How important is it to you to have won an INFR Championship? 
A world title; means the “WORLD” to me! I have qualified to the INFR 12 times.  My first INFR was when I was the young age of 12, held in Rapid City, South Dakota. Finally winning the title I have always dreamed about, made me feel so complete now the tough part comes, trying to win a world title back to back.”

What is your most memorable run at the 2009 INFR?
My most memorable moment of the 2009 INFR was when I got to take my victory lap around the arena hearing world champion behind my name, and seeing everyone cheering.”

Who has been your biggest influence in Indian Rodeo?
There are so many influences I can’t just pick one. Most of my influence comes from my family (“The Late” Kesley Edmo, Sr., grandma Maxine Edmo, my parents, sister Lee Ann and her children), but also my friends & the heart and power from my horses that always keeps me going.”
