The next stop of the PBR Canadian Touring Pro Division set for Dawson Creek's Encana Events Centre on Saturday, November 30, will take place without hometown cowboy Jake Gardner. Due to a scheduling conflict with the Pro Rodeo Canada Maple Leaf Circuit Finals that same weekend, Gardner won't be able to compete.
Gardner currently sits seventh in the standings, and has made $19,456.58 in PBR winnings so far this year. He has ridden 19 of 44 bulls on tour this year, and is just 179.58 points behind the sixth place rider. He was third in bull riding at the Dawson Creek Stampede and Rodeo in August, and recently won Canadian All Around Cowboy at the 2019 CFR.
The Maple Leafs Circuit takes the top 10 Pro Rodeo Canada riders in each event, and Gardner qualified in both bull riding and steer wrestling.
