The Wrangler Exhibitor of the Month for January is Mallory Dobbs from Olympia Washington.
Dobbs is a Youth exhibitor who has been showing for 10 years.
Dobbs shows her 8-year-old Gelding; named RS Sure Fooled You, also know as Wylee.
Dobbs recalls here first show at a local pinto show with her first horse, Bubba, a 7-year-old Paint.
“We both had never shown before so it was definitely interesting, Dobbs said. “But every day I am thankful for the learning experiences we had together because it made me the rider I am today.”
Nowadays, Dobbs shows Wylee, which was a new experience because she bought him as a 3-year-old training him from scratch. Together they compete at local, and a few open, Pinto shows in Washington and Oregon. They also competed at their first Pinto World Championship show in 2013.
“The thing I like most about showing my horse is the feeling I get when all of my hard work finally pays off,” Dobbs said. “My dream was to take my very own horse that I trained to the World show, and when I came home with multiple titles I cannot even explain the emotions I had.”
