Hometown: VT, Chester
Specific Styles: Barrel Racing
Primary Horse’s Name: “Tikka T3”
My name is Arin Kenyon, I’m 18 years old and I’m from Chester, VT. I’ve been in 4-H for 8 years now, and have competed in it up to nationally. 4-H introduced me to my love for barrel racing. My main competing horse’s name is Tikka T3, she’s a 9 year old grade paint Mare who was formerly a PMU foal. During my 1st year of NBHA, my horse and I, who I retrained on barrels, qualified 5 times for the Youth and Open World Championships. My goal this year is to qualify again, and be able to participate in 2018. My biggest influencer is my mom, who’s taught me everything I know, as I’ve never had a trainer before, and I can’t thank her and my dad enough for all of their unconditional support. One of my biggest role models is Fallon Taylor, for her upbeat and positive personality no matter what life throws at her.
