Long before that however, Lainee and TK Sampson and their two boys have been raising cattle and horses in Western South Dakota and winning in the rodeos and futurity scene. We can’t wait to talk about how their program is growing, standing Irish Pay, what breakaway is adding to the breeding scene and more.

Her story and approach to barrel racing is a bit different than many of our guests. She takes the winters off and is a full time school teacher. It is obviously working for her and her horses and goes to show that you can win inside the rodeo arena and have a full life and career outside of it.

Ep. 48 Troy Flaharty
54:55Troy Flaharty is known throughout the industry for his balanced and high quality bits that horses have won millions in.
