Hometown: Columbus, MS
Specific Styles: Barrel Racing
Primary Horse’s Name: “Alydars Last Dance “Maverick””
“My name is Allie Russell and I am from Columbus, MS. After a severe barrel racing accident in 2015, doctors told me I would never ride again. Proving them wrong, I began to participate in light riding in order to gain my strength back in the saddle. I have owned and ridden my current mount, Maverick, for around two years, and together we are making a slow comeback!
Before my accident, I received many buckles and trophies, but I consider my more recent accomplishments to be several 1D wins at local NBHA shows. I also received the 2017 high point champion in barrel racing for my association in which I am a member of. In terms of the future, I plan to attend college, while pursuing my passion for barrel racing. Remember, anything is possible!”
