Kiwi cowboy Adam Jamison continues his international success after taking out the bull ride at Canada's Medicine Hat rodeo.
It was a tough day yesterday for riders on the main draw during the opening day of the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede, Medicine Hat News reported.
Jamison was the only cowboy not to get bucked in the event.
The 22-year-old took out the top score of 82 on Loose Talker, but him and one other, Cessford's Clayton Bunney, were the only riders to get in the points in their respective events.
"It was just a bad day for the cowboys," he said.
"It's good to get the pick of the litter - glad I stayed on and he didn't make me look silly."
The Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede events have been a tradition since in 1887.
Earlier this month, Jamison won a bull riding challenge at the annual Ranchman's Renegades Smithbitt Charity Bullbustin.
Jamison and his older brother, Andrew Jamison, from North Canterbury, are among New Zealand's top bull riders. Adam Jamison now lives and works on a ranch near Millarville, in Alberta, Canada.
