I have been barrel racing competitively since I was 12. Last year I got 3rd in the open 1D for the year in SC03. I am a member of NBHA SC 03! This year, I’ve gotten 3rd in the 1D at NBHA Presidents Cup, at Dixie Nationals came back to the finals with a 1D time, and gotten 3rd in the 1D at the South Carolina State show! My horses and I usually have solid 1D times. I also compete at some No Bull shows. I’ve gotten 3 fastest times of the day so far this year. One of my biggest role models in the sport is Sara Rose McDonald and her horse Bling! I would LOVE to be apart of your team Lakota Trailers!
