Born and raised in Loveland, Colorado, Taryn Boxleitner has spent most of her 20 years surrounded by rodeo athletes–the two-legged and four-legged kind. An accomplished barrel racer, Taryn rodeos professionally through the WPRA and college rodeos for Colorado State University in Fort Collins. There, she pursues a degree in biomedical sciences with a dream of becoming a large animal reproductive or rehab vet. Growing up in a rodeo family, she travels with her Mom, Kari, and brother Tyler, as well as her puppy partner in crime Lucy. When she isn’t on the rodeo rode, you can find Taryn at home studying or exercising her dream team of horses: Hot Bug Light “Hottie,” My Dad is Trashed “Taxi,” and Royal Navastar “Whiskey.” Her passion for what she does is contagious, and you can’t help but fall in love with every one of her blaze-faced sorrel gelding. Be on the lookout for Taryn this year hitting the rodeos in Colorado, Wyoming, Texas and everywhere else!
