Meet Our Team

Sheila is Bling's team captain and she rides Par, (not shown here) a big Paint.  She started with Bling on their initial ride in 2006 and has been coaching and running Bling since 2008.  Coming from a english/dressage background, Sheila loves the fast pace of the rodeo arena.  Sheila is a pilot with Air Canada and in her spare time, her and her husband Joe (who you will see doing everything behind the scenes) enjoy horse camping, snowboarding, pushing cattle, roping and trail riding.

Barb has been with the team since 2009 and is riding Lilly, a Paint Quarter Horse, who loves her speed as a feisty drill horse.  When Barb is not managing an office during the day or mending fences on her farm in the evening, she finds time to cattle pen, trail ride and horse camp.  Barb has an extensive background in cross country, hunter/ jumper as well as rehabilitating and fostering OTTB for 10+ years.

Megan has been part of the team since 2012.  When not out trail riding, horse camping or on a cattle drive, she is saving lives as a Paramedic with the BC Ambulance.  And a proud mom of 3 kids. 

22 years ago Dani first attended the Cloverdale Rodeo.  The music started and women and horses in shiny shirts carrying flags entered the arena.  She was hooked.  Dani joined the team in 2018 along with her Paint Libby.  When not busy with her fur babies, she is busy with her son and manages the WAG in White Rock.

Karlee's first year with Bling was 2016.  She now rides a Quarter Horse called Little Grey. (not pictured here)  Fun fact-Little Grey just had a baby of her own and is now back in the game and ready to do Grand Entry!  When Karlee is not busy with her job as a Project Co ordinator, she's riding western pleasure or playing baseball.


Taylor is a returning member on her Quarter Horse Cheyenne.  She started with Bling when she was just 8 years old, the year it was created and her mom rode for the team.  Back then she was the designated sparkle princess!  She stood by the team at rodeos every year with either her mom or sister Trisha.  She started riding with Bling in 2016 with our Meet and Greet.  Taylor comes from a rodeo background as her stepdad used to run chutes.


Alex joined the team with her mom Stacy in 2018.  She was part of our Meet and Greet team and has now moved up to performing with Bling on her main mount Zara.  When they are not out barrel racing, Alex likes to hang out with her friends and Zara likes to smile for treats.


Simone and her Oldenburg mare, Wazabi, joined the team in 2021.  In their spare time they trail ride and enjoy various disciplines like jumping, mountain trail, roping and cattle penning.  When she is not riding, she is cheering on her son at the race track racing carts.  She volunteers by running local horseshows for Grassroot Riders and is the Pit Boss for LQMA races.  During the week she works as a construction specialist for McDonalds.


2023 is Miryn and her Percheron/Welsh pony Bubba's first year with the team.  Miryn is a farrier here in the Fraser Valley.  She comes from a hunter jumper background but now getting into the reining cow horse world.  When she is not out jumping sticks or chasing cows, you'll find her out off-roading, horse camping or building shoes.


Jemma and her OTTB 10 year old horse Kenny are joining her mom Heather on the team for the first time in 2023.  Jemma is very involved in the music community at her school and is looking forward to being a part of the rodeo.

Shelley has been with the team since 2010  and rides Lacey, a Morgan/Arab cross.  When she is not working as a Purchaser/Buyer, these two are out horse camping and trail riding.


Amanda has been riding on the team with her Andalusian Diago since 2013.  She now rides a big chestnut named Chester.  Amanda is a shipping assistant at NATS Nursery.  She has a passion for doing makeup, singing and caring for her horse, cat, dog and gecko.


Heather joined the team in 2018 along with her adopted OTTB Tommy,  who she got from New Stride Rescue.  She works as a RN in the neurosurgical unit at RCH in New Westminster.  A mother to 2 girls, she also hikes and is involved in numerous other equine activities as well as keeping busy on her 5 acre hobby farm. 


Terri and Mahogany, a  Arab Morgan X joined the team in 2019.  Terri works as a Metal Fabricator/Welder.  And  enjoys spending quality time with her 4 legged fur babies, family and friends.


Wendy joined Bling in 2015.  This grandmother loves driving her school bus and having weekends with her grandchildren.  She spends her spare time training her young horse Rey, trail riding and camping with her horses.  Over the years she has dabbled in barrel racing and pole bending.  But her all time favorite event was the flat race in Princeton!  So if you see Wendy, come say hi, she loves what she does and loves to share the joy with others.


Carly joined the team in 2020.  This year she brings her Paint gelding Tex to join her.  Carly manages a small animal veterinary clinic in White Rock.  In her off time you will find her riding the trails with Tex and playing with her 2 dogs Millie and Ellie.


Sydney has been riding on the team since 2022, and is the daughter of one of our long standing members, Shelly.  Last year using her horse Banjo, has switched to mom's horse Lacey.  It has been her dream to ride on the team since watching her mom for so long.  She is looking forward to starting the Cloverdale rodeo back up with  all these wonderful people!
