Top two highlights (excluding qualifying for NFR):
Winning Reno, which was my biggest career win at the time and Pendleton win, because it's one of the most challenging and most unique rodeos. What a dream to win them both this year on two different horses.
Most looking forward to doing/experiencing in Las Vegas:
Getting to go down that famous alley as a competitor. I am going to enjoy every moment of it.
In 10 words or less describe your 2016 season:
Exhilarating, rewarding, humbled, blessed, emotional, exciting, thankful, faith, perseverance, challenging.
How do you think you will feel coming down the alley for the first time at the Thomas and Mack?
Incredibly exciting! There have been enough challenging and stressful moments this year, I feel like this is the most fun part of it. We made it. Now go enjoy this opportunity.
Describe your horse's running and turning style and how they will do with the Thomas and Mack set-up:
Truck has proven in the past he can win in small pens, if his jockey is all there (ha, ha). No doubt he can be good. He's super turny, so it'll just be like driving a race car. Martini is so consistent and honest. She'll run out there and just do what I ask and proved this year she can win in small ones. I am very confident in both of my horses.
