When asked "What is your favorite part about being an equestrian?"
When you have a great ride on your horse and you know that all your hard work and home work has paid off. But nothing beats the bond between me and my horse!

Meet our western sponsored rider Lauren Keeney
I am 17 years old from Middletown, Maryland. I became an equestrian at the age of 3 because my entire family had grown up riding horses. In 2014 - 2016, I began to compete in Maryland High School Rodeo. I currently compete in NBHA, Maryland IBRA, Dave Martins Bull Ride Manias, and am looking to do Sebra and APRA's this year. During my first year of Maryland High School Rodeo, I was a qualifier for nationals and went ...to nationals in Rock Springs, Wyoming to compete in Barrel Racing and Pole Bending. During my second year of Maryland High School Rodeo ,in 2015, I qualified for nationals as Barrel Racing Champion and All Around Cowgirl, I also qualified for Goat Tying and Pole Bending, and made the trip back out to Rock Springs, Wyoming for nationals. In 2016 ,I was named State Champion Pole Bender, and National Qualifier in Barrel Racing and Pole Bending. I have 2 horses named Pierre and Girl, both are barrel horses. Pierre is more of a big pen arena horse, and Girl is my little scrappy rodeo pen horse. Pierre is 7 and I have had him a year, Girl is 16 and I have had her around 4 years, she is the horse that has won me most of my titles. My favorite part about being an equestrian is the responsibility it carries with it ,for instance taking care of the horses, and making time to practice everyday. I also like the tough competition that comes with being in the rodeo world , it pushes me to become a better rider.
