It’s Your Colusa County: Kenzie Wilson

Living in Stonyford, Kenzie Wilson, 14, loves her small town and her rodeo lifestyle.

“I love Stonyford because its a small town with a lot of things to do,” said Wilson.

A freshman at Maxwell High School, Wilson is a member of the California High School Rodeo Association and several barrel racing associations.

“I have been riding horses my entire life and would ride in Maxwell Rodeo every year,” said Wilson. “As I got older, I realized I wanted to rodeo more than once a year. Thankfully, my uncle Kenny was able to convince my parents to let me branch out and start doing rodeos all the time.”

Wilson vividly recalls winning her first rodeo buckle.

“I remember winning my first Rodeo buckle in Maxwell when my brother chickened out for the cowhide race and I took his place,” said Wilson.

While Wilson spends a lot time traveling and competing at rodeos across the nation, she is just like any other teenager and finds time to hang out with her friends and family.

Her favorite past times are volleyball and FFA.

For her favorite county event, Wilson said, “It’s a toss up between the Maxwell Rodeo, Stonyford Rodeo or the Colusa County Fair. I enjoy them all.”■
