LOCAL bull rider Will Purcell is making an impact in Canada.
Purcell travelled to Calgary in late May to pursue his bull riding career and since being over there he has made quite an impact.
He has attended rodeos most weekends and has moved up the standings to near the top in a field of 83 riders.
Bull Riders Canada Association is the main circuit he is riding and he travelled to Quebec last weekend to participate in one of the biggest rodeos over there.
The association writes extensively on Purcell’s achievements, lately detailing his rides on a bull called ‘Paradise City of the X6 Ranch’.
Purcell and the beast have met three times this year and so far the score is Purcell three, Paradise City zero.
