Emily grew up in a non-rodeo family in Southwest Kansas, but always had a deep love for horses and other animals. Her babysitter had horses and let Emily be her “shadow” for several years. She competed in 4-H, NLBRA, NJHSRA, NHSRA, the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association, and now competes professionally, most recently at the 2020 NFR in Texas. Emily has a Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene, which she practices when she’s not rodeoing.
