OPLIN, Texas - Back in early June, Oplin's Bailey Ryan was out in Des Moines for her first trip to Nationals for barrel racing. Bu after a disappointing finish, she got right back up on the horse, literally.
Ryan dominated this past weekend in Perry, Georgia. The Jim Ned 13-year-old took the National Barrel Horse Association Youth World title, finishing with a time of 14.622 seconds. That's more than two tenths of a second quicker than the runner up.
Along with the monetary prize, Ryan also took home a new horse trailer, saddle, belt buckles, feed, and a pair of nice new boots.
