Mikyla Hogno


My name is Mikyla Hogno and I live in Ipswich QLD! I am a vibrant, positive 19 year old I and currently work full time at the Leichhardt Pharmacy, whilst completing my level 1-2 Pharmacy. I have grown up with horses on a Quarter Horse stud, and with my father being a Farrier/Blacksmith I naturally became very horse orientated and would often be found hanging around in paddocks and hugging horses legs at a very young age! After a foundation of hacking, showjumping and pony club events to establish my riding skills, I ventured into the sport of rodeo, and immediately fell in love. I am a keen rodeo competitor, I compete nearly ever weekend of the year, and work horses every day. I travel with mainly the National Rodeo Association and Australian High School Rodeo Association with the exception of some Australian Professional Rodeo Association or National Barrel Horse Association events.

Rhondhu Roxlena Spin(Cooper) is my partner, we compete in the barrel race, breakaway roping, pole bending and steer undecorating. I am also a hazer and haze for many steer wrestlers and steer undecorators very successfully, it’s something I really enjoy. Cooper came to us as a three year old and we had him broken in and my dad began training and working him. It wasn’t until I lost my old horse that I eventually claimed Cooper from my dad (much to his disappointment)! We are a strong team, however we do have our hiccups, of which I’m sure everyone does!
