XD Sports Signs World Champion Barrel Racer Fallon Taylor
Kuna, ID. (February. 4, 2015) – XD Sports, an agency that is mostly known for representing Professional Bull Riders and 3 time World Champion Tie Down Roper Tuf Cooper, has signed World Champion Barrel Racer Fallon Taylor to their roster of athletes.
Taylor, from Whitesboro Texas, has been a fashion model in New York, an actress in Los Angeles, but it is training horses and barrel racing that is her true passion. Taylor’s career began at age 7, when in 1990, she was the youngest Professional Barrel Racer to belong to the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association. She first qualified for the NFR in 1995 at the tender age of 13 (making her one the youngest qualifiers ever). It was then that she moved up to second place in the world among peers that were twice her age. Fallon went on to qualify for 3 more National Finals qualifications each year after. At 14, Fallon won the largest rodeo in the world, Rodeo Houston, and a check for over $15,000. After the 1998 season, Taylor elected to take a break from barrel racing to pursue her modeling and acting career. In 2012, Taylor narrowly missed qualifying for the Wrangler NFR by finishing 16th in the World. She used that as motivation, and along with her 8-year-old AQHA mare Flos Heiress “Babyflo”, qualified for her 5th trip to the bright lights in Vegas in 2013. A disappointing NFR in 2013 lit another fire in Taylor and her and Babyflo stormed back in 2014 to capture their first World Title.
XD Sports is an agency that represents some of the toughest athletes in the world. The agency was founded in 2001 with a focus on representing Professional Bull Riders who compete in the PBR Built Ford Tough Series. XD Sports showed their commitment to western sports athletes in 2012 by adding World Champion Tie Down Roper Tuf Cooper and again in 2015 by adding World Champion Barrel Racer Fallon Taylor.
