After their smash hit debut last year we couldn’t wait to invite Kelsey, Shelby, and the rest of the Trixie Chicks gang back to BreyerFest 2019!
We learned more about Trick Riding last year but for anyone who needs a little refresher; Trick Riding is when a rider performs dangerous and dazzling stunts on a galloping horse. But don’t worry – trick horses are trained to perform even when they’re not being controlled by their riders (who are a bit preoccupied with their own tricks!). As the Trixie Chicks say on their website ‘’trick riding requires physical and mental courage, athletic agility, keen horsemanship, and a trusted equine teammate.’’
The Trixie Chicks are an elite all-female specialty trick riding act based out of Springfield, MO and they tour the country entertaining crowds at rodeos and horse events including the PRCA Rodeo circuit where they have been wildly popular.
The main members of the Trixie Chicks group are Kelsey Lauberth and Shelby Epperson who are life-long equestrians and horse lovers. Previous members include Ashlee Hearod and Miko McFarland. Shelley rides Cookie while Kelsey rides a selection of horses including Lightning, King, Cookie, Jackson, and Cody. Both girls take the bond between horse and rider to the new level and dazzle audiences by hanging by one foot with their heads dragging on the ground to standing proudly atop their horses at a full gallop.
In case you couldn’t tell from the photos the only thing brighter than the Trixie Chicks’ outfits are their personalities! Shelby and Kelsey are really looking forward to talking to lots of young fans about getting involved with trick riding and showing the crowds their best tricks! As the girls say ‘’ I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say "because of you, I didn't give up." I'm not saying it's going to be easy. I'm just saying it's going to be worth it!’’ What an inspiration!
These dare devils will be performing during the day in the Covered Arena and at our evening Celebration of Horses performances on both Friday and Saturday evenings!
