Rylee DeMarta also raises and shows Berkshire swine.

2024 is already shaping up to be an exciting year for a young horsewoman and rodeo contestant, 14 year old Ukiah High freshman, Rylee DeMarta. She is Rainbow’s representative for 2024 in CHSRA District 2 Rodeo, and she will be sharing some of her experiences throughout the year as she and her horses, Nic and Buzz, compete on the local circuits in Barrels, Poles and Cutting. Rylee is also very involved in FFA and 4H, and enjoys raising and showing Berkshire hogs, goats and sheep. Rylee will not only be sharing her Rodeo experiences, but also her horse care routine. She works with Purina reps to ensure that each horse has a feeding program tailored just for that horse.

Rainbow has been a proud sponsor of the California High School Rodeo Association for many years. This year we are excited to feature local athlete Rylee Demarta. In return for our support, she has agreed to let us follow her on a quest for a championship season. This cowgirl will keep us informed on current trends in the rodeo world as well as sharing her insight behind the scenes of her life in the arena. We hope you saddle up and join us on this adventure. If you have any questions along the way for this young lady, submit them to On the Right Lead and we will post them in our monthly newsletters.
