You can trace Hailey Kinsel Lockwood’s roots to a ranch in Cotulla, TX. Her parents, Dan and Leslie Kinsel run a commercial beef operation. They likely inspired Hailey’s interest in rodeo and riding horses. This professional barrel racer has had a few good horses in her time, including Thunder Stones ‘TJ’ and Sister. With the help of her equestrian mom, she has trained most of the horses right on the ranch.
You can tour the farm she grew up on and learn more about her training philosophy in this Racer’s Edge documentary and in Life In The Fast Lane With Hailey Kinsel. She’s an open book!
It’s always interesting to watch the stories of professional riders. Hailey is an incredible athlete with a supportive family. She has the winning combination!
