Amberley has been riding since she was three and competing in rodeo since she was seven. She was successful in the rodeo arena all growing up and into high school. In 2009, Amberley was the Finals and World All Around Cowgirl for the National Little Britches Rodeo Association.
In 2010, Amberley was involved in a rollover car accident, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down. Only a year and half later, Amberley was back competing in barrel racing. She now has modifications on her saddle including a seat belt making it possible for her to be in the rodeo arena again. Amberley is currently on her college rodeo team at Utah State University competing in the barrel racing and breakaway roping.
Amberley was voted in as the Fan Exemption for RFDTV's The American and will be competing in AT&T’s Cowboy Stadium in March. She is the first paralyzed athlete to compete in the richest one day rodeo in America. Amberley also has a widespread social media following with over 80 thousand fans. Her most popular trends are ‘Wheelchair Wednesdays’ where Amberley shows a piece of her life each week in a wheelchair. It can be simple tasks such as opening a door to bigger accomplishments like lifting herself on her horse. Amberley hopes to inspire others while she continues in her journey of triumph over tragedy.
