Fun Facts about Dona: After raising a family and finding the right horse, Dona decided instead of training barrel horses for others, she would try to qualify for the WNFR. Not only did she qualify, she finished the 2019 season in seventh place. Her success has come aboard “High Valor” an 11-year-old gelding that she calls Valor. He has been selected as the AQHA/WPRA Horse of the year in 2019 and 2020. Nearly as famous as her horse is her dog Rosie, a Miniature Australian Shepherd that travels with her. Dona’s husband, John, is a talented artist that made his living with his wife by his side at National Saddlery in Oklahoma City for years.
