Deb has been involved with horses all her life and learned to ride by "walking out" her dad's (Bud Forell) doggin'horse as soon as she could sit in the saddle. Her parents were on the rodeo trailthe summer she was born and her first bed was the manger of a two-horse trailer. "The majority of my riding when I was a kid was bareback with a piece of twine looped around the nose - it taught me to stay very balanced and why my favorite “bit” is the s-hack.”
She grew up competing in rodeos, horse shows and O-Mok-See (pattern horse racing). By the time she was an adult, she had won numerous state and national barrel racing awards. Her more recent accomplishments are multiple year end barrel racing championships in the Nebraska State Rodeo Assn (NSRA) and the Mid-States Rodeo Assn (MSRA) and setting a new record for most money won in a season for all events in the NSRA.
Both Steve and Deb are members of the American Quarter Horse Assn. Deb is also cardholder with theWomens Professional Rodeo Assn.(WPRA) competing in the Prairie Circuit.
