Amberley has been riding since she was three and competing in rodeo since she was seven years old. Rodeo has been her passi…on since the first run she made and the love only got stronger as time went on.
In 2009, Amberley made it to the National High School Finals Rodeo as well as the National Little Britches Finals where she won the Finals and World All-Around titles as well as finishing in the top 6 in Pole Bending, Goat Tying and Breakaway Roping.
In January of 2010 Amberley was driving to the National Western Stock Show in Colorado when she was involved in a rollover car accident leaving her paralyzed from the waist down. Doctors told her she would never have any chance of recovery and that her days of rodeo were over. A year and a half later, she figured out how she can barrel race once again using a seatbelt, Velcro and another strap to hold her in place. She now not only competes in barrel racing but breakaway roping as well!
