Hard Rider

Top of page

The rodeo circuit--the sport and the spectacle of bronco busting, calf roping, and steer wrestling--from the inside, as experienced by Canadian world-champion cowboy Kenny McLean. This film follows him on the western stampede trail from Houston, Texas, to Calgary, racking up jolting, bone-jarring victories in the dust and furor of the big corral, adding still more trophies to the roomful he already has. It is what he does for a living, but his real life is with his wife and infant son on his ranch in British Columbia.

1972, 57 min 50 s
