Carlee Pierce is returning to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo for the second straight year.
As with every NFR sophomore, she will better know what to expect when she arrives in Las Vegas in early December. She’ll know what it means to best care for her horse, Dillion, a 12-year-old buckskin gelding she’s had since April 2011. She’s also got a pasture full of other great barrel horses.
A native Albertan, Pierce is in her native land this week competing at the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton, Alberta. Upon completion of that championship, she will return home to Stephenville, Texas, and prepare for ProRodeo’s grand finale at the Thomas & Mack Center. She is working closely with TwisTED Rodeo and Rodeo Media Relations for this year’s NFR, so we will be posting daily blog updates that will appear HERE and on her own website, CarleePierce.com.
It’s nice to welcome one of ProRodeo’s biggest stars to TwisTED Rodeo. Along with this type of coverage, we also will be providing stories and storylines to the people who have been supportive of Pierce for so long, those in northwest Oklahoma, where she lived for so many years, to north Texas to Alberta.
All along the way, each piece will appear in TwisTED Rodeo, just as many others have over the last couple of years.
The foundation for this site is to present high quality rodeo news and information. I think this is another great step in that direction.
