Miss Rodeo Canada 2017 is from Cartwright.

 

Ali Mullin now lives in Medicine hat and won the crown at the competition that took place November 10th to 12th in Edmonton, Alberta.

 

"For me it is a dream come true. It is something I thought about as a young girl and never thought it would happen because I was from Manitoba where rodeos aren't as popular.”

 

Over the weekend Mullin and three other contestants were put through the paces and were judged on equine knowledge, public speaking, results of an exam and interview and a fashion show.“It is going to be a great year because I get to represent Canada and my first task will be to travel to Las Vegas, Nevada to attend the National Finals Rodeo.”

 

The Miss Rodeo Canada website says long days in the saddle nurtured Ali Mullin’s early passion for the cowboy life. Doctoring cattle, starting colts, and showing home-raised Clay Ranch Quarter Horses led to a keen interest in the equine industry, and a rodeo career spanning junior, high school and college ranks.

 

Originally from Cartwright Ali now hangs her hat in Redcliff, just outside of Medicine Hat, Alberta. A Medicine Hat College honours student, Ali is pursuing a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Visual Communications. “Eventually I plans to pair that credential with my Agribusiness diploma from Lakeland College for a graphic design career specializing in agriculture, and small businesses.”
