Bethany Iles did not grow up in a horse or rodeo family but came to love horses when she took lessons at 9 years old. She saw a trick rider shortly after sitting on a horse for the first time and knew that’s what she wanted to do!!! She and her twin and little sister would go on to perform an act together for the rest of their childhood. Bethany’s dream was to trick ride at a professional level. She achieved that dream by getting her PRCA card at age 19. Rider and Bethany joined forces 3 years ago and have gone on to work the Mountain State Circuit finals and the Prairie Circuit finals. The couple’s biggest accomplishment has been winning PRCA 2020 Dress Act of the Year.
