Campbell Zink
President

Hello! My name is Campbell Zink and I’m serving as this year’s RMRHA Youth President! I’m 18 years old and live in Johnstown, Colorado.

I’ve been riding with my trainer Gabe Garrison for three years now. He has taught me that reining, or riding in general, isn’t just about showing or winning; but being thankful for the moments you have with your horse because not everyone gets the same opportunities. This has only added to the love I have for this industry. I recently graduated from Roosevelt High School, where I was the FFA President, so being able to serve as president for another amazing organization means a lot to me. I love to set examples and help people in every way I can. This year is also my last year as a youth member, so having the chance to be part of this leadership team for the first and last time is something I’m extremely grateful for!

Hannah Schuck
Vice President

Hello, my name is Hannah Schuck, and I will be serving as your 2022 RMRHA Youth Vice President. I am 17 years old, and I live in Colorado on a small family farm. I ride at Warren Performance Horses. My trainer, Mr. Devin Warren, has helped me develop my character, as well as my riding standards. I started showing reining horses in 2019. I started really loving reining when I got to know my horse better. I am continually learning more about the horses and their own personalities, and each of them are learning about mine. In my spare time I help maintain the farm and enjoy time with my siblings. Previously, I also participated in 4H horse projects. This will be my first year holding a leadership position in the RMRHA Youth. I am excited to encourage the youth riders to grow, and I look forward to achieving new goals.

“The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9

Grace Racine
Treasurer

Hello everyone, my name is Grace, I am 18 years old and live in Windsor, Colorado. I started riding and reining four years ago with Michelle Chapman and have loved it ever since. The community is wonderful and something you just don’t find anywhere else. Two years ago, I bought my first horse and have really enjoyed bonding with her and learning from her. This is my last year in the youth class, and I can’t wait to see what other adventures lie ahead of me in the world of reining. I hope everyone has a great time at Summer Slide.
