Fun Facts about Beau: The all-around hand won the goat tying at the 2019 College National Finals Rodeo for Oklahoma Panhandle State University in Goodwell. She learned a lot through her college rodeo experience with coach world champion saddle bronc rider Robert, Etbauer. She also did well in the classroom majoring in biology and plans to use that to go to nursing school. She has been inspired by the hard work and generosity of her parents. They have a ranch and feedlot in flint hills of Kansas. Her parents and older sister have all had their turn in the rodeo arena but Beau is the first of the family to qualify for rodeo’s ultimate championship. Her year got a boost when she won the championship in August at the Caldwell Night Rodeo and got to make a victory lap in front of the rowdies and civies. That momentum carried on into September where she won over $20,000 on the Northwest rodeo run.
