Carmen Yarbrough recalls the day her daughter Melinda Yarbrough asked her to go to a barrel race.
"Mommy, I think I'm ready to go fast," said Melinda.
Now 27, Melinda is still going fast with her four horses traveling the east coast barrel racing circuit and is a six time NBHA World Qualifier.
Yarbrough takes her time buying and training her horses at her family farm in Henrico County, Virginia. Her family supports her every step of the way, but Yarbrough takes pride in doing it all. From traveling hundreds of miles for a show to cleaning stalls everyday. All for 15 seconds of speed and turns, and an adrenaline rush.
