Dustin Sippola

Dustin grew up west of Nanton, Alberta on his family's ranch. He started riding with Sid Cook when he was 6 and started his first horse with him at the age of 11. Dustin feels very fortunate to have met Sid, whom gave him a good solid foundation with horses and other aspects of life.
 

After high school Dustin headed out west to work on the Gang Ranch. There he met his wife Carmen and they had their 2 kids Grace and Hunter. And worked his way to being Cowboss. Since then he has worked on ranches from BC to Saskatchewan, while maintaining his colt riding business.
 

Currently Dustin and his family manage Mantario Grazing Ltd by Empress, AB. Where they look after 1260 mother cows from May till October and feed bulls through the winter. Dustin also travels to start colts from November till April.
 

Dustin is thankful for all the good Horsemen and Stockmen that he has worked for and had the opportunity to be around. If it wasn't for them he wouldn't be where he is today.
