Kylar has found her way to the winner’s circle since she was a young girl—not that she isn’t still young, she’s only 19—and hasn’t looked back. Here are a few things you should know about Kylar!
Kylar will be taking over Horse&Rider’s Instagram on April 21, 2020
1. Kylar has a lifetime earning in excess of $300,000.
Remember how we mentioned she’s only 19? Kylar has been barrel racing longer than some people have been riding horses and is truly dedicated to the sport. A member of the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association and Better Barrel Races, you can watch this cowgirl run down the alley at both barrel races and rodeos. Hopefully we will see her run down the alley of the Thomas & Mack Center for the National Finals Rodeo in the near future.
2. Kylar attends Texas Christian University.
She is a double major in finance and accounting. When she’s not riding her horses, she loves to read books.
3. Kylar has a long list of barrel-racing accomplishments.
She is a four time RFD-TV’s The American Semi-Finals qualifier, 2019 and 2020 top 15 at the Jr. American rodeo, 2017 and 2019 Barrel Futurities of America youth champion, 2016 Better Barrel Races Summer Shootout champion, and the Josey Jr. World Champion in 2012, 2016, and 2017. The cowgirl has placed—and won—at professional rodeos and has won countless jackpot barrel races.
4. All three of the barrel horses Kylar currently runs are sired by Frenchmans Guy.
Kylar has ran many horses around the barrels in her short lifetime, but her current team of horses are all siblings. The three horses on her string are French Revierra, Guys Voodoo Bug, and Margarita Red Rita.
5. Kylar is a barrel racer by trade, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t tried other events.
Most recently you could see Kylar going down the fence with a cow as she competed in cow horse events. She’s no longer competing in cow horse, so we’re excited to see what comes next for Kylar.
