Personal Information
Despite a late start to the 2018 season and a mid-season injury, Ryan had his best career finish in the World Standings placing 9th overall. Affectionately known as "Mad Dog," the 2018 season saw him ride the championship final at Medicine Hat with John Walters. 2017 was his most lucrative season winning twice at the Bonnyville Chuckwagon Championship and the Battle of the North behind John Walters, and riding the Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby’s Championship final behind Chanse Vigen. 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.
