Amberley Snyder
Amberley Snyder inspires us to find the courage
to nurture and foster dreams by expanding
her comfort zones.

Life is a journey, not a destination. Consider that set backs and failures are unidentified gifts, providing learning opportunities to those who are creative!

Practice focusing on the process, not the outcome. In 1997, I was honored by the Rodeo Historical Society with the prestigious Tad Lucas Award at the Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City, and again was called to the podium in 2006 as an inductee into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame. Those unimaginable accolades were never on my radar, but proved to me persistence and resourcefulness paid off.

Western Barrel Racing Classic.

It takes insight and maturity to identify life’s blessings. The 2015 American Rodeo Fan Favorite Barrel Racer Amberley Snyder is an amazing example of using persistence and resourcefulness in ones favor. I met Amberley at one of my Utah Barrel Racing Clinics. She was one of many talented, bright 12 year-old over achievers with Gold Buckle dreams. She went on to win the World All-around Championship in the National Little Britches Rodeo Association, her next goal the NFR, until fate stepped in and Amberley’s winning journey changed.

A single car accident left Amberley paralyzed from the waist down. She received the post surgery diagnosis that she would not ride again, let along walk. Amberley would not accept doctors' predictions that both riding and walking would not be in her future.

Cowgirl Hall of Fame Induction Luncheon.

This spring, Amberley graduates with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural Education; her next destination is a Masters Degree. On her journey, Amberley has become an amazing motivational speaker and inspiration to audiences of every age.

After winning 3rd in the 2D average at the 2014 Sharon Camarillo Western Barrel Racing Classic, Amberley has received a Fan Favorite Exemption to The March 1st American, the largest one day rodeo in history. If Amberley can win the barrel race, she will be rewarded with a million dollar bonus!

Amberley is relishing in the journey life’s roads have taken her. She inspires us to find the courage to nurture and foster dreams by expanding comfort zones, pushing creative thinking and fostering training and talents. For more detail in this story, click here.

This coming year, take account of your personal journey and the daily blessings we easily overlook in search of our destination.
