I kept telling myself to just get around the barrels, no matter how ugly it looked. I knew we were set up pretty good in the average if I could just do that.
Never put a limit on your Goals. If you can think it you can do it! Never use the word CAN’T.
Just aiming for smooth clean runs. Taking it one run at a time and it will all work out in the end.
Since the beginning, horses and rodeo have been a major part of my life. While riding began when I was very young, I started training my first barrel horses at the age of 13. As I grew, and went through many life changes, my passion for barrel racing, and my goal to be the best, never wavered.
Now in my early 30’s, I’m lucky enough to be able to make my passions my professional career. I spend the majority of my year back and forth between Canada and the United States chasing rodeos. My winters are spent in Arizona continuing to keep my horses and myself sharp, to maintain our competitive edge. It’s critical to me that my horses stay as dedicated, focused and as physically fit as I am.
My main horse, Ripn’ Lady (aka Ripp), won the honour of horse with the most heart this year in the Canadian Pro Rodeo Association. There really is no horse out there with more try and heart, and I couldn’t ask for a better partner and teammate to make my dreams come true.
This year, Ripp and I qualified for the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. One step closer to reaching my lifetime goal of winning the NFR.
