Calgary Stampede 2015

July 3-12 2015

Welcome to the

Calgary Stampede

Check out our new app for the best mobile experience.



Junior steer riders, aged 12–15, compete on wirey bovines. As in other roughstock events, half of the score is awarded for the cowboy’s ability to ride, and half for the stock’s ability to buck. Contestants are allowed to ride with one or both hands. If they elect to ride one-handed, they’ll have to abide by the rules of bull riding—they’ll be disqualified for touching the animal or themselves, or for grabbing with both hands during the eight seconds. The top six compete in the finals.
