Western Reiner (St. Mary’s School)
Riding "Please Nicker"
Samantha Bayer was encouraged by her mother, an avid equestrian, to begin riding at two years old. "Sammy" competes in seven different riding events; showmanship, horsemanship, trail, western riding, reining, and working cow horse. Among her numerous awards, in 2008 she won the American Quarter Horse Y A in Reining and in 2010 World Champion in Working Cow Horse. Her horsemanship and academic achievements at St. Mary’s School qualified her for a full athletic scholarship to compete next year on the equestrian team of Texas Christian University.
