My name is Michelle Novak, from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. I have been riding for almost 16 years and have barrel raced for about 8 years. I currently have one horse named Penny and she is a 9-year-old registered quarter horse. Penny loves to go fast, and I got her as a project to turn her into a barrel horse as she has great potential to excel in barrels and poles. I am currently working towards training Penny after she suffered from a major tendon injury last year in September. I am working on building back Penny’s confidence and trust back by doing positive enforcement training with her. I am also slowly training Penny to run barrels, poles and to get her confidence back on the trails, as she loved to explore the trails with me before the accident. I am also excited to go down the beautiful Vancouver Island trails in the summer to some amazing views of the mountains and rivers. Because of covid-19 there are no in person barrel races on the island but that will not stop me from training and sharing my progress with Penny. I am proud to be apart of the Wild Childs team to spread the positive attitude of the brand and to embrace that when something bad happens there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
Hello, my name is Monica Kippers I am from Barrhead Alberta, Canada. I’m a horse enthusiast in many ways not only is my career focused around keeping my clients horses happy and healthy, but my personal life is devoted to my own horses! Over the years I’ve dabbled in a variety of disciplines but Barrel racing is where my true passion lays! On a normal year I spend most of my summer on the road.. from local week night jackpots to rodeos and larger jackpots on the the weekends I stay busy! Last year was a little different with covid and less events happening but I still managed to stay busy competing at least twice a week and hit up a bunch of larger jackpots that happened in the fall. I generally compete on at least three horses. This year I will have my two main girls Willow and Ritz for the start of the season and come the fall I will add cozmo ( my futurity hopefully for 2022), and Allie my mare who will be having her foal this spring to the team. Hopefully I’ll also get to use Ivy my moms mare for derbies later this year!
Hi my name is Kerri Moat I am from Dawson Creek British Columbia, Canada. I don't do much for sports outside of the arena, I snowboard and skate a few times a year and that's it. My favorite rodeo event is Team roping. I compete on three main horses Bullseye, Dixie, Deuce, If I need a different horse for Barrel Racing or Pole Bending I borrow my mom's horse Merri or my sister's horse Foxy. I am a member of the British Columbia High School Rodeo Association, Teepee Creek Junior Rodeo, Association, British Columbia Barrel Racing Association, Peace country Barrel Racing Association, and Alberta Barrel Racing Association. I compete around a total amount of 20 times a year in rodeos and barrel races. Bullseye is a 20-year-old bay gelding, the events that he does for me are Team roping on the head side and for my sister, he does Reined Cow Horse and Cutting. Dixie is a 7-year-old dark bay mare, the events she does for me are Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, Goat Tying, and Team roping on the head side.
Duece is a 19-year-old sorrel mare, the events she does for me are Breakaway, and Ribbon Roping.
My name is Elexa Langset, and I am currently living in Bowden, Alberta Canada to attend school at Olds College. I am originally from Langley, BC where I grew up on the back of a horse. From the age of four, I competed at a local riding club doing any and every event that I could. I rode in jumping, English/western flat shows, and gymkhanas almost every weekend in the summers. I decided that I wanted to pursue barrel racing, not just jackpots, but I had my heart set on rodeo. A couple horses, blood, sweat, many tears and 1 year later, I bought my very own barrel horse. Decider’s Dash T Gold is a 2012 palomino mare. Although she is very much bred to run barrels, she was even more green to the actual sport than I was. Countless YouTube video tutorials, a clinic, and many hard nights in the arena alone later. We made progress slowly, but surely. In the spring of 2017 I bought my first BCRA membership and me and hit as many rodeos as we could. Dita rode in an old, blue, rusty bumper pull, but I was living my dream. Dita and I ran at the Chilliwack rodeo, Our run felt smooth, I still wasn’t pushing her, but by the time we were running home, I knew it was the best run we had made together. Tears flowed down my face when a friend came and told me that I was leading the youth barrel racing. We ended up winning our first buckle together that night, with a run that would have placed us 4th in the ladies barrel racing. Since our first win together, Dita and I have ran on the ladies BCRA circuit, won a handful more buckles, placed at many big barrel races around BC, and have won the 1D at multiple races. I am now living my dream going to school to be an Equine Reproduction Technician at Olds College. I hope to rodeo professionally, own a barrel horse breeding farm, teach as many people as possible about barrel racing, and produce horses that not only improve the sport, but that other little girls with big dreams can go and achieve great things with.
Lol well jeepers where to start! I’m Michelle Hebert and am a married mom of two teen boys from Forestburg Alberta, Canada.

My name is Dana Pentland, I am a horse loving lady from Barrier British Columbia, Canada. I currently own 3 horses, Stormy (35) retired, Bozo (24) semi-retired, and Cooper (16). I have competed in team penning, team roping, and breakaway roping. I currently barrel race, show and am currently beginning my venture into the world of western dressage. Minus 2020 I am usually pretty frequent out and about at horse events. 2021 I am playing by ear. Cooper my barrel horse has been on the injured reserve list all winter, so he will come back slow and we will concentrate on showing and dressage, and see how he progresses, as his wellbeing comes first. I also show with Bozo so will be out on 2 horses. I am looking at adding a young prospect this year, if the perfect one comes along. With my small business Divergent Equine, I am still at a lot of different events, I have plans to be at barrel races, cutting shows, and maybe even reining shows, along with western class shows I am in.
