Kendal Fletcher from Kerrobert finished 4th this past weekend for breakaway roping at the Saskatchewan High School Rodeo Association's provincials in Swift Current.

Kendal has will be graduating from high school this year and has been riding horses since she was three years old.

Last weekend in Swift Current, Fletcher wound up with a 12.7 second time in the long go after a 10 second penalty was added for breaking the barrier. In the short go on Sunday she recorded at time of 11.5 seconds, using her second rope in the ride.

Fletcher caught up with us and talked about one of the main obstacles she had to overcome on the weekend.

"Since I started rodeoing, I've never been really good under pressure," Kendal said. "Whenever I put myself in a situation that's 'do or die' I usually tend to freeze up, but this weekend I just kinda knew I had to go out and give it my all no matter what happens, so I was really proud of myself for being able to overcome that."

Now from July 16th to 22nd she'll get to compete with 1700 contestants from 5 Canadian provinces, 42 different states and Australia.

Kendal gets in about 3-4 days of practice each week and her families arena. She said after high school she is hoping to get into the college rodeo scene and hopes to one day go pro.

Kendal started learning to breakaway rope when she was seven years old, and we asked why she decided to stick with it over the years.

"There's not really any feeling in the world that can match sitting in the box on your horse," Kendal said. "when everything is still and nothings moving, your just waiting to nod and you can feel your horses heart beat between your legs. There's nothing like that."

The National High School Finals Rodeo will take place in Gillette, Wyoming from July 16th to the 22nd.
