Hometown: Warren, OR
Specific Styles: Barrel Racing
Primary Horse’s Name: “CW Owyhee So Royal (Opie)”
I am a senior at Scappoose High School. I have been riding since I was eight and have been barrel racing since I was nine. I have recently began competing in rodeos starting with the NWYRA (Northwest Youth Rodeo Association) last summer. I am currently competing in OHSRA (Oregon High School Rodeo Association) and I have been signed up to compete in the NPRA (Northwest Pro Rodeo Association) this summer. I am also actively competing on my school’s high school equestrian team (OHSET). My barrel horse Opie is eight years old and I bought him as a green four year old my freshman year. I have done a majority of his training and I recently bought a three year old filly to train as his back up. Opie and I have made quite a bit of money at jackpot barrel races, have started placing at rodeos, and we are only improving. See you at the rodeo!
