ABOUT

Erik was born in 1992 in Edmonton, AB. He grew up in the Falher, AB area and moved to Grande Prairie in 2004. He didn’t grow up around horses but came to love the sport of chuckwagon racing by first getting involved with helping as a barn hand. The chuckwagon sport got in his blood and he now lives and breathes horses and chuckwagons. He started out racing pony chariots and wagons and made the jump up to the WCA in 2010, where he drove a thoroughbred chariot first to gain some big thoroughbred handling experience. In the spring of 2012, he was ready to race a big wagon. Erik has proved to be a competitive addition to the WCA, with consistent placings in the top 1/3 of the standings and multiple day money finishes. In 2016 Erik finished his season strong by winning the Daweson Creek Dash for Cash. Following that Erik focused on training young horses and building a strong barn. In 2018 his work paid off, with multiple top 3 runs. He is hopeful for a equally competitive season in 2019.
