- Tell us a little about your horse age, gender and who their daddy is?
Flamin Mad AKA Anna is a 9 year old mare by Crush.
- State where you qualified
- Name of Arena where you qualified
- What was your placing
- How many times have you qualified for the best of the best or are you a first timer?
This is our third time qualifying.
- Tell us about the arena where you qualified – producers, ground, size of pen?
We qualified by placing 3rd at the BOTB Slot Race last year. I guess the producers are pretty great 😉 We absolutely love this show…the facilities, the people, everything about it.
- What has been your biggest win as a rider so far?
I would say my biggest win as a rider so far would be winning the Open 1D at the Best of the Best in 2017. Anna and I were draw 30 something, and our 15.4 held all day and all night (through the slot race), so we were very pleasantly surprised to get that win. It was also just one of the smoothest and prettiest runs we’ve made to this day.
- Who is the one person that made you the rider you are today?
Although there have been many many people who have helped me along the way, the answer to this question would have to be my dad, Kevin Burns. He not only simply taught me how to ride, but he also instilled the passion for horses in me, as well as a good work ethic. He always makes sure I have fun and thank my horses no matter what kind of run we have. He and my mom are the best grooms, chauffeurs, and videographers, too!
