Profile

I was raised on a large cattle ranch in Lysite, Wyoming, 60 miles from any sort of town. I only recently moved to Huntsville, Texas three years ago when I received a full-ride scholarship to be apart of the Sam Houston State University Rodeo Team. I am currently college rodeoing in the NIRA Southern Region and am the NIRA Regional Director. When I am not at school or rodeoing I love training colts. We have a Dash Ta Fame stud that we raise and train colts from. The majority of the horses I ride at the rodeos my family or I have trained. I will be graduating this coming May with a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing. I have also filled my WPRA permit and next year plan on making a run for the WPRA Rookie of the Year.

Why do you want to represent Kimes Ranch?

I would love to represent a brand that supports the ranching lifestyle, as well as the everyday wear. I grew up ranching. We gathered cows for hours on end, fixed fence, irrigated the hay meadows, and trained colts. Then once we were done with all of that we would head off to a rodeo for the weekend. Most companies do not understand the level of durability and style needed to be able to go from working all day to looking sharp at a rodeo. I believe I would be a perfect representation of both aspects.
