Hi my name is Carly Gifford. I have been riding horses all my life and competing since I was 11. I compete in barrel racing, goat tying, pole bending, and by January 2017 will start breakaway roping on my horse Tidy Whiz. When I am not at a rodeo I compete in local gymkhanas and jackpot barrel races. From 2014-2016 I traveled and performed with the Riata Ranch Cowboy girls, a professional trick riding/ roping team. Some memorable rodeos I got the chance to perform at were Scottsdale AZ Parada del Sol, Brawley Cattle Call, and the California PRCA circuit finals were we received beautiful Specialty Act buckles. I am beyond blessed and thankful for all the amazing challenges and opportunities I have been offered and can’t wait for many more.
