 Kelli McLeod, Canadian Barrel Racer

EQ-Royal provides barrel racer with focused energy and stamina

Kelli McLeod is a barrel racer from Central Alberta where she operates her family's riding arena. Kelli has had experience riding competitively in many disciplines over the last 12 years but found her true calling in rodeo. She currently competes two horses and has two younger 2019 futurity prospect horses in training.

Now her backup horse, SR Two Frost is an 18 year old registered APHA gelding that Kelli had been running since 2011. SR Two Frost, also known as Fly, gave Kelli her start in rodeo and carried her though high school and college competitions. Kelli explains "I owe this horse the world".

Kelli's main competition horse right now is CSE Royal Rebel, also known as Hudson. Hudson is an 11 year old AQHA gelding that she has been running for 2 years. Kelli and Hudson compete in open barrel races and amateur rodeos. 

The two 2019 futurity prospects Kelli has in training are both four year old AQHA geldings sired by Famous Bugs.

While home during the off-season or in between competitions Kelli spends her time training and giving riding lessons as a CHA Level 2 English and Western Instructor. 

Kelli first started using BRL Equine Nutrition supplements in 2017 and quickly noticed the improvement in her horse's performance. She explains that "After starting my rodeo horse on EQ-Royal last year I noticed within the first month how much faster he was recovering after runs and that he felt just as strong the second or third day on the road as he had on the first. I was impressed with the focused energy he had, the stamina and his overall performance. EQ-Royal is a safe and effective way to help my horses reach their full potential". 

"Barrel Racing is a fast paced speed event, but the real tough part is keeping your horse sound, healthy and happy while spending every weekend on the road. I expect my horses to perform to the best of their abilities but I also try to give them every extra advantage I can, BRL Equine Nutrition helps me do that"
