K’s Thomson returned to the family ranch from Canadian Finals Rodeo in Red Deer with a pocketful of winnings after solid rides in the saddle bronc event.

“I’m pretty happy with my performance. I had some good horses throughout the week,” K’s told Shootin’ the Breeze. “I really only had one ride I wasn’t happy with. It really wasn’t the greatest draw from that pen.”

The Lundbreck cowboy placed fourth in the opening round, earning 84.25 points, and followed that up with identical rides of 84.75 and an 86 during Saturday’s matinee.

The low point, however, came Saturday night on board Outlaw Buckers’ Comeback Red where K’s scored only 78.25, landing him last in Round 5.

“It really just didn’t go the way we wanted it to,” he said. “It really took me out of the average, me messing up that night.”

A third-place rebound in the final round Sunday, though, put the three-time CFR competitor back into the money, vaulting him into fourth in the CFR aggregate with just shy of $15,000 winnings last week and ninth in season earnings with $31,827.56.

Although he wouldn’t say it was the reason for his Saturday-night result, K’s has been working through a nagging knee injury, which he said was reaggravated earlier in the day in the fourth round.

A break in the rodeo schedule until January will, he said, give him a chance to heal.
