Hailey Kinsel aboard her horse DM Sissy Hayday claimed the 2018 Women’s Professional Rodeo Association World Champion Barrel Racer title on December 15, 2018. It was just last year she set an arena record of 13.11 seconds. This cowgirl is on fire! She’s had some amazing rides and nothing but success this year.

Kinsel also set a single-year earning record with $350,700. She came into the WNFR as the number one barrel racer in the world. After winning the first round, she continued to advance. No looking back for this cowgirl! She won four rounds, placed in six rounds, and finished seventh in the aggregate. She earned $157,865 at the 2018 WNFR.
