I reside in Ionia Michigan. I grew up
showing English, Western, and
jumping. I would always dream of
owning a horse I could compete in
barrels on. I would enter the fun
classes with my pleasure horses but still
longed to join a barrel association.
For the last 10 years I have been able
to live that dream. I am a member of
the International Barrel Racing
Association (IBRA). My Quarter Horse,
MLS Royal Derecho and I hit the road
almost every weekend. My goal for
this year is to make it to Nationals for
the second year in a row and finish in
the Top 10. As all barrel racers are
competitive, I am no exception.
However, my goal is to improve our
runs, cheer on our competitors, and
always have fun doing it.
