Rocksie Marchand may look like an everyday 9 year old: Playing basketball for Wilbur Elementary school, being a big sister to her younger siblings, and a kid out enjoying the seasons... But put her on her horse Roo, and it’s clear to see this beauty was born to ride.
Since the age of 3 Rocksie has been competing in many rodeo events. She has won hundreds of ribbons and buckles and a trophy almost as tall as she is.
Now at just 9 years of age she’s already the 2017 World Champion Ladies Barrel Racer at the Indian National Finals.
She’s even caught the attention on Governor Jay Inslee, a rider himself who made a comment that Rocksie can teach him a thing or two.
Today she is on the road to Texas to compete for National Champion in the American Rodeo.
Rocksie has a chance to win a million dollars. Let’s all root her on by following her on her Facebook page, Rocksie and Roo.
