2014 Open Saddle Bronc Final

The good folks at the Mount Isa City Council were the major sponsors for the 2014 Open Saddle Bronc event, thank you to the Mount Isa City Council for continuing to be a strong supporter of the Mount Isa Mines Rotary Rode, it’s most appreciated. I guess that if you are going to win the buckle it’s be pretty awesome to be leading going into the short go and holding the prize on the other side … that’s exactly what Michael Maher decided was the way to get it done. An opening round 81 pt ride on ‘Iced Tea’ to win the first round and then an outstanding 84pt ride on ‘Jayne’ to win the short go round, the buckle and the coveted Mt Isa Open Saddle Bronc Champion title. Congratulations Michael. Due to a bit of a camera fail during this event and had to swap bodies so missed a few competitors … check Purple Fairy Imagery – Cherie Ryan for more photos
