Hello! My name is Marissa Wooton. I was born on May 4th of 2002. I am from the small town of West Alexandria Ohio. I am proud to be a part of the ‘Just Horsin Around’ 4-H club and the Tri County North FFA chapter. In FFA my favorite CDE is Equine judging. Through 4-H, I show in all gymkhuna classes along with Ranch Horsemanship and pleasure, Western trail, English equitation and pleasure, Showmanship, and Roping. Outside of 4-H I have done Heeling, trail riding, mounted shooting, bareback, flag carrying, liberty, and more! I do all of this with my All around APHA mare which was originally a trail horse when we got her (I taught her everything she knows!). I have been riding and spending time with horses for as long as I can remember. But started competing in barrel racing in 2014. I have won so many awards with Josie the past 4 years that I’ve had her. My biggest inspiration is Fallon Taylor because she always puts 100% into all of her goals.

If you have any questions or further information, I’d be glad to help! Just email me at
