Nicole Edland rides her horse, Percy, around a barrel as she competes in a PRCA event in Dickinson. Edland was named the 2022 Women's Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) Badlands Circuit Rookie of the Year.

Since she was a nine-year-old girl on the farm in rural Glenfield, Nicole Edland has been at home around horses.

"I didn't start riding until I was [that age]," she says. "But I've been hooked since."

Being around them, seeing how they work with humans, and building a special bond with each and every equine athlete she's had the pleasure to ride, has served Edland well in the sport of rodeo.
