My name is Maddi Kempf, recently turned 'Maddi Stoltman'. I'm an amateur barrel racer with big dreams to make my way to the CFR & NFR...one step at a time of course.
I'm a Canadian girl who recently moved to Ellensburg, Washington where I live with my husband and our herd. I'm definitely an introvert, I love time with like-minded people but more than anything I enjoy hanging out with my animals. I'm a goofball with a weird sense of humour, I'm clumsy and disorganized, but have somehow learned to live with it! My mind is often going 1000 miles an hour, which sometimes gets me into trouble. I set my mind to things and will work hard and do what it takes to achieve my goals.
I graduated in 2017 with my BBA Honours degree, and I own a small clothing and apparel company called 'Level Up Apparel'. (Click HERE to check it out!) I am bound and determined to follow my dreams and chase those big rodeo goals, while building Level Up Apparel on the side!
I set up this website as a home base for everyone to follow my journey. No, I'm not anything special. I'm not a professional by any means. I'm just a regular girl, who's starting at the bottom, working my butt off and doing whatever it takes to achieve those big 'ol dreams of mine. I'm enjoying learning and growing every day, in myself and in my horse training and riding abilities. I have a long way to go to get where I want to be, but I am enjoying every moment of the ride on the way there...the ups, downs, and everything in between. My goal with all of this is to share more about what the barrel racing and rodeo world is like, and to show you what it is we do on a regular basis. I hope that you can find some inspiration in me sharing my journey with you, I am living proof that not everything will go right but if you look for the positives even the bad days aren't so bad!
Follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, where you can keep up with me and what I do every day. I also have a weekly vlog titled 'Barrel Racer Life' which has new episodes posted on my YouTube channel every Tuesday. I've recently added in a Thursday video, called 'Random Thoughts Thursday'. If there is anything you'd like to see on those Thursday videos, send me a message with your suggestion!
I can't wait to share my wild and crazy life with you, and show you more of life as a fun loving, slightly crazy, goal oriented barrel racer. Thanks for following my journey!
