeo season by competing at the Canadian National Finals Rodeo (CFR) in Red Deer, Alberta, last weekend.

The Rising Stars Canadian Junior Finals competitions are showcased during the CFR to give young rodeo competitors who have toughed it out through a series of competitions across the nation an opportunity to show what they can do and what the future of Canadian rodeo looks like.

In 2018 Siqouin and Payton won the Rising Star Award in team penning, and this year they returned to defend their title sitting in the top four as they moved in to National Finals competition. The pair did a good job, but ended up third on the final go.

Both teens and their horses are now taking a short break before getting back on the rodeo trail next Spring.
