Hometown: Stapleton, AL
Specific Styles: Barrel Racing
Primary Horse’s Name: “Ponderosa Princess (April)”
My name is Courtney, I’m from a “dot on the map” town called Stapleton, Alabama. I’ve been barrel racing for 5 years locally and hope to travel more within the coming years. Some accomplishments I take pride in are qualifying for the 2016 NBHA Youth Worlds and placing in the 3d with some tough horses at the 2016 Shamrock Showdown. Every horse I’ve competed on I have either trained myself or had to work out issues they’ve had before I got them. My biggest idol is Charmayne James because she worked her way to the top when she had very little. I am currently working two jobs to be able to pay for my horses and I will continue to do so until I make it to the top!
