Ari-Anna Flynn on qualifying for RFD-TV’s The American semifinals in barrel racing and breakaway roping

Ari-Anna Flynn was busy over the weekend.

She competed in qualifiers for the American Rodeo in both breakaway roping and barrel racing in the same day and advanced to the semi-finals in both.

“It was pretty crazy,” she said. “We decided to enter the breakaway qualifier last minute.”

Her day began with a 5 a.m. wakeup call to compete at the three-header breakaway qualifier before getting to Cowtown Coliseum in Fort Worth at 3 p.m. to warmup for barrel racing.
