Allie has carried the cuttin’ disease for as long as she can remember. From turn-back duties on her pony, competing as a youth and now showing her own horses as a non-pro; cutting has been a constant thread no matter her stage in life. Today, Allie is a pediatric speech therapist by day and an aspiring cutter by night. She lives near her family’s feedlot in central Kansas where she and her dad train and show cutting horses.
Allie values the fellowship within the cutting community as much as the sport itself. When her Kansas cutting family lost a special cowgirl in the youth, Allie’s love for the sport and the people in it grew ten-fold. “I’ve watched as our cutting community came together to help continue Shynia Randles’ legacy through annual youth scholarship cuttings,” Allie says. “This same team of people continuously helps me tune my horses and improve my showmanship. It really takes a village.”
Inspired by other strong women, Allie is excited to join the Art of the Cowgirl community where fellowship is the foundation for women improving their skills in the western industry. Allie looks forward to learning from Lindy and continuing to support the sport of cutting as a whole.
