Marissa Ondersma, Barrel RacingHometown: Middleville, MI
Riding Style: Western
Specific Styles: Barrel Racing
Primary Horse’s Name: Major Silver Chex


I am 16 years old, and I’ve had Chex for three years this July. He has taught me so much more than I could learn in any classroom. He’s the absolute love of my life, and I greatly enjoy showing him as often as possible. He never fails to make me feel better, no matter the circumstance. He has won 5 high point awards, and one belt buckle. We were also three points away from qualifying for NBHA youth worlds. My role model is my trainer, Audra Hunter, who always encourages me to listen to what Chex is telling me.
