College Cowgirl

By Krista Lucas

The 2019 United Professional Rodeo Association finals saw a Kansas cowgirl, who is not only a hand with a rope and a horse but also one in the classroom, dominate the women’s events. Timber Allenbrand moved from Paola, Kan., to Stephenville, Texas, to chase her dreams and is someone whose hard work has translated to many areas of her life. Before that, she grew up competing in 4-H, youth rodeo and barrel races.

“I was a part of various parts of 4-H growing up. My mom, Trisha, barrel raced some in her twenties, but other than that I learned as we went in the rodeo world,” Allenbrand said. “Going way back, I first remember going to a barrel race in my pink boots. My mom stood at the gate and pointed to each barrel I was supposed to go to.”
