Top two highlights (excluding qualifying for NFR):
Winning the rodeos in Clovis, Calif., Lovington, N.M., Deadwood, S.D., and Helena Mont., because I have never been to those rodeos before.
Most looking forward to doing/experiencing in Las Vegas:
I am so excited to be going back to the NFR this year and I feel like I know more of what to expect especially with time management during the day. I will have more help this year with taking care of my horses and I hope to get to enjoy more time with my family.
In 10 words or less describe your 2016 season:
Difficult and stressful winter to an exciting spring and consistent summer.
Describe your horse's running and turning style and how they will do with the Thomas and Mack set-up:
Bling likes to take off from the opening of the gate, cut the barrels close going into them and stretch out leaving the barrel. She has a lot of heart and grit. I love riding her in small pens because I know I have to be aggressive and push her past the barrels. She excelled in the T&M last year and I hope we can do the same this year!
