Chance returned to the CPCA in 2012 after spending 6 years with the WPCA and has been a great asset to the CPCA coming from a long line of champions. Chance started the year off strong by winning the North Battleford show. He had the most successful season of his career having 8 top 5 runs and 19 top 10 runs. He was in the top 5 at 6 out of 10 tour stops and in the top 10 at 8 of the shows. 2019 will see Chance make his 5th appearance at the Calgary Stampede. He is looking forward to continuing his success in the 2019 CPCA season.
