Mentored by her father, saddle-bronc rider Mike Outhier, Madison started her rodeo journey before she could walk. Her rodeo journey led to her becoming the first breakaway roping champion at RFD-TV’s The American in 2019, lighting a path for the burgeoning timed event that is breaking barriers for women in professional rodeo. Outhier and her family raise their own horses on their ranch in Utopia, Texas.

“The future of the women in the Western industry is so bright and is showing so much potential. I believe the involvement of women in rodeo is exponentially growing and I was blessed to be a part of it in the first Women’s Breakaway Roping at The American.”
