Personal



Husband, Guy (rodeo producer); sons, Pecos and Brazos…Has been mentored by WPRA World Champion Kappy Allen…When she bought her horse (Crickets Peppy Zan) in 2008, he started out as simply a trader type horse and she planned to keep him five months, then resale him for a profit. It wasn’t that he wasn’t good but a friend of hers saw him and asked if she thought they could make money off of him, so Winters said sure. She started him on barrels. After five months when he went through the sale she didn’t take the bid even though they would have made a profit at that time. There was just something about the horse that she liked, so she bought him about three months later. Having never trained a barrel horse, she tells people that God trained that horse. She wasn’t sure what she was looking for in a barrel horse but there was something about him that she liked.,,Enjoys going to the horse races and white water rafting…Favorite food is Mexican food, favorite place to eat on the road Rosas Café, favorite movie is George of the Jungle, favorite singers are George Strait and Patsy Cline.
