Bruce Coleman Tribute


It is with great sadness we have lost a truly great cowboy in Bruce Coleman.
He is one of the greatest horsemen to sit in a saddle in NZ.
He has done so much for many equine sports over his lifetime and he was more than happy to share his extensive knowledge with anyone who asked.
If you knew Bruce in anyway you should consider yourself lucky. Bruce and Heather always made everyone feel welcome and apart of their extended family, they are very special people to so many of us. Bruce will be greatly missed by our rodeo family but never forgotten.
(How could anyone forget his one of a kind sense of humor)

Our love and thoughts are with the Coleman family through this time.
