In addition to the raw power of professional bull riding and freestyle bullfighting, PBR Moose Jaw is adding one more element to their action packed event. Coors Banquet Dancing in the Dirt Cabaret will take place each night immediately after the PBR event.
Before the dust can settle, Canadian country performers, The Chris Buck Band, will take the stage in the Mosaic Place arena right after the bull riding ends.
The Chris Buck Band is The BC Country Music Association reigning 2016 “Country Club Act of the Year” and in 2015 “Group or Duo of the Year”, quickly earning them the reputation of one of the busiest country performers on the West Coast of Canada. The bands new single, “That’s When You Know”, featuring Kira Isabella can be heard playing on Canadian country radio.
With hits such as “Leave Your Light On” and the viral country dance anthem “Giddy Up” the band is sure to get the crowd Dancing in the Dirt at the June 2nd and 3rd cabarets.

This city of 33,000 people has quickly learned how exciting things get with the bull riding event comes to town.
The action explodes even more for this year’s Professional Bull Riders Moose Jaw Powered by Young’s Equipment, set for 7 p.m. Friday, June 2, and Saturday, June 3, at Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw.
In addition to the raw power that comes with the PBR, Alpha Bull Events is adding even more to the two-day show with the inclusion of Bullfighters Only, the premier freestyle bullfighting association in North America.
“We’re excited to bring Bullfighters Only to Moose Jaw,” said Chad Besplug, a two-time Canadian champion bull rider that owns Alpha Bull Events, which is producing the event. “These guys are crazy athletic and can do some amazing things with these fighting bulls. They can be a show all by themselves, but they are just part of what we’re producing in Moose Jaw.”
Similar to Spanish bullfighting, the animals are bred to be aggressive and will pressure the bullfighter, who uses only his athleticism and his experience as his weapons and his tools to remain out of harm’s way.
Like bull riding where scores are based on a 100-point scale, half the score comes from the bull, which can earn up to 50 points based on its quickness, aggression and willingness to stay with the bullfighter; men can earn up to 50 points per fight on their ability to exhibit control and style while maneuvering around or over the animal.
“Freestyle bullfighting is still pretty new in Canada, but it’s a whole different avenue for fans,” said Weston Rutkowski, the reigning Bullfighters Only world champion who is scheduled to be part of the bouts in Moose Jaw. “It brings a whole different excitement to the events.
“Chad puts on great events, and they’re very entertaining from the get-go.”
Rutkowski saw it first-hand earlier this year when he competed at a similar event in Claresholm, Alberta.
“The crowd didn’t know what they were watching at first, but after Daryl got hooked down, they knew how exciting it was going to be,” Rutkowski said of Daryl Thiessen, a Canadian-bred bullfighter from Elm Creek, Manitoba. “They realized it was the game, and they really seemed to be part of the game from that point on.”
Fans in Moose Jaw should expect the same type of excitement, if not more. The event will feature many of the top bull riders in the game, including Wesley Silcox, the 2007 world champion in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.
“This is really going to be some of the best Canadian bull riders we have and a few of the best Americans,” Besplug said. “I expect it to be a really tight competition.”
The excitement of both bull riding and freestyle bullfighting is the unknown and the danger of dealing with the wild animals. Bull riders will try to remain on the animal for a qualifying eight seconds while exhibiting control. It takes a true athlete to make the whistle while riding nearly a ton of bucking, spinning and kicking muscle.
