My name is Teja Shimmin, I am from Spanish Fork, Utah. My family runs a cattle farm. I started riding about a year ago, and starting riding competitively for about six months. My dad got me my own horse to train and to rodeo on. Together we’ve been learning. I’ve ran in three rodeos with the start of high 25’s. Flash and I have gotten it down to a low 20. I look forward to seeing how far we can go. Rodeo is something I enjoy and have a lot of passion for. I look up to Amberley Snyder because of how her accident didn’t stop her from doing what she loves. My horse’s name is Flash. She has such a big heart. She has a such docile temperament. She loves to run and race other horses, she always tries her best, and will do anything I ask of her.
