  • Between rodeos almost every weekend and her positions as Tecumseh FFA chapter president and varsity cheer captain, 17-year-old Colby Jane Hall keeps busy.
    Hall said her schedule would not be possible to maintain without assistance.
    “It’s not easy, but with a lot of help from parents and coaches and ag teachers, it all balances out eventually,” she said.
    This year was her third year at the International Finals Youth Rodeo, but she has been doing rodeos for as long as she can remember.
    “My mom’s side of the family did it,” Hall said. “Her dad did. On my dad’s side, they always kind of had horses. It just kind of turned into doing rodeos.”
    This week, Hall competed in barrel racing and pole bending. She said poles were her favorite because that is what her horse is better at.
    In the beginning of the week, Hall said she looked forward to making clean runs and meeting new people.
    Hall will be a senior in the fall, and already has plans for after graduation.
    “I plan to go to Oklahoma State University and study ag communications,” she said.
    Although Hall doesn’t know if she will continue competing in rodeos, she does want to continue doing barrel racing after high school.
