Howdy Williams Lake, neighbouring communities and rodeo fans!

My dad has always told me that when I meet someone for the first time to give them a strong and firm handshake. 

Although I may not be able to shake your hand personally I hope that when you read this it will feel as if I have.

My name in Bobi Daia Bracewell, Miss Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association.   I am a 20-year-old, country-living, horse-loving cowgirl. I was born in Williams Lake and had the privilege of growing up in Tatlayoko Valley until I was 16, when I moved to Williams Lake to attend Williams Lake Secondary school through grades 11-12. During high school I played for the WLSS Girls Stags Rugby team for two years. After I graduated in 2008 I rode with the Cariboo Cowgirls for a period of time.

In 2010, here at the Williams Lake Stampede, I am honoured to say I came in third overall through the four-day event of the Mountain Race.

I have always been a fan of stampedes, rodeos, gymkhanas … etc. 

If  it involves a horse, count me in. I am always learning and absorbing as much information as I can to help me become a better trainer for my horses. I train and own several of my own, and love to train for other people. In the spring of 2009 I flew to Ontario for six weeks to train an amazing horse.

For the past 10 summers I have worked at my parents’ lodge, the Bracewell’s Alpine Wilderness Adventures, helping guests and doing guided tours throughout our beautiful terrain.

I enjoy volunteering for social gatherings such as weddings, dances, birthdays, and tournaments. Helping the community has given me a better understanding of responsibility and the camaraderie we share amongst each other. 

Thank you to all the sponsors of the Williams Lake Stampede and a special thank you to my sponsor the CCCTA.  I especially want to thank all of my family for being such great role models and believing. 

This is the kind of support one needs to follow their dreams and reach for their goals, no matter how far the journey.
