Miss Rodeo Canada
Miss Rodeo Canada 2017
Long days in the saddle nurtured Ali Mullin’s early passion for the cowboy life. This cowgirl got her start
in the equine industry by ranching with her parents on their Manitoba quarter horse operation.
Doctoring cattle, starting colts, and showing home-raised Clay Ranch Quarter Horses led to a keen
interest in the performance and ranch horse business, and a rodeo career spanning junior, high school
and college ranks. Besides rodeo, Ali was involved in a variety of sports and activities in her time as a
student at Cartwright High School. Hockey, fastball, track and field, singing and 4-H filled her schedule.
After high school, opportunities to hone her horsemanship skills took Ali across Canada and the United
States. Having worked with horses in Texas, Nova Scotia, Idaho, and various places in-between, Alberta’s
opportunities in rodeo and post-secondary education caught her eye. In 2014, she graduated from
Lakeland College in Vermilion, Alberta with honours, and a diploma in Agribusiness Marketing
Communications, as well as the prestigious Cowgirl of the Year and High-Point Cowgirl awards from the
Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Association.
Since then, Ali has relocated to Redcliff, west of Medicine Hat, Alberta and has discovered a passion for
Alberta’s sunny south. Currently, she remains involved with her family’s quarter horse program back
home in Manitoba, where her parents still ranch. Ali is in her second year of study at Medicine Hat
College where she is pursuing a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Visual Communications. Upon completion of
her degree, she intends to begin a graphic design career. Ideally, Ali would like to focus her work in
those areas that she has a personal passion for: small businesses, the equine industry, and agricultural
The privilege of representing the lifestyle that she loves as Miss Rodeo Canada is something that Ali has
dreamed about for years. With this title, she intends to be an example for those in need of inspiration in
order to pursue their own goals. “Beyond that, I aim to both educate, and be educated by the people I
am fortunate enough to meet in the role of Miss Rodeo Canada 2017. It is an absolute honour, acting as
an ambassador for the athletes, history and sport of rodeo, both here in Canada and abroad.
Considering what I have already gained from these in my lifetime, I feel it is my duty to generate an
increased understanding and fan base for rodeo, agriculture and western heritage.”
