Kinlie Brennise lassos championship as breakaway roper
Reserve all-around, barrel racing champion also among honors
July 26, 2015
Despite the name of the venue in which they competed, there's nothing small about the achievements of Northwest Colorado's own.
Kinlie Brennise claimed multiple titles during the national finals of National Little Britches Rodeo Association over the past week in Pueblo, including World Champion Junior Girls Breakaway Roper, Reserve World Champion Barrel Racer and third in trail course, all of which led to her being named Reserve World All-Round in the junior girls division, second in total points only to Peyton's Grace Hill.
Kinlie beat out Hill and all others in the breakaway with a three-day time of 8.9 seconds to win her second top honor in the discipline, having also taken World Champion in barrel racing in previous years.
Also competing at the national finals were Amber Salazar; Kinlie's older brother, Kasen; and Maybell siblings Cutter, Casey and Cactus Barnes, among nearly 1,000 kids ages 5 to 18 who were at the event.
