Congratulations to Bernt Nelson, who is studying agricultural economics at North Dakota State University! His photo won this week’s Omega Alpha Equine Horsecity.com/Quarter Horse News Action Photo Contest. Along with the photo, Bernt submitted this caption: "Ashley Ann Anderson is the girl in the photo and that is her pride and joy barrel horse Lilly. We met in college and we are moving down to Ames, Iowa, where Ashley will be attending Veterinary school. Her father is also a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. This is from a rodeo we both participated near my hometown. My cousin, who is an artist, is working on a patriotic-themed portrait of this photo.”

Two-time world champion barrel racer Brittany Pozzi is a busy woman. And last March, she had an especially hectic day. She competed in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo finals – then hopped on a plane to make it to the first Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic in nearby College Station.
Brittney Barr’s horse may be handicapped, but a rodeo fan would never know it in the arena. The Ada, Oklahoma cowgirl’s horse has only one eye, but it doesn’t affect his work.
