Throwback to Rookie Chuckwagon Year with the NWSPCCA in 2009, where it all began…
As I climb into the wagon box, the whole world just seems to disappear. My worries float away and my senses grow stronger. I grab the leather lines the same way I have a thousand times before and say “alright”.

Pulling away from the trailer, aluminum horseshoes pound the ground and grow to a thunderous roar as I speed up. I head towards the track, and my heart begins to pound as I hear the horn blow from the previous heat. Then everything around me disappears, and the only things on my mind are my horses and the race. As I roll onto the track, there is stillness.

“…everything around me disappears, and the only things on my mind are my horses and the race.”

In the back of my mind there are a million thoughts of what could go wrong, but as long as they stay in the back of my mind I know I’ll be just fine…
