Being raised in a city has not stopped Sarah from chasing her horse dreams. Born in Saskatchewan, Sarah began riding Western at age 9; and upon moving to Airdrie in 2007 has taken up English riding as well. She enjoys everything from show jumping competitions, to bareback riding in a halter on her spunky paint mare. Sarah is thankful to have supportive parents whom have stayed by her side through all the blood, sweat and tears of her many equestrian adventures.
Sarah recently graduated from Professional Medical Associates in March 2017 obtaining her certificate as a Primary Care Paramedic; she hopes to pursue a career in Fire or Emergency Medical Services. She is driven to save lives, help others when they find themselves in an unfortunate or dangerous situation, and make a positive difference in the community. Sarah is enthusiastic about running, baking, as well as anything horse related.
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.
