American Bucking Bull Inc. is saddened by the news of the death of Ty Pozzobon. Born November 9, 1991, Pozzobon passed away on January 9 at the age of 25. Pozzobon was the 2016 PBR Canadian Champion, a four-time PBR World Finals qualifier and a three-time Canadian Finals Rodeo Qualifier. At the 2016 PBR World Finals, he had a fantastic event finishing fourth overall in Las Vegas.
“ABBI sends out our condolences to Ty’s family, friends and loved ones,” stated ABBI Executive Director Jay Daugherty. “Ty was an incredibly talented bull rider, but more importantly he was an extremely kind and good man. He loved and cared about other people and rarely would you see him without a smile on his face. We lost someone who, although young, had already left such a positive mark on our industry and we are all saddened we will never get to see what else Ty would have accomplished.”
Pozzobon and his family also produced and raised bucking bulls and were integral to the success of launching ABBI Canada. Pozzobon also produced his namesake PBR event in his hometown of Merritt, BC from 2013-2015, with a planned return for this year.
Pozzobon is survived by his wife Jayd, his parents Luke and Leanne and a sister Amy. He leaves behind countless friends and fans who mourn the loss of such an amazing cowboy.
