"Every morning I wake up and think about how there is somebody out there working hard to become better. If I want to be the best that means I have to work harder than everybody else."
Of all her competitive memories thus far, Taylor Jacob likes to reflect on the moment she broke the National Finals Rodeo Arena Record at her first NFR during the 6th round. The memory she'd like to forget? The moment she was bucked off in the grand entry at the Youth Finals Rodeo. While she was only 9, her embarassment cost her a run and the saddle. Taylor took the opportunity to learn from this mistake, hold on tight, and not clown around during her future grand entries.
