2015 Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede Queen, Ali Mullin, was crowned Miss Rodeo Canada this past weekend at the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton.
The new face of Canadian rodeo is a familiar one here in Medicine Hat. 2015 Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede Queen, Ali Mullin, was crowned Miss Rodeo Canada this past weekend at the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton. Mullin and the three other rodeo queens vying for the title were put to the test through written exams, personal interviews, horsemanship and public speaking competitions, and a fashion show. At the end of the week, it was Mullin who captured the crown. As Miss Rodeo Canada, Mullin says she hopes to inspire others to follow their dreams. “For me, I was originally from Manitoba and running for the title of Miss Rodeo Canada is not something that a lot of Manitobans do,” says Mullin, “So it was a dream that I had, but it didn't really seem like a realistic thing for quite a few years and I just had to really stick to it and see things through in order to make that dream happen.” Mullin, who now calls Redcliff home, says her experience as rodeo royalty in Medicine Hat was instrumental to her success. With the Miss Rodeo Canada crown and sash now in hand, there's no slowing down for Mullin, who says she leaves for the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas next weekend. Mullin is the 7th Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede Royalty to move onto Miss Rodeo Canada. - Jaelene Skaley
