Twelve-year-old Payton Routier began her trick riding career when she was 5 years old, after being inspired by watching the Rodeo Girls at the Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo in Minot, North Dakota when she was 4. A year later, she was performing at rodeos on her own, and since then she has had the privilege to perform all over the country, sometimes with the same girls who lit the fire inside of her when she saw them in Minot. Payton is a 6th grader at Harding County School in Buffalo, SD. When she is not trick riding, she also enjoys barrel racing and roping, and playing basketball and volleyball. Her dream is to someday trick ride at the National Finals Rodeo.
In August, 2019, Payton earned her PRCA Specialty Act permit. Contact us to book her for your next rodeo or event!
