7-Year-Old Rodeo Star

I just ran across this story. I love it. Reminds me of a certain grandmother I used to know!

***

If you’ve ever been on a horse, you know how powerful it can be. Little Haley Miller from Bristol has been riding with her mom and grandma since her neck was strong enough to support her head. Now the 7 year old is turning heads every time she races out into the arena.

Haley’s favorite song is “Cowgirls Don’t Cry” by Brooks and Dunn.  You don’t see any tears from this “Cowgirl”. Riding a 1,500 pound horse would scare a lot of people. But throw out the fact Haley weighs only 40 pounds. This little firecracker has been riding by herself since she was 3.

  2. yep, definitely reminds me of the book on the sidebar! 😀
