2016 was a fantastic year for a local rodeo star and so far 2017 hasn't disappointed.

Cole Goodine of Carbon has recently been competing in the Bareback event at the Calgary Stampede. So, how has the event been so far?

"It went really well, I was really happy how it all went. Competing against the best in the world and I got three cheques out of the four days, so I'm really happy with how it went," Goodine outlined.

"There's two pools, Pool A and Pool B, and then they take the top four into the Sunday show. All the rest of the competitors get to compete again in the Wildcard on Saturday where they take the top two."

Although Goodine is a great Bareback competitor, he reported to 99.5 Drum FM that this wasn't the first thing he wanted to do as a career.

"My main focus when I was younger was hockey, I took it pretty serious. My sister then made it down to Fallon, Nevada to a big rodeo down there and on the way home I asked if I could get a rope horse and it all just went from there. My dad was a bull rider, my mom and sister bell raced their whole lives, one grandpa on one side was a bareback rider and the other grandpa was a roper," explained Goodine.

So, what really drives you when you're competing?

"Something that's always drove me is the name, the Goodine name. My dad left the legacy of what the Goodine's were and when I started riding everyone knew who the Goodine's were. It gave me a name to build up on, so I want to build that up for like my kids so they can say 'oh, that's Cole Goodine's son' and take them under their wings," he expressed.

Even though Goodine is still competing in the Calgary Stampede, that didn't stop him from competing at other rodeos at the same time.

"I head up to Teepee Creek for the next rodeo, I can't just stop because of the Calgary Stampede. I'll be competing at everything I can hit while trying to stay healthy and heal, I'll be at all the big ones like Strathmore and Dawson Creek."
