Jade Rindlisbacher Finishes First at State Rodeo Competition

by Rillene Nielsen

Spanish Fork freshman Jade Rindlisbacher placed first in the pole-bending competition at the Utah High School Rodeo Association Championship held last Saturday.

Pole-bending is a timed competition where rider and horse have to weave through a series of 6 poles place 21 feet apart on the ground.  Knocking over a pole adds five seconds to the competitor’s time while failure to follow the course causes disqualification.

Jade is featured in a great article by Jared Lloyd in the June 3rd issue of the Daily Herald.  The link is provided below.

Congratulation Jade!
