Primary Horse’s Name: Ziptotwist, Twister


My name is Nicholle Yanak and I am from Hermitage, Pennsylvania. I started taking lessons at the age of 8 and got my first horse at 10. My love of horses has only grown since the very first time I got on one. I have competed throughout the years at local fairs, open game shows, jackpot barrel races, and large barrel races. I have won many game classes, high-points and finished in the 3rd division of a barrel race with over 600 entries. I competed in 4H where i was the top qualifier to move on to the district level from our county and I then qualified to move on to the state competition. Along with barrel racing I also raise, train, and compete with my families Clydesdales.
My love for horses and passion for helping has led me to be a volunteer leader for a local 4H horse club. Doing this I will be able to help instruct youth in all disciplines as well as share my passion for horses to help these kids grow.
