Canadian Cowgirls Stampede to Calgary0
Chloe & Melissa are two of the out-of-town members of the Canadian Cowgirls rodeo drill team.
The Canadian Cowgirls are a professional, not for profit team that travels all over North America as ambassadors promoting our love of our country, flag and the horse.
We are flattered to be often compared to the RCMP Musical ride, with a few small differences; one of which is that we do not receive government funding.
This team is not our full time job – it’s our hobby and our passion. We use our weekends and our vacation time to travel and rely on sponsorships and fundraising to afford to take our show on the road and share our passion with others.
Being a part of this amazing team has given us the opportunity to live out a big dream… between now and June we will be fundraising to get ourselves and our horses Sysco & Jessie to the dream rodeo… The Calgary Stampede 2017!!
To assist with this exciting (and huge) trip, we will be selling beautiful red maple leaves for $10 each. Each leaf sponsored goes directly to our personal fundraising goals to help us get all the way to Calgary.
Sponsor a leaf for yourself or in honour of a loved one. We will put a name on it and your leaf will be used to decorate our horses’ manes, tails, and saddles in our parades.
Chloe & Sysco
Melissa & Jessie
Chloe has been riding for almost 20 years and has been a team with her horse Sysco for about half of that.
She grew up riding in the hunter/jumpers but has always enjoyed the opportunity to try something new. To date, her and Sysco have tried their hand (and hoof) at hunters, jumpers, dressage, western gaming, fox hunting, trail riding, cross country, team penning and rodeo drill.
When she was offered the opportunity to try out for the Canadian Cowgirls she went for it and hasn’t looked back!! She and Sysco love performing!!
Melissa has been riding for almost 20 years and been a team with her horse Jessie for just over a year.
She grew up in pony club and barrel racing. To date she has tried her hand in hunters, western games, exercise riding thoroughbreds, team sorting, trail riding and rodeo drill.
When she was offered the opportunity to join the Canadian Cowgirls 2 years ago she never dreamed she would be working towards a life long dream of performing at the Calgary stampede
