Hailey Kinsel is barrel racing’s girl on fire.  Her meteoric journey from her first NFR appearance in 2017, where she secured the Reserve World Championship barrel racing buckle and broke the Thomas and Mack arena record, is no coincidence. 

The recent Texas A&M ag graduate along with her lightning-fast Palomino, Sister, has been breaking records and bringing home the bacon with huge wins at the Calgary Stampede and Days of ’47 Cowboy Games & Rodeo among many others. 

Hailey sits in the No. 1 standing position heading to the NFR with a whopping $192,834.44 in winnings.  Cowgirl visited the young athlete and budding entrepreneur in Cotulla, Texas, for an interview and photo session.
