Be part of my trail to Cheyenne
Support Ilona to represent “Team Belgium” at the daddy of them all for the women Ranchbronc Championships world finals 2023!
Meet Ilona, 30- year- young , fearless and determined woman from Belgium with a burning passion for broncriding and a deep love for horses.
She currently works at the Gipsy Horses Ranch, where she helps train and care of the horses, while pursuing her dreams of becoming a successful ranchbronc rider.
She was introduced to bucking horses for the first time by the ranch owner William Dougan and his son William Junior Dougan.
The boys couldn’t help but see how much she wanted to climb over that chute , they let her ride and now they can’t keep her away from it, she loved every second of it!
The sport of rodeo does exist in Belgium, but it is as big as the country itself. Very small.
Despite facing criticism and doubts from those around her, ilona never wavered in her pursuit of becoming a female broncrider.
Who could blame them? Nobody in Europe had ever heard of a girl riding bucking horses.
Her hard work and dedication paid off when she won her first rodeo competition in march 2023 at the BBRA Bucking Ranch event.🥇
With her talent, determination, and dedication, there's no doubt that Ilona will continue to make a name for herself in the world of professional rodeo, setting new goals for herself and inspiring others to follow their own dreams.
Boys, clean up your toys, this Belgian cowgirl is coming in hot!🔥
