Sammy Bird – Rodeo Champion/Artist

If you’re from “around here” and you pay attention to rodeo, the name Bird will definitely ring a bell! Sammy was at the Calgary stampede this year, but maybe in a different capacity than you might expect. According to CBC News Calgary:

A champion barrel racer is taking a break from the rodeo to show and sell her art at this year’s Calgary Stampede.

Sammy Bird, a 25-year-old woman from the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana, paints vibrant, colourful images of horses.

She also was the champion of the 2016 Indian National Finals Rodeo as the only cowgirl to have points in both women’s breakaway and in women’s barrels.

Her art is being displayed at the Western Showcase, which is in the BMO Centre on the Stampede grounds.

You can listen to Sammy’s interview here:

Three days after this interview – she won the Kiania Tour Rodeos’ Ladies barrels, Ladies-All-Around and high money trailer.

Check out her fabulous artwork on her Facebook page
