Kelsey Lutjen and KN Fabs Gift Of Fame win the first performance of RFD-TV’s The American Semifinals in Fort Worth, Texas.
Victoria Williams and Three Jets Olena are bound for the semifinals of RFD-TV's The American Rodeo after a momentous win at the Memphis, Tennessee, qualifier December 3, 2016. BHN caught up with Victoria about how she overcame adversity with her horse to log her second trip to the semifinals.
Before the three performances of The American Rodeo semifinals begin Feb. 15, a field of more than 450 was whittled down to 90 contestants after slack rounds Feb. 14. The top 30 in barrel racing and 20 in team roping and steer wrestling are one step closer to RFD-TV’s The American Rodeo on Feb. 19 presented by Polaris RANGER and a chance to earn a $1 million bonus.
KN Fabs Gift Of Fame is one of the toughest horses in the game, and she capped off 2016 by winning two qualifiers for RFD-TV's The American Rodeo with two different riders—her trainer Kelsey Lutjen in October, and most recently, Kelsey's mother Lisa Lutjen in Las Vegas in December. BHN visited with Lisa about her qualifying win and why "J-Lo" is such a remarkable mare.
