About Elana


Elana is a dedicated athlete committed to competing at the worlds largest competitions such as The Calgary Stampede and the National Finals Rodeo. After her Eventing horse got injured in 2016, Elana put her focus into Barrel racing, purchasing 3 youngsters who are now between the ages of 2 and 5. She is in the midst of seasoning them, while she continues to compete on her 12 year old mare Mercedes. By 2021, Elana plans to have her team ready to run Professional Rodeo. 

Elana has been competing since 8 years of age. She has spent 9 winters training with the worlds best in 3 Day Eventing, Roping, Barrel Racing & Horsemanship. She is a firm believer in always expanding her knowledge and staying open minded. Some trainers she has had the privilege of working for, or riding with, include Hawley Bennett-Awad, Gina Miles, Jessica Pheonix, Charmayne James, Lisa Lockhart, Stevi Hillman, Martha Wright, Heather Heath, Kyle Carter, Lari-Dee Guy & Jackie Crawford to name a few.
