Becca began her show career at the age of two at the
Oklahoma State Fair where she showed her donkey, Oklahoma Tango in the
halter division earning a blue ribbon. This was the first of many trips to
the show ring throughout her life to this point. She has traveled all over
the United States showing donkeys and mules and this has become a great
passion in her life earning many Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion
titles. She has also learned that sometimes she comes out of the show ring
without a ribbon and to use this to work harder for the next show.
Every afternoon when school is out
you will find her on her donkey Oklahoma’s Painted Lady or her mule
Patchasaurass practicing in preparation to go to the next event. She has
helped expand the family business “Garrett Mammoth Jackstock” in
showcasing the abilities of mammoth donkeys. She also has a great passion
for helping children who want to learn to ride. Just seeing the smiles on
their face after a ride makes her day.
Becca joined the FFA chapter at
her high school when she was a freshman. She has competed on many teams
through FFA as well as doing a Proficiency on specialty animals. She
placed 3rd in the state this year in Specialty animal production
entrepreneurship/placement. She will build on this agriculture proficiency
and hopefully place higher this next year to be able to compete at the
national level. She also received the Star Greenhand award at the FFA
banquet as a sophomore and has held a FFA office for two years.
Many special people have helped
Becca along the way and she is so very thankful for each of them. She
realizes she would not have had the success she has achieved without their
help. When she steps in the saddle in the show ring she will have a
leather cross on her saddle horn that says “Cowboy Tough” representing the
greatest cowboy she has ever known and her inspiration. Most of all she is
thankful for the talent and abilities that God has blessed her with and to
him she gives all of the glory.
Meanwhile back at the ranch she is
living life knowing her Dozer is cheering her on in every competition she
