Katie lived a life full of love and passion for her family, her horses, and her career. Katie and her husband, Brody showed their horses all over Ontario and in the United States.

Katie met Brody at a horse show and they were instantly bonded. She loved her Brody. They lived their lives in a focused passion for their horses and barrel racing together all over Ontario and the States. Katie knew everyone, she knew people’s names and more importantly their stories. She was dedicated to mentoring and supporting youth barrel racers and was always the best fan for all in her sport. She could always be counted on to be the biggest cheerleader! She was an incredible rider, athlete and was gentle and patient when training young horses. She shared her love of barrel racing with her many friends and they were definitely her other “family”.

The Ranchy community was devastated by the sudden loss of our own Katie. A KM Memorial Tee Shirt has been created in her memory and 100% of the profits from the KM tee shirt sales will be donated to Brody to help in allowing time to heal.


Katie Marshall Award

Grit. Determination. Perseverance.

It’s no secret that Ranchy runs off of these traits. However a brand cannot thrive and grow without the dedication of its community members.

For those who personally knew Katie, she was a shining example of each one of these attributes. The first to greet a new face, the one to cheer you on the longest (and loudest lol), and often the last to leave as she and Brody selflessly donated their time to helping others. These are just a limited few examples of the way Katie has shown her true colours and poured her heart into her passions.

As many of you know we lost this shining star in September of 2023, and to ensure this bright light does not dull, and a continuation of her kindness is placed back into the community- we have come together with Brody to develop the Katie Marshall Award.

This annual award/sponsorship will be awarded to a member of the Ranchy community, who demonstrates these attributes, and continues to pour their kindness into the agricultural community.
