Young further explained, Marty is always offering tips to help our youth improve and cheering them on when they get a score on one of his great bucking horses. “I am very humbled and honored to be selected. I was surprised when Tim (Maher) called me up front at the contestant’s meeting to receive the plaque. Rodeo is something I love and encouraging the youth strengthens our sport,” stated Barnes.
