NFR Round 6: Barrel Racing

How ’bout round 6 everyone? Can you believe Round 7 is tonight!! I sure can’t!  We are on the downhill slope of the NFR. Round 6 was interesting! There were some horse changes, lots of hit barrels, some slower times and some really fast times! Round 6 was kind of all over the place. It will be interesting to see how Round 7 goes. We will find out tonight.

Congratulations Kimmie and Foxy!

You know how I mentioned that it has been interesting to see a new round winner in the last 5 rounds of the NFR? Well Kimmie Wall decided to rock that theory in Round 6 and won another go round last night! Her and Foxy ran a SUPER fast run of 13.46 seconds! Just nine one hundredths off of Taylor Jacobs 13.37 arena record set in 2013. Do you think they have what it takes to beat the arena record tonight? I think they do as long as they leave all three barrels standing!

Speaking of barrels, lots of barrels were hit last night! The average was shaken up by Pam Capper who unfortunately hit a barrel when she was first out in the round. She has now dropped down to 6th place in the Average. Amberleigh Moore is still leading the average especially after splitting 4/5th place in the round with Mary Burger. Lisa Lockhart played it safe last night with a clean run, enabling her to keep second in the average (she didn’t place in the go round). Jana Beam also ran a smoking fast run of 13.57 seconds winning second place and Sherry Cervi placed third in Round 6 with a 13.72 second run.  It was an exciting round. It will be interesting to see what happens tonight in Round 7!

WPRA Contestant Quick Minute:

Top two highlights (excluding qualifying for NFR):

Most looking forward to doing/experiencing in Las Vegas:

It is every little girls dream that has ever ran around a barrel to run down the alley at the Thomas and Mack and I actually get to do it!

In 10 words or less describe your 2016 season:

Dreams really do come true – never give up!

How do you think you will feel coming down the alley for the first time at the Thomas and Mack?

I think it will be a little emotional. Not only for me but my family who has worked so hard and sacrificed so much to make this a reality.

Describe your horse’s running and turning style and how they will do with the Thomas and Mack set-up:

Foxy runs hard and turns hard. She likes to have a little ground under her feet. The size of the pens doesn’t seem to matter. She just really loves her job. The alleyway at the Thomas and Mack will be tricky but Foxy will really like the atmosphere at the Wrangler NFR.
