What is unique about their personality and what are their strengths? How tall are they and what is their weight (thought it would be fun to compare)? They both have a business like personality. Pearl is 14.2 (1150) and King is 15.1 (1250) 

When did you start competing in barrels? Probably 5

How long have you been a WPRA member? Since 2001

Do you raise your own horses? Or do you purchase? Are you looking for specific bloodlines? We raise our own horses mostly
What are your conditioning and workout routines for both you and your horse(s)? Depends on the horse…Pearl mostly gets pasture exercise. 

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

What or who are you thankful for? God, my family and horses :) 

Do you have favorite spots to stop at while on the road? I have favorite gas stations!  I travel with team ropers so we tend to visit golf courses often. 

Who do you travel with (including pets or companion horses) and in what kind of rig? I travel with Radley, my husband,and his roping partner, Jared, mostly. Sometimes Kyler comes along to his favorite rodeos. Sometimes it works to get to travel with Joey when our rodeo drawing is lucky. Probably too many rig combinations to count. 

What are your favorite memories/highlights and obstacles you faced getting to the 2023 circuit finals? It is always fun to get to travel with family and qualify together! Besides a flat tire and a pulled shoe here and there are obstacles were pretty minimal this year. No awnings were harmed this year. :) 

What are your hobbies or other sports you compete in? We keep ourselves pretty entertained with Kyler’s rodeo/roping schedule and futurity colts! We sometimes ski and golf and try to make the most out of the various places we get to go.
