Junior Princess
Alexa Ulrich

My name is Alexa Ulrich. I am honored to be representing NLBRA of MI as the 2014-2015 Princess. I have been involved with horses since the age of 2 and have been teaching my own horse barrels and other rodeo events for around 3 years now. I am always learning new things and love to help others learn too. My events right now are Barrels, Pole Bending, and Dally Ribbon Roping, I have done Trail Course and Goat tying in the past as well. I am also learning to rope and hope to add roping events soon.  I have a younger sister and brother that I help with their horses and events too. 

I hope to help others and be a good representative of Little Britches. Don't be afraid to approach me for questions or help. I am always happy to help. I like being able to do things for others, and hope to pass that attitude in others. Rodeo has been one big family for me, and I hope to make it that way for others too. I look forward to the year ahead and many more in rodeo!
