Hernando County Teacher Dies in Rodeo Accident

A Hernando County e-School teacher and well-known barrel racer passed away last weekend after a rodeo accident, one day before her 28th birthday.

The woman loved rodeo life and was a professional barrel racer.

Last month, the woman and her horse ran their last race together at a rodeo in Mississippi. Her horse took off out of the ring and slipped on pavement and they both went down. She passed away from her injuries last Sunday.
