2019 WPRA Rookie of the Year Carly Taylor clinched the National Western Stock Show Rodeo barrel racing title aboard Diva Deniro.
Looking back on my first couple of years of rodeoing, it shocks me at how little I knew about rodeo. I had a great horse and had quite a bit of success in college and around my home circuit, but I was totally unprepared for the “real” rodeo experience.
Rachel Platten, if you’re reading this please consider this your official thank-you. Jackie Ganter dreamed of being the WPRA Barrel Racing Rookie of the Year, but sometimes you have to “fight” your way to the top (excuse my pun). That’s exactly what Ganter did in the 2015 season, and she did it with a little help from a 3 1/2 minute tune.
