6 Seasons

Stacey Martin’s teaching method breaks the sport into three parts: learning to compete (mental toughness), physical fitness and goat tying. She believes drills and slow work are paramount in developing the muscle memory required to be successful in rodeo. Martin’s students also practice in high-pressure situations such as relays and matches to prepare for competition days. Dismounting is another key aspect of the sport, so Martin helps students improve their horsemanship and work through any issues with their horses.
