A young woman from Innisfail is turning heads in the world of rodeo and on the soccer pitch.

Sydney Daines has a long family history in the rodeo, and was drawn to barrel racing in particular because of the speed. The event requires control, an attention to detail and close cooperation between horse and rider.

On top of the training she does to be the very best she can  in the grandstand, she also plays soccer for the University of Alberta Pandas. It's another demanding pastime, but Sydney has found a way to balance it all, and with great success.
