Lindsey Wackel is on of the 2023 EMDukat Photography Ambassadors and I'm pretty stoked about it! Lindsey and her herd are always fun to watch in the arena. She's a nationally qualified High School rodeo contestant. Keep an eye out for her!
When ask to describe herself, she said, "I want to have horses/animals in my career. I have given up school sports, friends, family to continue riding my horses. I am very passionate about treating horses with respect and trying your hardest to keep them sound/take care of any soreness or lameness. I believe a horse that feels good works good."

How would you describe yourself?
I would say my personality is outgoing.
Who makes up your critter team?
-Ms. First Exclusive (Harley) 7 y/o mare. Harley was bought from Kelly Holdaway and Andy Willet fresh out of her futurity year. I was looking for a step up horse and originally Harley wasn't for sale. We wanted to look at a consignment horse but decided it wasn't a good fit so we decided to go look at Harley. We ended up taking her home that day. I started her on the poles and she made it very easy for me and took to the poles well. Now she is my main mount as a barrel/pole horse.
-Jazzy Lady Cat (Petrie) 9 y/o mare. Petrie was purchased in early June of summer 22'. She was very broke but was a very nervous horse when it came to races. After figuring out some health issues with her, she is now building confidence in the barrel racing pen and hopefully a 2024 pole prospect.
-KPS Birgeeta (Britta) 7 y/o mare- Britta was bought in october-ish from Katie Mace. There is not much to say about her as she is very calm. I have yet to find all the gears on her but we are most definitely starting to figure each other! I see a bright future for me and Britta.
