My name is Katie and I’m from southern Indiana. I started college rodeo at Murray State University a year ago and I’m chasing my dreams to be able to pro rodeo before I graduate. I have lived an extremely blessed life to say barrel racing and rodeo has been apart of my life since I was 12 years old. From amazing horses, to my mom hauling down the road with me giving me words of advice, it has all been a dream come true! I have qualified for NBHA Youth Worlds five times and have been a finalist in the NBHA Youth Worlds twice. Both times I made the finals I placed in the top 10. I have made the NBHA Indiana State Show finals twice and placed in the top 5 in the youth. Amos the Famous aka Moose has been the horse to conquer the mid-west with me. Now I have The Colour of Fame aka Bandit to start hauling with and we are excited for what the future holds for us! Above all I have God with me every single day, every rodeo or barrel race and that is what keeps us going. Without God my dreams wouldn’t have come true.
