Alaina Cartright is a 13-year-old honor roll student from Yates Center, Kansas, where she lives with her mom, brother, and grandma. She is the youngest and newest member of the Heartland Twisters Drill Team. She grew up dancing competitively before finding her passion for horses four years ago. She has experience in both English and Western riding. She fell in love with her horse, Sage, a 9-year-old Gypsy Vanner, two years ago as her lesson horse. Sage was used as an occasional trail horse before becoming a lesson horse and brood mare. Alaina’s family also owns Sage’s only baby, Lottie, and a young Gypsy Vanner gelding, Chet. Alaina hopes to train all of them to participate in fun shows, run barrels, and drill team. Alaina says she "wants to continue showing people that Gypsy Vanner Horses are more versatile than they think by training my three to show and rodeo. I also want to be a horse trainer and plan to go to college for equine studies and business."
