Contestant Quick Minute


Top two highlights (excluding qualifying for NFR):
Having Show Mance come back to win Calgary after a near death experience from a bad reaction from antibiotics. The second would be setting the arena record there.

Most looking forward to doing/experiencing in Las Vegas:
Having John Gwatney call me Shooter and tell me good luck as I go down the alley. His face is always a reminder of what this is... where we are... and he is the "Boss" of "Bosses". When I see him and that alley... I will know, I have my work and job to do right then and there. Like every other run. 

Describe your 2017 season:
Life Changing

Describe your horse's running and turning style and how they will do with the Thomas and Mack set-up:
Show Mance is a winner. He finds a way to win. I pray I can do my best so they can do theirs. 

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?
Be too shy to sing. I can't dance! And unless my best trait is a talent... which I highly doubt... I'm out on that one too. Kind of like what horse will you ride? I work backwards... what horse will you NOT RIDE. And what show will you not do well on. So Survivor is me. Plus doesn't hurt I'm kinda handy as well. 

Which former World Champion Barrel Racer would you seek rodeo advice from and why?
Although not a world champion, Tammy Fischer is my go to gal!
