Ashley Hygaard

Ashley grew up on the back of a horse in her hometown of Selkirk, Manitoba. From her family’s cattle farm, to her extensive background with the local horse 4-H Club, she found her passion to pursue the sport of Rodeo. Ashley joined the Manitoba High School Rodeo Association and loved every minute of it. When she graduated from her hometown she knew that Lakeland College would be her next stop.

Ashley completed her Agribusiness Diploma with a Marketing Communications major in 2015. She then moved on to finish her Animal Science Technology Diploma. Ashley’s Schooling has given her extensive experience with event management, marketing, sponsorship coordination, as well as working as part of a team on the Student Managed Farm at Lakeland College. As a member of the Lakeland Rustler’s Rodeo Team, Ashley was an active participant in five rodeo events, while competing across western Canada.

After finishing her schooling, Ashley decided to further her horsemanship skills with an offer she obtained riding horses in the United States. She was taught early in life that there is always more knowledge to gain and to seize every opportunity available.


Thank you to our fantastic and faithful sponsors!!
