Meet your Instructors:
Hello Everyone! My name is Ashlynn and have been blessed to able to come back to camp for the 14 year. A LONG TIME, I know! I started coming to camp as a camper when I was 8 years old. After I couldn't be a camper any longer, I moved my way to being a teen helper, and finally an instructor. When I was a camper, barrel racing was my passion, however, God had different plans for me as I grew into the person I am today. I have taught Horsemanship in the past and am so excited to have the opportunity to come back and teach again this year! One of my favorite things about camp is that I get to see how much my campers grow physically, mentally, and spiritually in the week that I get to spend with them. I truly believe God put Rodeo Bible Camp in my life for a reason. I started riding horses when I was three years old. Horses have always been a HUGE part of my life and for that I am forever grateful. In my spare time I enjoy riding my horse Reba, spending time with my friends and family, as well as taking care of my two cats (Tigg and Tuck) and my dog (Nova). Rodeo Bible Camp holds a very special place in my heart. I can’t wait to meet all of you and make your time here just as special.
Hi my name is Maddie. This will be my first year as an instructor, but my 11th time returning to camp. I started out attending camp as a 9 year old and eventually returned as a teen leader, and now as an instructor. I have grown up riding horses for as long as I can remember. I started competing in 4-H rodeos when I was 8 and continued until I was 17. I also competed in high school rodeo all four years! In participating in these three programs, I have learned and grown very strong in my faith and plan to continue to keep learning and growing. I ride my horses, flash and Cherokee, whenever I get the chance to! I very much enjoy taking my horses on trail rides and going to play days around South Dakota! My all time favorite bible verse comes from Psalms 46:5, “God is within her, she will not fall.” This verse just reminds me to keep going through the hard times and that he is always there with me through it all. I look forward to seeing everyone at camp and getting to know everyone!
