Future 4-Star Rodeo

Audrey Cowan

Hello, my name is Audrey! I am a 16-year-old who lives in Southern Ky. Horses have been a part of my life from a very young age. I started riding as soon as I could walk, and started competing when I was 3. I currently own 8 personal horses and different client horses all year round. I rodeo, show in club shows, train wild mustangs, and camp a lot all with my 4-Star! Our 4-star has been in my family for 17 years. From picking up wild horses to traveling around the country for rodeo, I wouldn't trust any other brand!

I started roping two years ago with a trainer in the hopes to make the high school rodeo team. This year I made the team and participate in both team roping and chute dogging. My goal would be to ultimately steer wrestle too before my senior year. I am currently hold a 4.0 GPA and am 3rd in my class at Boyd High School. I am in both honors and AP classes. In the future I would like to attend A&M University in College Station and become a veterinarian.

Chance Leatherman

My name is Chance Leatherman. I'm currently finishing my first year at Calpoly SLO. Riding reined cowhorses is my first love, but surfing is a close second. I'm lucky I live somewhere I can do both. My horse Kodi (Cash has the Blues) and I train just about everyday with Teddy Robinson. When I'm done riding I usually head out into the surf a short distance away. My goals this year are to continue competing in the reined cowhorse events, finish another year of school and to ride bigger waves. I think it's important to note that our industry, whether it be cowhorse, cutting, rodeo, is under fire right now. We have to protect and preserve it. Moving forward I will make a point to do whatever I can to help make the horse industry live on.

I am from Youngsville, Louisiana!! I fell in love with the sport about two years ago and don't regret a thing. One of my main goals is to be able to qualify for a high school finals rodeo. The sport brings many ups and downs but it's all about how you come back from them.

Hayden Blevins

Winning Reserve Champion at the Texas High School State Finals this year has been one of my proudest accomplishments. I am looking forward to attending Nationals! I am a sophomore at Panther Creek CISD, where I maintain an A average and am a member of the National Honors Society. I take great pride in overcoming obstacles in my life and achieving rodeo goals that I have set for myself. I am grateful for my parents' encouragement and support. I look forward to the next two years of High School Rodeo and plan on continuing into college, where I will pursue a degree in accounting. 

Lauren Amour

Hello! My name is Lauren Amour and I have loved my 4-Star Trailer for years. I compete and travel many times a month and my LQ has been an absolute life saver on the road. It keeps up with the hustle and still looks new! I am graduating high school this year with a 4.4 GPA and I am excited to be attending Texas A&M University Commerce in the fall to major in Equine Studies. I have competed in barrel racing and pole bending for 10 years with the blessing of a few amazing horses! I hope to buy my WPRA permit this summer and work towards filling it later this year to earn my professional card on my horse Ellie. I have had to face many unfortunate injuries and tough times with my horses the past few years, and I now live by the phrase, "Never take it for granted" . Keeping that in mind keeps me going and allows me to appreciate every ride and moment spent with my equine partners.

Malorie Ellis

Rodeo hasn't always been in my family. We started about four years ago when the first horse we had got hurt, and my dad bought me my first barrel horse. It took some time for us to learn, and we are still learning, but once we were in, we knew there was no going back. I fell in love with barrel racing right away. I soon made it my goal to win a buckle. About a year and a half later, I had won my first buckle in the straits at a play day. It was so exciting, and I began to make new goals. I later won buckles in poles, barrels, and straights. I even won a reserve all around bracelet. I then made another goal to win a saddle. It was so exciting once I won my first saddle. I was so thankful for all my family and my teammate (my horse) had done for me! I then made goals to fix my mistakes and shave off time. My horse and I soon were getting better and better and we still are. I love the horse I own with all my heart. He is like family. I don't know what I would do without him. He's like my big dog. He will literally come up to you and rest his head on your shoulder. He is also a treat monster. Again, I love him with all my heart and I don't know what I would do without him.

Presley Kobold

Hi, My name is Presley Kobold. I started riding at age 4 on lead-line in Gymkhana's. I got my first horse from my Mimi- a bald faced, blue eyed palomino named Blue. We started together on barrels going to jackpots about 4 years now. Last year I got my second horse, Mister Tommy Chex! He's a big beautiful bay finished on barrels, but hot as a firecracker! I love all the great friends I've made through barrel racing. I just want to keep training and learning as much as I can. My goal is to hopefully one day make it to the Jr. NFR. I want to work hard and see how much I can accomplish in this sport.

Reina Romero

Hello, I am Reina Romero from Tucson, Arizona! I am 16 years old and the third generation of rodeo in my family. I have been riding since before I could walk. This next Fall I will be a Junior at Mountain View High School. I attend four barrel racing/rodeo associations all year round, along with many open rodeos here and there. However my sights are set on applying and preparing myself for the next high school rodeo season. As an incoming junior I hope to play my cards right and place in all three of my events this coming season as well as add breakaway roping to my events. I barrel race, pole bend, and goat tie as of right now. A few years back while I was still in the junior high division, I placed top 15 for barrels in the Arizona High School Rodeo Association. In 2016 I won both 2D saddles for Cowgirls Cowboys Open Barrel Racing Association and Southern Arizona Barrel Racing Association. This season I've been bouncing back from a trailer accident, losing one of my horses and the other two getting knee surgery, but in March I was blessed with a new barrel horse and a new-to-me 4-Star trailer! This year I've pushed through my hardships and I've accomplished placing in the top ten in goat tying and barrel racing for the Willcox Junior Rodeo Association. Next season I will be a part of all the same associations and I plan on working harder towards my goals. I have faith in my horses and myself. I don't only work hard inside the arena, I also work very hard at my academics and have been inducted into my school's chapter of the National Honors Society. I hope to represent 4-Star with my all, inside and outside the arena. Thank you for this opportunity.
