My name is Mylee Macedo and I am from Lovelock, Nevada USA. I am currently in preschool and will start kindergarten the end of August. I am a blonde bombshell full of sassiness! I have an older brother and we both rodeo and do quite well. I ride a 23 year old bay gelding who only has one eye. His name is Walter aka one eyed jack. I used to do rodeos being led around and then when quarantine hit I spent every day riding until I was finally able to ride by myself. Last year I won my first All Around title and I was so proud of that. I like to rodeo, rope and hang out with all of my animals. We rodeo in Nevada, Oregon and Idaho. I do numerous Jr rodeos as well as compete in our local Gymkhana club and the Buhl Youth Rodeo series. We are typically busy from May to about September. I only currently compete on my gelding Walter, but hoping to get another horse soon.
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 Nevada Jones, I am from Prince George, British Columbia Canada. I compete in high school rodeos and attend roping and barrel racing jackpots year round. I compete on three horses Poohbear, Gordon, and Emy. My favourite events I compete in are the roping events, breakaway and team roping. I love the personality that the Wilde child hat bands add to my outfits and love representing the brand with such a strong group of cowgirls.
Gracie has been riding horses since before she could walk. She won her first buckle at the age of 3 and that put the fire in her soul! Last year was her rookie season in the BC Little Britches Association. She ran her heart out on her 21 year old mare Peanut, holding her own running against girls twice her age. Her fastest time in the barrels was a 20.9 on a standard and I'll tell ya, this mama's heart was in her throat! Competing against 10 year olds as a 5 year old has its ups and downs! Our Grace was crying hole for prizes the whole year long, but no matter what her amazing heart shone through, clapping for the other girls & telling all of them "good job" or "great run" after they came out of the arena. She competed in the barrel racing, pole bending, goat tail tying & dummy roping.
Besides 'Peanut" Grace will hop on her Daddy's calf horse Roany or our quarter pony Ranger. She has trained both of them in the barrel racing & it's something to watch how those horses just listen to her & do what she asks. I'm not sure who's the lucky one.. Grace to have such amazing horses or the horses have an amazing Grace. She's a cowgirl thru and thru helping with chores, loves moving cows & always there to lend a helping hand in the roping pen whether its cracking the chute, bringing up cattle or helping her dad leg up horses!
I am Karissa MacIntyre. I live near Westlock, AB. I grew up in town and didn’t get my first horse till I graduated from college in 2006. I didn’t start barrel racing till closer to 2010 but have only been doing it competitively over the last 8ish years. This year will be my first year trying amateur rodeos, with my mare Six. In the past I have just been doing jackpots. I also have an up incoming mare, Wicked, which I am excited to start training this year. I do wear a helmet when I run but I love to show off my Wilde Child hat bands whenever I can. I am always learning and evolving in my barrel racing career and I look forward to what this season will bring. Outside of barre racing I am a Registered Veterinary Technologist as well as a Certified Equine Massage Therapist. I am honored to represent Wilde Child again this year and I’d like to wish everybody a great season!
