I'm nearing the back half of my 20'ss. I got my first horse in 93 and started open and breed shows in 94. I was fortunate to get to ride a cutting horse. Soon, I had my own cutting horse, who I cut on and continued AQHA and open shows. By 98 I was sick of breed shows.
I competed in HS Rodeo doing barrels, poles, breakaway and cutting. I qualified for Nationals in cutting all 4 years making the short-go my Junior and Senior years. I was a member of the Wrangler All-Star team 3 consecutive years.
I have won year-end titles and what not in the ND-SD-MN region. I've also shown/placed in other states and Canada. I qualified multiple times for NCHA Eastern & Western Nationals and competed at Western Nationals.
That's all the bragging I can do. I have other horse experience, but this blog is not about that. I would remind anyone reading that I am a Non-Pro and to get advice from a professional.
