Amber Moore takes Round 8 in Barrel Racing at the 2017 National Finals Rodeo

Amberleigh Moore does it again!! She took the win for Round 8!

“With all three go-round buckles I’ve won here this year, they have all been really close in the 13.5’s,” Moore said. “So, this has been pretty consistent for Paige. Yeah, this is Paige’s playpen, but we didn’t get here because we were perfect,” Moore said. “We don’t have consistency on the ground, and these horses have to adjust every single night we come out there. I am very proud of her.”

 

Here is a great video Silver Lining Herbs did with Paige. Amber talks about her personality and riding her bareback.

Moore has won $104,346 at this year’s WNFR, putting her in second place in the world standings. Tillar Murray took second with a 13.73. Ivy looked great last night, her and J Lo are hanging in there and are currently sitting first in the average! Go Ivy!

Taci Bettis hit a barrel last night but I have to say, she had such a fantastic run going, her first barrel was FLAWLESS!

I loved seeing Brittany and Canman. He is really something to watch! I hated to see Hailey hit the third barrel. Joe Beaver seemed to be upset too yelling “Pick your spot!!!” HA!

If you missed Round 8, here it is:
