Kayla was born and raised in Brigden until she was ten years old, and then her parents bought their farm in Wilkesport. It didn’t take long for her to realize that the farm is where she was meant to be, and that’s where she developed her love and passion for horses and farming. Year round she keeps busy at her job at Stewardson Dairy in Thedford feeding calves and milking cows and loving every minute of it. She is currently in 4H showing a heifer calf for Stewardson Dairy and having a blast.
Her spare time is spent on horseback either riding trails or finding competitions in team sorting, western speed events, cowboy challenges and jumping. Although she’s not competitive she loves a challenge, especially when her horses are her teammates. In the summer months, Kayla likes to relive memories of her grandfather in her vegetable garden. Her favourite time of year is fall when the weather starts cooling down so she can start avidly baking and can ride her horses in parades and of course attend the fall fairs.
About The Ambassador Program
The Brigden Fair Ambassador program was started in 1972 and has been changing and growing every year. Today it is seen as an opportunity for youth to learn and grow within the community.
To be the Brigden Fair Ambassador you don’t have to know about agriculture, live on a farm or have grown up in Brigden. You will only need to be between the ages of 17 and 24 (as of August 1, 2017) and have an eagerness to learn. This program is about learning, being seen as a leader in the community, taking on new challenges and let’s face it – having it on your resume doesn’t hurt either.
To learn more come to our information session in July 2017 (more details to come) at the Exhibition Hall of the Brigden Fairgrounds and learn more about this leadership opportunity.
Ambassador Competition: Sunday, August 27, 2017 at 2:00pm
Information Night: No Information Night to be held for 2017
The contest is open to contestants ages 17-24 as of August 1, 2017.

The Ambassador is to compete in the C.N.E. Ambassador of the Fairs in August 2018. The winner will reign until a new Brigden Fair Ambassador is chosen for Brigden Fair 2018/2019.
