Hi, I am Carlie Dodd, I am 16 yrs old and from Hot Springs, Arkansas. My barrel racing journey started 5 years ago with a little Appaloosa mare that knew next to nothing and I fell in love with the sport. I now own two Quarter Horses. One of which has been my nemesis from day one, as he started off trying to deter me from my dreams. We had no idea that he was way more horse than I was ready for, but he knew it, taking full advantage of my inexperience. I do not come from rodeo background and everything I have learned has been from the school of hard knocks, a dear friend and attending professional clinics from Martha Josey and Fallon Taylor. I am now competitive on both my gelding and my mare. I attend barrel races almost every weekend across Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana. Throughout those 5 years I have won many awards and lots of cash! I currently am an active member of NBHA,BBR, SJRA and Lucky Dog Productions. My ultimate goal is to run at the Thomas and Mack Arena one day.
