My names Zané van hengel, I am an 18 year old cowgirl from Central Queensland, Australia. I enjoy rodeoing, and working my horses, as well as changing everything up abit every now and then.

2019 was a bit of a hard year, losing two of my main horses at the end of the year. I now have 5 trophy buckles they won myself together in the 2019 season, to remember them both by.

The paint horse I broke in myself and trained myself & with this year being her second full year of competition she ended the “Great Western Hotel young guns rodeo series", 3rd overall, as well as taking out open 4D champion, and Junior 4D champion.

My other main horse I had during the 2019 season took out the junior 2D, 3D, and open 3D trophy buckle. I also received another invitation to visit America, and go to Perry, Georgia. I qualified to represent Australia this year, 2020 3 times in NBHA Youth Worlds & 2 times in NBHA open worlds.

 My 2020/2021 goals are to finish my junior season off by chasing a few more trophy buckles and saddle, on two horses I am training my self, one being my QH colt, and the other mare being a recycled racehorse!
