Zeke Thurston Looks to Become First Canadian Bronc Rider in Nearly 20 Years to Win Cheyenne

Zeke Thurston took the first performance of the Cheyenne Frontier Days with an 87-point ride to get to the Semifinals early in the week. On Friday he outdid himself by going 89.5 points on Summit Pro Rodeo’s Corina to advance to the finals.

After the ride, Thurston said Corina may not be the biggest bronc, but she packs a punch.

“That horse wasn’t very big, shes real electric and kind of wild and just kept things moving.”

Thurston, who currently sits inside the Top 10 in the PRCA World Standings will be competing on Sunday for a title in Cheyenne.
