The 21 year old wrapped up the day yesterday with a final score of 154 to win the novice saddle bronc and $974 for his troubles.

Delano also won the novice saddle bronc at the Calagary Stampede last year, but at the time he was just coming off a dangerous accident at the Leduc Black Gold Rodeo. In Leduc he broke his back when a horse landed on him in the chutes.

If Delano Kjos learned anything about backbreaking work from last year, he certainly hadn’t forgotten.

"It was kind of a freak accident," he said. "Last year when I won it, I was coming off breaking my back, so that felt really good.

"But this year feels just as great."

Congratulations to Delano Kjos
