Meet our featured special PEWC member, Margaret Schmidtke! Here is what she has to say about Pro Elite…..
“In 2017, I made up my mind to try to step out of the little local pool and see how my horses and I could stack up in the real world of barrel racing. We joined Pro Elite World Challenge and put on a TON of miles hauling to MN since there was only about 3 or 4 events per year in ND. My little grey mare, Misty, was still wet behind the ears and pretty wild eyed. She really came together with the road time and the seasoning, and we had the privilege of running against gals that were qualified for the American and the like. She earned us a regional champion title in 2017, and then was sidelined with a severe Hamstring tear in January 2018. She was in Rehab until the end of April and came back strong, landing just out of the top 10 in the 1D in Pro Elite for 2018, with a saddle to her name from her 2nd weekend back. She finished strong, and gave me the opportunity to finish my year safely and still competitive, despite being 6 and a half months pregnant for our last run at PEWC finals. She is now waiting on my return to the saddle following the arrival of our 2nd child, and we are very excited to bring our new peewee to meet our Pro Elite family when we return to competing this spring. I’m so thankful for the quality friends I have made through PEWC and the step up in competition to know how we rank with high level competition. Can’t wait to see you all in 2019, with Misty, a handful of young guns, and both my Peewees! I sure am missing the rides, the runs, and the friends at events!”
