Highlights from the first-ever event on Saturday

The first-ever Abbotsford Extreme Rodeo took over Exhibition Park on Saturday, with hundreds taking in the action.

Featured events included: mutton busting (children riding sheep), bull riding, the ring of fear and cowboy poker.

A planned freestyle bullfight did not occur, as conditions were declared to be unsafe for the participants.
