For those of you who don’t know Paige and her family – you are missing something special. From the minute we meant them, not only Paige, but all of them, had a special place in our hearts. Natalie Davidson is one of Paige’s special people in her life and it was not a surprise last year when Paige wanted to not only be part of the Best of the Best she want to be in the Best of the Best. Well 2012 she would not see that dream realized but 2013 would be a whole new story. With only a couple weeks to qualify Paige and Dirty got the job done winning the barrel race and getting tagged BOTB Qualifier!
From over coming Autism to meeting her barrel racing goals this little gal is something special and is without a doubt one to watch for the winners circle. Her family could not be more proud.
Her Mom sent this in and I thought I would leave it as it made me giggle thinking of them giggling. Her Dad sent this pic of her concentrating on her run to come.
