Barrel racing with her mare “Lady” and helping children and teens learn more about horses is what Shauna enjoys doing when not at school. She also remains a volunteer for the Philomath Frolic and Rodeo as their Raffle Prize Chairman.

WSSH Collegiate Representative (OSU)
Briana was born and raised in Canby, OR. With her twin brother, she grew up showing cattle, goats and horses. Competition and the love for animals have always been in her blood.
She first learned how to ride on her Grandparents Tennessee Walking Horse, Beamer. And then when she was ten, she had her own horse, a four-year-old green-broke Arabian mare. That was probably the best and worst decision ever made, but that smart little mare made her the toughest and best rider she could ever be.
Soon Briana moved on to Quarter horses, first with Otis, a 21 year-old gelding and later Max, an 11 year-old gelding. Max took her through many years of 4-H and two years of OHSET. Her newest horse is Watch The Tiger (aka Raider).
Team Penning and Ranch Sorting competitions have become a big part of her horse world. The people in CTPA, WVTPA, and RSNC have become some her favorite people to be around.
Briana is currently attending Oregon State University where she is majoring in Sociology and minoring in Psychology.
Besides her love for animals, she also enjoys traveling, singing, photography, and being outdoors. WSSH is a new found love that both she and Raider are excited to be part of.
