Today Wasn’t My Day

This is the final blog for this journey to RFD-TV's The American and a difficult one for my pride to share.

If you pull up the results for The American barrel racing slack, you’ll scroll down to the end of the list and see my name. The end of the list isn’t where you want to see your name—especially at an event like this. This means that this is the end of my journey for the 2020 American rodeo. Forty other barrel racers have advanced on—including a friend of mine, who I will be rooting for the whole way—and 105 barrel racers, including myself, are packing up, heading home, and trying to figure out how to make it all happen again next year.
