Cora is 11yrs and started trick riding with Jerri Duce at age 4. This past summer her and the Young Gunz performed at several rodeos threw-out Alberta. Every show she takes pride in. Great young talent adds unblievable courage and determination to group. She spent extra time with Jerri and was riding Jerri's special horse Sable. Also got to ride with Raelynn Armstrong and Madison Macdonald during some practice time near Okotoks and she got the pleasure of being instructed by Niki Flundra. She idlizes her mentors and takes great pride in the opportunities they provide her. One day she hopes to be as great as they all are. Cora lives and breathes trickriding. If she is not on her horse she is hanging off furniture, fences and equipment. You name it, she can do a trick on it. If she had a choice she would go somewhere every day of the week trick riding. Cora is the daughter of chuckwagon racer Rae Croteau Jr. loves horses and takes pride in being a great performer. In between trick riding and keeping horses in shape Cora is part of the Lakeland competitive gymnastics club in Cold Lake, AB. Watch for her big smile at their next show!
