Barrel racer readies for Franklin Rodeo

She competed in her first Franklin Rodeo in 2023, but it was back for another run at it with her chocolate palomino, “Pistol”.  Pistol is not so much her horse as he is her partner in the competition.

“Usually when I turn my first barrel the way he turns it, I know it’s going to be a good run. It’s pretty exciting” said Stodghill.
