TEAM DURANGO® MEMBERZEKE THURSTON
PROFESSIONAL SADDLE BRONC RIDER
"I'm excited to partner with Durango Boots. I love how comfortable their products are. I can wear these boots anywhere; from going to weddings to rodeos and even working on the ranch."
My name is Zeke Thurston, I am 26 years old. I am a bronc rider, rancher, husband and dad. I grew up outside of Big Valley Alberta Canada as a ranch kid, with my parents and three siblings. Growing up I always had a love for the western lifestyle, loving all aspects of ranching and rodeo. I have chased after rodeo from a young age, competing in all roping events, bull riding and bronc riding from junior high rodeo until I graduated. I have always favored bronc riding from watching my dad compete throughout my childhood. I attended Sheridan College for two years after graduating high school, where I got to put a lot of focus on my bronc riding. From then I have won the Calgary stampede three times consecutively, won rodeo Houston, a Canadian finals champion and two gold buckles. My wife and I currently reside on our own ranch outside of Big Valley, Alberta with our two kids, Lucy and Hardy. We run cattle, grain farm, and raise and train horses.
