CFR43-Barrel Racer Overcomes Tragedy


Colby Gilbert of Maple Creek, Sask

LBR Colby Gilbert of Maple Creek, SK will be running Badger, a horse that belongs to her travelling partner Chelsea Moore of Pouce Coupe, B.C., at 2016 CFR.

Colby lost her stud horse, French Streaktorodeo, in a freak pasture accident in late October. Colby and Badger are getting acquainted at her home near Lethbridge.

“We’re heading up tomorrow and we’re going to hit a few jackpots along the way,” she says.

In memory of her great horse, this is a photo of Colby and French Streaktorodeo competing at 2016 Cowtown Pro Rodeo. Photo courtesy 2016 Cowtown Pro Rodeo, Maple Creek, Sask/photographer Mike Copeman.
