Emma is the daughter of Dennis and Michelle Auslam and she is 17 years old. She is about to go into her senior year of high school. Emma has been around horses all of her life and has competed in 4-H and junior high rodeos since 8th grade. She competes in barrel racing, pole bending, breakaway roping, and goat tying. One aspect Emma really enjoys about working with horses is developing a connection with them. She is looking towards eventually competing at a higher level in barrel racing events. Emma plans on attending South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD to complete her general education courses next fall.
