The MK Quarter Horses Rodeo Team has made it to the National Competition in Rock Springs, Wyoming! All proceeds help cover expenses associated with the competition for two local teenagers.
Participating in the Ontario High School Rodeo is an opportunity of a lifetime. It creates many friendships, unforgettable memories, and creates some of the toughest cowgirls in the nation. Two Niagara County riders, Meghan Ebert, a freshman at Lewiston Porter High School and Jessie Fritton, a senior at Newfane High School, both trained by Melissa Koser at M.K. Quarter Horses, have made it to the National Finals competition in Rock Springs, Wyoming. This competition is the "World’s Largest Rodeo" and is held July 15-21, 2012. Over 1,500 students will be competing for over $200,000 in scholarship money and be seen by college recruiters from some of the best schools in the nation.
This is something the girls have worked very hard to accomplish but need some help from the community. They will be taking their horses across the country for the competition and are looking for sponsors to help pay for travel expenses as well as entry fees. If you are interested in supporting these girls as they take their talents to the next level, please contact Melissa Koser (570) 204-5281 or http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/114773 to make a donation and their dream a reality.
The Ontario High School Rodeo Association’s mission is to promote the positive image of rodeo, preserve the western heritage and maintain the highest regard for the livestock. It is dedicated to educating youth and instilling the value of good sportsmanship. As members of the Ontario High School Rodeo Association, Meghan and Jessie compete in front of sold out crowds in arenas located in Ontario, New York, and Michigan.
In order to compete, M.K. Quarter Horses requires all riders to maintain a minimum of a "B" average in school, be polite and courteous in all situations, and just plain ole have fun.
