Alison Van Gorkum

            Hello! My name is Alison Van Gorkum and I am ground crew to the Canadian Cowgirl, and proud mom.

My family and I have been involved with the team for a very long time. I watched my sister perform as one, and took daughter to see them. When my daughter told me one day she would join the team, I believed her. Right away I knew she needed to be put in lessons, and she started riding at TJ Stables. Just like any mom whose children are involved with a team or sport, it is a large commitment for the whole family. At first, I was just there for my daughter. However, after a while I found myself making my own friends and looking forward to her lessons. A team like this is a unique experience because of the diversity of it.

All the girls have different experiences, and are different ages, but come together to make something special. All the girls welcome new members like old friends, and they all genuinely care about each other.

I feel fortunate to help such a wonderful group of women and I always have a blast doing it!
