Personal


Husband, John. Met her husband inside the National Saddlery shop in Oklahoma City, a business they bought and ran together from 1980-2008. They even used to make the world champion saddles for the PRCA (1988-1998). Raised two kids – son: Marshall and daughter, Kayla…Father, Don Frederickson, competed in rodeo (bronc riding and team roper) so she has been around horses all her life…Has been a top trainer for years but would train and sell and never made a run for the NFR until High Valor came along. In 2017, she and her horse A Juicy Adventure were both injured at the Springville, Missouri Rodeo. The injury forced Rule to start using Valor a horse she had purchased from Lana Merrick as a four-year old. He was broke but didn’t have any barrel racing training so she has brought him along slow and got him ready for a season like 2019…Her father passed away in the spring of 2019 and she plans to take his saddle to ride in the grand entry aboard A Juicy Adventure so it all comes full circle for her.
