Eight-year-old Haley Fauste is a rodeo enthusiast. She likes the horses, the events, but mostly, she likes winning.
In just her second year with the Kentucky Junior Rodeo Association (KJRA), Fauste has more trophy belt buckles than her horse has legs.
Through the September to May rodeo season, Fauste competed in 10 rodeos in the state, garnering annual points along the way.
She competes in goat-tying, barrel racing, pole bending, dummy roping and mutton busting.
Her favorite, she said, would have to be goat tying.
