Jr Girl Pole Bender
St George, UT
Making a splash her first year as a Junior Girl is Utah’s own, Izzy Coughlin. In 2020 Izzy claimed the NLBRA Little Wrangler World Champion Barrel Racing title, in 2021 she took home the Junior Girl World Champion Pole Bending championship.
When not rodeoing Izzy is training ponies, hitting the UT slopes skiing or enjoying the sun at Lake Powell. On top of her athletic ability she is talented in other ways also being fluent in Chinese.
Transitioning her big yellow barrel horse Sis, to poles she set a new personal record in the second go round running a 20.01. As Izzy continues to compete and working towards he goals she says “it is important to always be willing to learn or adjust and focus is key. I try to always keep my head in the game because I know my teammates do!”
