What is your future in the sport of rodeo? This spring I will be on the Junior High Rodeo Team, and I hope to college rodeo some day too.

What is your ultimate goal as you continue competing in rodeos? To win more saddles and I would love to make it to the NFR one day.

Favorite aspect of rodeo: Seeing all my friends compete and do well, being competitive myself, and always trying to get better.

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.

Notable achievements in the sport:

• 2013 World Champion Barrel Racer in the National Little Britches Association-Junior Girls. (Finals were held in Pueblo, Colorado)

• 2013 Average Champion Barrel Racing-Junior Girls (National Little Britches Finals)

• 2013 Little Britches Rookie of the Year-Junior Girls (Little Britches)

• 2013 Reserve Champion Barrel Racer at State 4-H Finals-Junior Girls

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.
