My name is Kinley Keyser, I am fourteen years old and I go to Central high school. I enjoy going to rodeos, barrel races, parades and really anything that involves horses! I have been around the rodeo scene ever since I was a little girl because I’ve always had a love and passion for the sport of rodeo.
