Melanie Nicholson, Barrel RacingHometown: Santa Clarita, CA
Riding Style: Western
Specific Styles: Barrel Racing
Primary Horse’s Name: Dixie War Bunny “Gypsy”


My biggest accomplishment is training my own horse from only knowing the basic gaits to patterning her on barrels. I am proud to say I have taught her all she knows and she has taught me more in 2 years than any other horse. The key to success with her is patience. Which is one of my best qualities.
Some people in the barrel racing world I look up to are Fallon Taylor, Stormey Ward, and Jerri Mann. Lakota trailers are truly amazing!
