What does it take to win on the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) circuit? Hard work, guts, and a few good horses. And for Jackie Ganter, a family connection to the sport of barrel racing helps, too.

Jackie’s mother, Angela, is also a competitive barrel racer, but as a kid, Jackie took a different path and competed in English riding. That changed when she was 12 years old and decided to try running barrels.
