Janet lives near the Village of Pigeon Lake with her husband.   Growing up on a mixed farm near Ponoka horses have always been a huge part of my life.  This is my second year on the board and I am looking forward to another great year with the CCC.  Last year my husband and I travelled to 21 challenges meeting wonderful people along our way.  What a great year for the CCC with huge growth in challenges offered, and competitors going down the road for those much needed End of Year Points. It was great to see all Divisions at the end of the year and at our finals so well represented.    This being my second year on the board I look forward to the continued growth of the Association.  I also look forward to welcoming new and past competitors, & hosts with the same great friendly atmosphere I was greeted with at my first challenge.

Being involved in the equine world has been and is a life long learning journey for me. From
riding as a child, taking riding lessons, shoeing horses for a living, and now learning how to
integrate this knowledge and experience to better understand the rider/horse relationship. I am certified in administering the Myers Briggs Type Indicator which I use to assist with the coaching of the rider/horse relationship.

As a competitor, I have shown horses in many events; such as Quarter horse shows, cutting,
reining, working cow horse, and trail. I have been on and currently on the Calgary Stampede’s Western Performance Horse Committee which organizes performance horse events. As well, I am currently a judge with the Canadian Cowboy Challenge.

These experiences have been a
great asset for me to better understand the equine industry.
The knowledge and experiences from both my professional and personal life have given me a
good understanding of the equine industry. With this background I hope to be able to help with
the process to promote the growth of the CCC in a positive direction. I believe that the CCC’s
mission statement focusing on “Horsemanship” to be all important to the future of the CCC and
the equine industry in general.

Loni has lived in Ponoka her whole life, she has 3 kids and which all are involved with horses. Loni has rode horses since she was 10 and has trained horses since she was 15. She loves helping out with the 4-H clubs, beef and horse. This is her third year riding with the CC and her first year on the board, and she is really looking forward to this year and helping more when she can. Have a great year everyone! I live and farm in the Pigeon Lake area with my wife Janet.  This will be my 4th year competing in the CCC.  I have really enjoyed the hospitality and fun that the CCC is known for.  I am looking forward to working with the board of directors to keep the CCC a safe, fun, enjoyable sport that all members of the horse community can enjoy.
