Folks - let me tell you what! I was thrilled when I got to meet actor/director Luke Perry at the 2011 WNFR. However, my number one thrill was meeting famous trick rider Nancy Shepherd. Wow is she one hell of a lady! Hearing her talk about performing for Giorgio Armani and to actually shake her hand and have her compliment ME was one of the greatest moments of my life. Donnalyn Quintana, who founded the ORIGINAL Western Wishes in 1994, is the niece of this grand woman of rodeo. When we were getting ready to leave, Ms Shepherd gave me hug and told me now I am her niece too! I was shaking when I left - and had tears in my eyes.
