Samantha grew up in a small town in Alberta on her family’s Bison Ranch. After graduating high school, she moved to the United States for five years on rodeo scholarships. While in the US, she was able to qualify for the Collegiate National Finals Rodeo for Tarleton State University. After college, she moved back home to help on the family ranch and compete at the Canadian Professional Rodeos. Last year, after winning the first Canadian Professional Rodeo Tour Rodeo of the season, she unfortunately had an accident in the alleyway resulting in a broken foot that sidelined her for the remainder of the season. She currently has a string of four horses running and is looking forward to competing in the professional rodeos and larger events in Canada this year.
