Rusty Quam

How to Get Started in Barrel Racing – Rusty Rae Quam would have had trouble choosing any other occupation when she was born into a rodeo contracting family with a horse-training background. From day one she and her brother, Cain, lived in a trailer traveling the rodeo circuit or traipsing along with her mother doing barrel clinics.  Barry Quam ran a successful stock contracting business, while Sherry is a past CCA Champion and Pro Circuit Champion.

Rusty has dedicated her life to barrel horses and enjoyed much success along the way. She qualified for her first Manitoba Rodeo Cowboys Association Finals when she was 8 years old.  Since then Rusty has qualified to numerous Manitoba and Saskatchewan finals, set CCA records, and won numerous championships.  Rusty has now dedicated her talents to training barrel horses full time.  Living in Wainwright, Alberta, she trains and sells barrel horses and goes to futurities and rodeos.
