1. What do you do for a living? I own and run a costume jewelry business called Lay z Designs~ Its affordable quality costume jewelry, which is every barrel racers Favorite! I have a store in Omak but I generally always have some of it with me. Its' not uncommon to see someone shopping out of the backseat of my pickup at the barrel races, and rodeos. Feel free to check it out our Facebook page! I also train outside horses and give lessons as well.

2. What do you enjoy doing outside of riding? Anything in the sun with water!! Boating , swimming, floating, or just plain tanning !!

3. How did you get started in rodeo? My parents used to raise and train racehorses when I was little. They used to stick me on a pony and hook him up to the hot walker to babysit me, little did they know they hooked me from the beginning! I think my dad regrets that now because they've sold the majority of their horses except for a handful. Like the ones I'm currently running, a couple broodmares, and my retired barrel horses. I hear complaints every day about how they all need to go down the road except one of my old barrel horses, Stewie, that I gave him for a saddle horse on father's day last year!

4. What is your horse's name? How old is he or she? I'm a lil Samsquench aka Sammie He is 7 yr old Gelding my parents bred and raised him, and I trained him myself. He is by In Solid Gold out of Bedabang by Beda Cheng. I ran him in the northwest futurities as a 4 year old. I've ran him off and on since then. His accomplishments include 2013 VGBRA Open 5D Avg Champ , 2012 Not Dun Yet 4D Open Avg Champ, 2013 CWU Winter Saddle Series Champion, won the 3/23 TRAC race with a 16.975, placed at the Othello PRCA rodeo last fall on him (only took him to two pro rodeos)

5. How would you describe his/her style? He's really round and honest. I think in the three years I've run him I've hit a total of 6 barrels.

6. Does he/she have any quirks that make them unique? I swear he has a death wish with barb wire! For example he was off most of last year because he cut the main artery in his back foot. His legs all look awful and because of all the doctoring I've had to do on him he is a jerk when it comes to putting anything on him whether its' just fly spray or even show sheen!

7. What are your training methods and riding regiment for your barrel horses? The number one thing I make sure of is that my horses are well broke before they ever see a barrel. I also believe it's really important to teach your horse the basics of barrel racing slow, I don't care how long it takes to teach them but if they can't do it right at a trot then you shouldn't be running them! Once my horses are running well I try to keep them away from the barrels as much as possible. If I do take them back to the barrels I generally keep them at slow lope or a trot. I also believe in LOTS and LOTS of long trotting out of the arena. My horses all know that sagebrush can pass for a barrel, which actually works to my advantage because they only step in once or twice after tripping over all the branches and what not!

8. Do you have any superstitions or quirks when competing? I'm a huge believe in pot building. I never pick my checks up until the end of the weekend .

9. Do you have any hauling partners? Yes I took two permit holders from Omak as well under my wing this year !! Bailey Wallis and Jonnie Crossland which works to my advantage because baileys mom Becky comes with us and drives! It works out fantastic ( I've always wanted to hire a driver now we have a free one) besides the girls probably would get us lost before we ever left home ;)

10. What is your favorite rodeo to compete at? I absolutely love Pendleton, no other rodeo even compares to it!

11. What is something that people would be surprised to learn about you? I found out at the age of 22 that I was born with only 3/4 of a brain!!

12. What is your goal for this rodeo season? To season Sammie and hopefully qualify for the circuit finals in the process !!
