Southwest entries win CCA prize money in Manitoba

Some Southwest cowboys and cowgirls did some cross border winning in Manitoba this past weekend in Canadian Cowboys’ Association action.

Travis Munro led the way by making a trip to the pay window in the steer wrestling event during all three Manitoba stops. During rodeo action in Austin MB he topped the field with a 5.3 second effort to claim $939. During the rodeo performance in Swan River he placed third with a 5.1 second run. During a stop at the Waywayseecappo Rodeo he turned in a lighting quick 3.7 second run to place second and earn a $972 payday.

The Australian cowboy now sits sixth in the steer wrestling standings.
