Lani Grace's First IJRA Rodeo

June 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Lani Grace's first Illinois Junior Rodeo Association event.  She ran poles and barrels at the District 2 rodeo in Monticello, IL.  This little cowgirl is just getting started in the rodeo arena.  Lani is a Riverton native and 10 years old.  She has been riding her entire life, started out in a carrier with her mamma and has been riding on her own since she was strong enough to balance herself.  She is an avid trail rider but this is her first experience with any speed events.  Lani and her horse Dillon began practicing only a week and a half before the rodeo!  She plans on using this first year to focus primarily on gaining experience and learning the ropes.  She had so much fun, I can't wait to see how she progresses through the summer!   

DeterminedLove the look on Lani's face as she runs poles for the first time in the arena!

My favorite!  <3 the look of determination in Lani's little face!
