Personal
Single…Parents Randy and Denise and has a younger sister, Brooke...Her family bought her horse, Leroy, for her younger sister, Brooke, to compete on at junior rodeos but he never really worked out for her so Brittany took him and has had great success. Her father taught her how to run barrels...Her grandmother, Delores, passed away on Nov. 2, 2008, after battling pancreatic cancer…Graduated from Memorial High School in Victoria, Texas…Enjoys watching movies and playing golf. She was on the golf team in high school...Started rodeo in 1995….Favorite rodeo is the Wrangler NFR and favorite food is Italian…In July of 2010, she sold her main mount Sixth Vision "Stitch" and promoted Duke to the #1 spot. Said it was a spur of the moment decision to sell Stitch and although it was tough it was strictly a business decision…Won the 1st annual Diamonds and Dirt Futurity (Bryan, Texas) in March 2012.
