Fun Facts about Hailey: She and her great horse DM Sissy Hayday “Sister” are such a dynamic duo it’s hard to imagine her riding anything else. But she can, she does and she will. Hailey has spent part of this year competing at futurity events and has been seasoning horses for the next step in her rodeo journey. She and her mother, Lesli Kinsel trained Sister, so it only makes sense that they would be working on the next superstar in their stable. She recently got to show her athletic ability by throwing the first pitch at a Texas Ranger’s Game at Globe Life Field, the place she won her 2020 world championship on her blond bombshell Sister. She has another Palomino mare that she has been winning on, “Jules” DH Jess Stellar. She has a degree in agriculture economics from Texas A & M University and similar to pursuing that degree, her approach to barrel racing is all business. She won the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association title in 2017 aboard Sister and was proud to be representing the Aggies.
