Hello!! I’m Karsen Jackson, and my passion is horses and rodeo.
I’ve been riding horses since I was three or four. I first started out with barrel racing and pole bending. But once I turned about ten. I started goat tying just for fun at my house. But then found the love for training horses. Since then I have trained about five colts, and have finished/ patterned more then I can name.
Now, I am goat tying, barrel racing, pole bending, and breakaway roping. Plus training and finishing/patterning horses.
My main horse is Swing N’ Sugar Bars, aka. “Cooper”. I’ve had him sense he was five, and he’s been nothing but a blessing to me and my family. He got injured all last year, then coliced, but now he is stronger than ever. I couldn’t see myself where I am today, if I didn’t have him!
Here are some of my accomplishments:
-VVFA Rodeo Queen, 2014-2016 won two years.
-2015 OPEN 3D Barrel Racing Champion, Olsens Grain Barrel Racing.

-Trained 5 colts
