ARNETT PLACES THIRD
Magoffin County High School Freshman Jackie Beth Arnett placed third in both the youth class and in the open class (competing against all ages) at the Madison County Fairgrounds last month. Arnett competes in barrel racing throughout the region.
Right now, Arnett competes in the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) league competitions, but she hopes to also get into the National Barrel Horse Association, which Arnett said would have more opportunities to win bigger sums of money.
Only one year and seven months in, Arnett has already competed in more than 20 competitions, sticking mostly to shows in Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana.
