2019 Montana WPRA Circuit Finalist Tara Stimpson

Which horse(s) are you taking to the finals?
SL Fire Up Cash “Peanut” (2010 Chestnut Mare by Dashing With Cash x Jets Of Fire by Fire Water Flit, South Dakota Bred) and Painted Fling "Reese" (2012 Sorrel Gelding by A Streak Of Fling x Young Laney Paint, Smart Painted Lena, Nebraska bred, PESI enrolled)

What are your favorite memories/highlights from 2019?
Making the RAM National Circuit Finals In Florida on Painted Fling

What is your horse(s)' style when running barrels?

Peanut is very free to first then push style. She loves the hard rodeo ground and the crowd. Reese is very push style from the beginning. He’s getting used to all the different ground types but is not a fan of bulls!

What are some favorite places on the road that you stop at for a meal, adventure or sightseeing?
We don’t really eat out a lot but we did try many different places in Florida that were all really good! It seems like anywhere we go we find something new to look at even if we’ve been to that place before.

When you're headed to the rodeo what do you listen to: inspirational podcasts, music, audio books?

I listen to XM radio most of the time but I listen to a lot of Married With Horses podcasts.
