Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, July 1, 2015 9B li II Cheyla Galloway, 17, was born and raised in Clovis, before moving to Quincy when she was 3 years old. She said she's always had a passion for horses for as long as she can remember. "I believe I fell in love with horses when I was 5," she recalled. "And when we moved to just outside the main town of Quincy we were able to have some." Growing up, Cheyla owned a number of horses with names like Sunshine, Cutter and Dusty. She's had her present gelding quarter horse, Moose, for five years and rides him in competitions. Her family lives near Greenhorn Ranch in the outskirts of Quincy, where they own three horses, two of which are Cheyla's, with plenty of open space for riding. At around 12, "I started to become interested in learning new disciplines with my horse when I started taking 'English' riding lessons," which is a skill that has the horse jumping over horizontal barriers set to various heights, "that helped me a lot with my balance." It's a way to develop a lot of patience between you and your horse while it's learning, "because both you and your horse need time to come to an understanding of each other's aptitudes." After countless hours of practice and years of experience, she knows Moose is ready for rodeo competition, which include events like barrel racing and pole bending, in which several poles are lined up for the rider to weave between. Cheyla said she's learning to rope steer as well, although she's not ready to take that discipline to rodeo competitions just yet. She said she's a natural competitor, but this certainly won't be her first rodeo. She's competed at the Silver Buckle Rodeo in Taylorsville a number of times through the years. "And I've also competed at the Plumas County Fair." In fact, in 2010 she said she won the all around champion buckle and a ribbon. "Mounting up and riding hard really gets the adrenaline going when you're competing." Her competitor at the Silver Buckle Rodeo, fellow contestant NicheUe Gordon, is a good friend and Cheyla said she wishes her the best in the Fourth of July competition. "One of the things I've really wanted to do is to win the rodeo queen title, but I don't let the prospects of losing upset me too much either." She'll be improving her riding skills next year through the equine class offered at Feather River College, which also has a school rodeo team. Her ultimate dream, Cheyla shared, is to "purchase a ranch in Montana after I'm done with school, where I want to raise horses, cattle and farm animals." She definitely plans on riding the rest of her life, she insisted, which she likens to riding on the mythological Pegasus. "When I'm in the saddle, it's a joy. I feel like my horse has wings as we gallop down the trail." Cheyla Galloway with Moose are ready to compete for title of Rodeo 2015 Silver Buckle Rodeo competition in Taylorsville.
