Hi my name is Ellie! I’m 15 years old and I am a member of the California High School Rodeo Assosciation. I compete in barrel racing and pole bending. I have a 14 year old mare named GoReneJet (Dani) that I use in barrels. My 13 year old pole bending gelding is named SmartLittleWichitaw (Doc). I’ve had Dani for a few months and I’ve had Doc for 5 years. Doc and I have won 5 buckles. We were Idaho and California state champions in 2011. In 2012 we were California state champs and WSEDTA Grand champions! In 2015 we were SJRA Jr. Barrel racing champions. Dani and I have yet to win anything but I garauntee you, we will end up winning soon. 🙂
