Ilyssa Riley Shares Her Journey and Preparation to First NFR
Ilyssa Riley is eagerly preparing for her first National Finals Rodeo appearance after cinching the No. 10 position in the WPRA World Standings.
After securing her spot through a successful season, the Texas cowgirl is taking a thoughtful approach to getting not only herself, but her horses ready for their initial run in the Thomas and Mack.
Alongside Riley will be fellow NFR rookie cowgirls Taycie Matthews, Summer Kosel and Paige Jones competing for the first time under the lights of Las Vegas.
As December draws nearer, Riley is determined to make the most of her opportunity and enjoy each moment as she makes her debut.
