Hometown: Austin, TX
Specific Styles: Barrel Racing
Primary Horses Names: “Snacks Sugar Play (Sugar) and Little Bit of Bug (Bug)”
My name is Kayden Mckelvey, I’m 19 years old, and from Austin Texas. I have been riding since I was 4 years old and I have been competing since 2009. I compete every weekend in barrel races and/or CPRAs around the area. I also do some breakaway and I head and heel in team roping. I currently have 2 horses that I compete with, Snacks Sugar Play aka Sugar and Little Bit of Bug aka Bug. This year I have been working on graduating Beauty College and on getting my younger horse, Bug, finished and seasoned. We are also expecting a baby out of Bug by French Streaktovegas in 2018. Somebody I look up to is Buck Brannaman. His story is really inspirational to me because although he had a number of serious obstacles in his life and upbringing, he was still able to employ hard work and dedication in order to fulfill his goals. I strive to one day possess not only his skill, but also his drive to succeed.
