Meet LeslieJack and Leslie, World's Toughest Cowboy 2010
Leslie and Jack Rod Wilson win the 2009 NBHA Colonial Nationals 2D Second Go

Leslie has been involved with horses for over 25 years with experience in a wide variety of disciplines. She rode jumpers and dressage through her teenage years into her twenties living in the heart of "english seat" country in Massachusetts. Along the way she has worked at several top hunter and jumper barns as well as being the caretaker for the Irish Mist Polo Team's ponies for two years. A move to New Hampshire in 1993 introduced her to the world of Belgian Draft Pulling horses in which she successfully helped campaign several teams to many wins over the next 9 years. In 1998 she started entering gymkhanas and in 2000 she decided to focus exclusively on barrels, realizing that she had found her calling. She saw an ad on the internet for a horse in KY with a "big motor" and decided she would check him out while she was there dropping off some Belgians. Well the horse was "Bo" and he was a bargain basement deal that she just knew was the kind of horse who could win the world. She brought him home, worked him over the winter and the rest is history. She won her first NBHA run she ever went to the first time she ran him and knew that training barrel horses was what she wanted to do. Knowing the enormous demands we put on our equine athletes' bodies, she became a certified Equine Sports Massage Therapist to maximize her own horses' performance as well as the performance of others.
