Michele McLeod’s story is truly one of dedication, perseverance and the love of horses—as well as an example that when something is meant to be, nothing is going to stop it, like her iconic partnership with Highpoint Barrel Horse’s stallion, Slick By Design.

Foals by Slick By Design are winning every weekend, but it all goes back to how Michele and Slick teamed up in the beginning, a story that secured their names in the history books forever.

From their Fort Smith Derby championship to their first NFR, from Michele overcoming a devastating accident at the end of 2016 to make it back to the Finals the following year to her role as a mom and watching her daughters win at the highest levels, to her clinics and breeding program, we cover it all in this episode of The Money Barrel.
