Riding Style: Western
Specific Styles: Barrel Racing
Primary Horse’s Name: Miaya


I am 12 years old. I started Barrel racing in Feb. 2016 with my 4 year old Morab. My competitive nature with a hard working attitude took me to First Place in Youth 3D through Penn Ohio Barrel Racing Association. I also tried out for Sundance Rodeo and compete there once a month. I am one of the youngest girls competing there. My dream is to rescue a horse, someday have a colt and train it myself and to go to the NFR. Being in the barn and with my horse is my life. I work hard everyday so I am able to keep my horse. I love life and want to make anyone and everybody smile! I am very competitive but I will help anyone and I cheer everyone on!
