Albuquerque, NM—March 21, 2023 – Four-time Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) and reigning World Champion barrel racer Hailey Kinsel is now a coach on BarrelRacing.com, adding her extensive knowledge and winning know-how to the star-studded online training platform.
Based in Cotulla, Texas, Kinsel and her standout palomino DM Sissy Hayday, “Sister,” have quickly become contemporary barrel racing icons. Over the last few years, the World Champion and six-time National Finals Rodeo (NFR) qualifier has consistently stayed at the top of the rankings, setting several earnings and speed records along the way.
Kinsel and Sister’s list of victories is long, the most recent being arguably one of the most iconic runs in barrel racing history inside the Thomas & Mack during Round 9 of the 2022 NFR. Not only did Kinsel clock the fastest time of the 2022 NFR in Round 9 with a 13.34-second run, her reins flipped over Sister’s head on the backside of the second barrel and she completed the run with those reins on just one side of Sister’s neck. The run had barrel racing fans comparing Kinsel and Sister to greats like barrel racing legend Charmayne James and Scamper across social media—an allusion to their historic bridleless run at the NFR in 1985.
In her new series, filmed exclusively for BarrelRacing.com, Kinsel covers everything from barrel racing fundamentals to more advanced topics. She also gives a breakdown of her winning process and strategy, explaining why she does everything she does and how that helps her win at rodeos. Some of the topics she covers include:
- Patterning young horses,
- Tuning rodeo horses
- Barrel racing tack and gear 101
- Problem solving
- Helping mares succeed
