2009: WPCA Top Rookie Outrider

Personal Information
After not being able to compete the past four seasons, 2017 was a triumphant return for "Mad Dog" as he is affectionately known. He recorded show wins at the Bonnyville Chuckwagon Championship and the Battle of the North behind John Walters, and for the first time in his career he rode the Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby’s Championship final behind Chanse Vigen. Ryan suffered a setback in 2012 as a spectacular mishap at the Ponoka Stampede sidelined him for the last half of the 2012 WPCA Pro Tour. He was the WPCA Top Rookie Outrider in 2009, and won his first show championship on the WPCA Pro Tour behind Rae Croteau Jr. at his hometown Grande Prairie Stompede in 2010. Ryan got his start in the chuckwagon business as a barn hand helping Mike and Chanse Vigen, and eventually started exercising horses in the morning. He became a sanctioned outrider in 2008, made his debut ride behind Cody Ridsdale at the 2008 Grande Prairie Stompede, and rode a limited schedule for the remainder of the 2008 season giving him rookie eligibility for the 2009 season. An accomplished baseball player, Ryan won several provincial baseball titles and represented Team Alberta at the Canada Games in London, Ontario in 2001. A native of Grande Prairie, Alberta, Ryan is single and enjoys baseball, hockey, camping and spending time with his family and friends in the off season.
