In high school rodeo, I always do anything to make my equine athletes feel their best. Our horses travel together so much that they pretty become a team. My horses, parents, and myself are a great team. My parents and I take care of the horses, while the horses take care of us. The horses love their job and being able to have one instead of doing nothing.

When I out grew my Shetland pony, my mother and I decided it was time to start looking for a horse for me to continue my riding career on. We had no idea at that time, that horse would be a starving, broke to only the basics, and a recent failure of a pre-purchase veterinarian exam, due to an injury to his fetlock. When we went to meet Hank, who was eventually renamed to Juble, I knew immediately that he was the horse for me, my mom wasn’t as convinced.

This began the long process of helping him put on more weight, helping his swollen fetlock heal, and gaining his trust.
I know horses have given me a good work ethic, compassion, and respect. Horses have also created a great bond between my sister and I, as we go riding a ton and spend many hours playing with them. Working with horses has taught me great responsibility, as my mom made me deal with most of the
I have a lot of experience with horses, but my favorite thing is that feeling you get when you whip around a barrel as fast as you can… almost as if you’re flying. You really feel that when you barrel race. Barrel racing has not always been around. Basically, you run as fast as you can on horseback around three barrels in a clover leaf pattern and try to finish with the fastest time. My favorite part of barrel racing is the history of how it grew and became so popular, and just arrangement of the rules and how every little detail is planned out. There are certain women who made barrel racing not only their passion, but their career, too.

In those two and a half years I started racing. My first time I ever raced I got first place and it was the best feeling ever. I was so proud of what I had accomplished and wanted to keep racing. But after I placed first in that class I got bumped up to a new class that had bigger bikes and faster kids. At the time I was still on the 100 and I was racing kids on bikes twice as big as mine.
Many trainers want to prepare their young horses ' for the futurities and for thoroughbred racing at the age of sixteen through eighteen months. “Dr. Deb Bennett raises awareness
Most people my age have a passion for playing sports, but my passion in life is a little different than most. I grew up living on a farm and being around cattle ever since I could walk has been apart of my life, which brought me to one of the reasons why I have a passion for showing cattle.

The life lessons, the memories, the friends, and the love my family
