Brynnlee Allred is in her final year of competition in the Utah Junior High Rodeo Association.
The thirteen-year-old cowgirl, a resident of Nephi, Utah, competes in the barrel racing, pole bending, goat tying, team roping, and breakaway roping.
The family has thirteen horses, of which Brynnlee rides Royal for the barrels, Cha Cha for the poles, Ohto for the breakaway, and Billy for the goat tying and team roping. Of all her horses, Royal is her favorite, because “she has an attitude like me,” Brynnlee said. “She’s sassy.”
Brynnlee is an eighth grade student at Juab High School, where she enjoys being with her friends and loves her honors math class. She is on the accelerated basketball and softball teams, plays volleyball and soccer, is a member of FFA and is on the honor roll.
Brynnlee also loves to sew in her sewing class in school and in 4-H. She has made an apron, pillow cases, pants, and a scripture case bag.
When she grows up, she’d like to be a veterinarian. The family has a Welch corgi dog named Roxie, a goat, sheep, and cattle in addition to their horses.
She has competed at state finals each of the last two years and finished in seventh place state-wide in the pole bending this past summer.
She has an older brother, Tyrell, an older sister, Destrilee, and a younger sister, Taigelee.
She is the daughter of Khristie and Perry Allred.
