"In 1972, he became the first ever man to win the Canadian Saddle Bronc Championship and also win the World Title in the same year. He was also the youngest Canadian to win a Canadian sadle bronc championship in 1967 at the age of 18. He seized the Canadian championship a total of four times (1967, 1972, 1979, and 1982) and the world championship twice (1972 and 1976) earning the honour of being the only person in rodeo history to have ever won the World Championship and Canadian Championship the same year (1972). He has won every major rodeo in North America at least once. In 1981 he was named Cowboy of the Year, the highest honour given in the Canadian Rodeo.

In 1981, he was named the Canadian Cowboy of the Year and inducted into both the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and the Canadian Cowboy Hall of Fame.

Retired since 1984, Mel currently lives in Ponoka where he continues with Saddle Bronco Schools, Colt Starting and Horsemanship Clinics."
