From the Kentucky Reining Cup
Twenty-two-year-old student athlete and senior captain of the Texas A&M University women's equestrian team Laura Sumrall clinched the 2015 world championship freestyle title at the Kentucky Reining Cup with her “Frozen”-inspired performance on Wimpys Top Model (Wimpys Little Step-Sailin Bueno by Topsail Cody).
Sumrall’s world championship performance to “Let it Go” gave the audience both in the Alltech Arena and online chills.
“This was the first time I had done this routine,” she said. “We came up with it pretty quickly after we got the invitation to compete at the Kentucky Reining Cup. 'Frozen' came together pretty quickly. I’m at school at Texas A&M, so I wasn’t in the same place as my horse, so practicing was a little challenging. I set out a pattern and ran it on a couple of different horses. It was really fun to put together … definitely a group effort: my mom came up with the concept and did all the handiwork on my costume.”
