Hi There!

My name is Andrea Thorp, the creator of The Rodeo Mrs.

I am a 23 year old lover of all things western, whether it be rodeo, fashion or any other aspect of our lifestyle. I was raised riding horses and became a barrel racer when I was ten years old. I went on to rodeo for Iowa State University and intern at three different rodeos as well as at a stock contractor’s ranch.

I moved to Texas for a short time but am now proudly based out of my hometown in eastern Iowa, where I archive my thoughts, travels and inspirations. Though I am from the midwest, I travel year round and have the blessing of having friends in almost every state through the rodeo industry.

Be sure to check out my full back story in the “The Rodeo Mrs Story” post. I hope you will follow my western adventures, and I hope even more to make new friends who love this lifestyle as much as I do.
