Ryan Baptiste of Cando, SK will be joining us Along the Wagon Trail 2020. Wagon racing has always been a part of his life growing up, it came natural to Ryan and his biggest influences in the sport is his dad Mike, Uncle Edgar and big brother Todd. His dad taught him everything he knows about horse maintenance; his uncle was a fierce competitor and 2019 Champion driver Todd Baptiste has helped and guided him as he was an outrider and then when he made his transition a driver in 2009. Ryan’s most memorable moments were when his Uncle Edgar won the Calgary Stampede in 1996 and also being a part of Todd’s success this past summer at Calgary Stampede. Ryan’s goal for the upcoming season is to run clean, fast and competitive.
