My name is Grace and ever since I can remember, I’ve loved horses. I played with the my little ponies toys and I always dreamed of having my own real horse! When I was around 8 I had my first real lesson! I rode English and I loved being around the horses. I did that for a few years but soon got bored with all the rules and strictness of it all. I wanted to try barrel racing. I’m a very outgoing person and I thought maybe I’d like a sport that matched that. I started barrel racing a little over a year now and I couldn’t have found the more perfect sport for me! The speed and thrill I get is something I’ll never be able to recreate! No drugs for me, I’ve already got my high! I’ve been quite successful in it and have won many ribbons. My biggest blessing and greatest accomplishment is my horse Memphis. When he first came to my barn he was under weight, scared, and confused. He was broke but even that’s an overstatement. I have never trained my own horse and I decided to try and train him myself! (with the help and guidance of my trainer) I worked so hard day after day and now a year later he is a completely different horse! He’s healthy, happy, and a heck of a barrel horse! I can’t wait to see what my future holds as a barrel racer and as a partner with my best friend. Memphis is my whole world and has taught me so many things, and I can’t imagine life without him. I’m so proud to say this horse is mine and I trained him myself. I’m so exited to get out there and win with my listener, friend, teacher, believer, and teammate right there with me❤
