Top two highlights (excluding qualifying for NFR):
Setting an arena record at Lawton, Okla., on Rosa and competing and winning a bronze medal at the Days of '47 Cowboy Games and Rodeo. Both were very special.

Most looking forward to doing/experiencing in Las Vegas:
The only thing I look forward to in Las Vegas is competing for 10 days!

Describe your 2017 season:
A prosperous July and early August made it all possible.

Describe your horse's running and turning style and how they will do with the Thomas and Mack set-up:
Thankfully Louie seems to like the Thomas and Mack and is quite adaptive to all situations and environments.

Which reality show would you last the longest on: The Voice, Dancing With the Stars, America's Got Talent or Survivor and tell us why?
I wouldn't last long on any of them and that is why I better just stick to barrel racing.

Which former World Champion Barrel Racer would you seek rodeo advice from and why?
I guess I have not been one to seek much advice from anyone, but Grady (my husband) gets asked a lot for his advice!
