The MidWest Renegade Dirt Devils is a team designed for riders ages 7-18. In 2008 the children stopped watching and joined the fun. Boy have they done a great job. Their first performance was in early October of 2008, after only 2 practices. The coaches teach the kids how to combine the fundamentals of riding with music and choreography. The Dirt Devils have shown an incredible ability to pick up new maneuvers very quickly. The rider/horse partners have to be in the right position at the right time. On more than one occasion they have competed against, and out-placed adult teams in various competitions They have also challenged the other Renegade teams with their level of commitment to each other…not to mention being the cutest of the Renegade teams.
Your Midwest Renegade Dirt Devils!
Samantha and Gunnar
Samantha had cheater stirrups at 2 and really took the reins at 4. You may have seen her carry the Renegades banner in parades and helping at shows for the past few years as she watches her sister ride. With some focused determination and a second horse in the family, Samantha gets to ride as a member of the MidWest Renegades Dirt Devils.
Lainey and Cali
Lainey and Cali joined the Dirt Devils in 2020 and are excited to have a season in 2021. Lainey rescued Cali two years ago and they are learning so much together. They love drill team, rodeo, barrel racing, and just riding around for fun with friends. These two sassy mares love to challenge each other to keep growing as a better team.
Tarah and Breaker
Tarah has been riding since she was 5. At 9 years old she is the youngest 2019 Dirt Devil. She will be riding her new horse, Breaker. They have come a long way in a short time and are growing well together. Tarah and Breaker will continue their journey and build a bond while performing on the Dirt Devil’s team.
Hadley and Cowboy
Hadley started riding at the age of 7 and has been passionate about horses ever since. Hadley joined the Dirt Devils in 2020. She is looking forward to a new year riding and working with her horse, Cowboy. Cowboy is a retired ranch horse but still has the go and the drive to be part of the team! Although the flags are not one of his favorite parts, he has enough trust in Hadley to push through his fear. Hadley first became interested in the Midwest Renegades when she saw them perform at the McHenry County Fair. She is very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing team.
