Taylour Russell is the 2013 NWRA Ladies Barrel Racing & All-Around Champion. The 2013 season for Taylour was one she will always remember. Taylour and her NWRA Horse of the Year Gee Gee jumped out to the lead early in the season and never looked back. Russell won 17 checks in the regular season with 1st place wins at Conrad (Taylour’s home town), Polson, Harlowton and Butte. Coming into the finals Taylour had a commanding lead in both the Ladies Barrel Racing and the All-Around, having both titles secured before pulling into the Civic Center in Butte, MT. Congratulations Taylour, we look forward to seeing you defend your titles next year.

Our condolences go out to the Tew Family. Yesterday their great horse Smooth My Feathers went on to greener pastures. She was 26 years old. Feathers was a domineering force in the NRA. Colt Tew won the NRA Junior Barrel Racing title 1994 - 1996 and 1998. Cadee Tew won the NRA Ladies Barrel Racing title 2000 - 2002. This great horse will never be forgotten.

Tayla Moeykens is the 2013 Northern Rodeo Association Junior Barrel Racing Champion. This year was a great year for Tayla! She won 17 checks through out the year, not only did she win plenty of checks to have her in the drivers seat coming into the finals but she also would have won or placed in the Ladies Barrel Racing through out the year with the times she was turning in. Tayla was riding her family raised & trained horse Cruzer who was honored with the Junior Barrel Racing Horse of the Year award. The 2013 finals was a little more special for Moeykens, getting to compete at the finals with one of her teachers and good buddy’s Bridger Chambers, the 2013 Northern Rodeo Association Champion Steer Wrestler. They both got to take a championship back home to Three Forks, MT. Congratulations Tayla and we can’t wait to see you next year and the years to come.
