Primary Horse’s Name: Sierra


My name is Ellie VanLeeuwen and I am 18 years old. I am from Ontario, New York. I have been riding since I was eight years old and fell in love with horses when I was even younger. I started competing in pleasure shows about 4 years ago, but I have always wanted to barrel race competitively.
When I met Sierra, the horse I ride, she had many issues and was not the safest horse to be around. I have been working Sierra for the past four years, which have been the greatest memories of my life. In these four years I have worked out all her issues and she has learned to trust me. Last summer was amazing. We competed in barrel races in which we won or placed very well in. Sierra and I have been working hard so that this year we can win more races, beat our old times and make memories together.
