Best rodeo memory: When I won my first buckle at age 7 on a horse I trained myself in barrels and poles and the National Little Britches World Championship this past summer.

Tell us about your horse: Jr. is my barrel racing horse. He is 15 and is a sorrel. We bought him from Kami Elshere’s family. He is like one of my best friends. Every morning I have to do chores, which includes feeding my rodeo horses. When I am done feeding him each morning, he looks over the fence like he is trying to tell me thanks. He always tries to get my attention as I head back to the house to get ready for school. I also use him in pole bending. He is very special to me.
Have you attended any rodeo schools? If so, which ones? Lari Dee Guy roping school.
Role models/mentors: Parents, teachers, and most importantly God.
What do you like to do when you’re not competing? In sixth grade, I play basketball right now and will be on the Junior High rodeo team. Next year I will play volleyball, basketball, rodeo and run track. I attend basketball camps and clinics during the summer. I have run in a few races.
What’s playing on your iPod/radio? “Can’t Hold Us” and “Hall of Fame” but I like all kinds of music.
