Faith Match Bronc Ride attracts thousands to event
F.Ganje - August 8, 2017

FAITH, SD – The first chance to see some of the best rough stock, ridden by world class cowboys and up-and-comer’s can be had at the 107th Faith Stock Show & Rodeo.  Well known rodeo contestant, announcer and  roughstock producer Rory Lemmel is behind this year’s Faith Match Bronc Ride, Wednesday, August 9, 2017 beginning at 7:00pm.

“You just go off of Hwy 212 and look at all the great bronc riders that live along that road,” observes Lemmel.  “There are a lot of great horses and a lot of great cowboys who come out of this area.”  

The bronc match in Faith is considered one of the best in the country.  Lemmel says one of the reasons behind that is developing an event that presents professional stock and cowboys competing side by side with new talent – both the two and four legged kind.

“You will see horses from Canada and the U.S.,” says Lemmel.  “And not only will you see professional riders and collegiate riders, but I’ve picked out six of the best high school talent around.  I think they’re good enough to ride against these guys.  That was evident when we saw Carter Elshere, who just graduated from high school, winning second in Deadwood.” He adds, “That’s what makes this match unique.

Lemmel describes what and who the thousands of spectators who pack the grandstands, can expect to watch at this year’s Faith Match Bronc Ride.

“The short round will be National Finals horses.  Folks will go a long way before they’ll see 10 bucking horses assembled like this.”

And the former rodeo champion always adds a little surprise for the crowds.

“Last year, we had Businessman’s Bulldogging,” recalls Lemmel.  “This year will be something different so people will have to come and see what that is.  I can promise it’ll be entertaining, to say the least.”

The 107th Faith Stock Show runs Tuesday, August 8 – 13, 2017.  See schedules and more information on Facebook.
