Cowgirl Up

Rodeo Girls, a new reality television show on A&E that premiered in early December, follows five female barrel racers into the competitive world of the pro-rodeo circuit. But of course it’s so much more than that. There is plenty of drama captured while the girls aren’t on horseback.
    One of the women of Rodeo Girls is Jessica Holmberg of Weatherford. Holmberg has been training horses since she was a kid and barrel racing since the age of 9. Not only was she a National High School Rodeo qualifier, she has also ranked in the Top 15 Open and Youth Barrel Racing standings and broke the record at the Trails End arena in Olympia, Wash.
    Anthony Lucia, a professional trick roper from Weatherford, is also a part of the show, and it was hinted early in the series that he might have a romantic interest in Holmberg.
To watch an episode of Rodeo Girls, tune in to A&E on Thursdays at 10 p.m.
