A young man from the Chase area is continuing to make waves in the world of rodeo.
Lincoln Yarama’s most recent rodeo accolade is a Canadian Finals Rodeo Rising Stars team roping title which he won alongside partner Carson Weaver at an event in Red Deer.
The team completed the timed event, in which a pair of horsemen must rope a steer by its head and its hind legs, in a blistering 12.8 seconds to bring home the buckle.
Yarama, who is now a first-year college student in Olds, Alta., was successful in high school rodeo events and competed at the national level on both sides of the Canada/U.S. border.
