CORRDINATOR/DMISTRATOR GROUP

Brandy Casey

The world of rodeo is evolving more so than ever and these competitors are getting way more opportunities at a much younger age!  These kids are extremely talented – but if their mental game isn’t on point they can be as talented as they come – and not be successful.   We are blessed to have a dear friend who… Read more “Brandy Casey”

She has… Read more “Sarah”

I have had the privilege to work one on one with Donene, along with taking her “Close the Gap” mental toughness workshop.

“The things Donene taught me are unlike anything I’ve ever been taught. For example I used to blank out at every important calf, she gave me the tools and processes to help think through my runs and keep myself focused. I can’t thank her enough for leading me to my greatest successes. She helped me win my state title and… Read more “Hadley Furnival”

“Our daughter Ella has been riding horses since she was 5 years old but didn’t start roping until 2017. By 2020 we realized that Ella wanted to take her roping to the next level. After attending a roping clinic in early in 2021 where we met Donene Taylor, we had the opportunity to purchase one of her books and realized… Read more “Eric and Erica Lawton”

Stash Easton

“Donene conducted a one- hour ‘confidence building training’ session during our virtual national sales meeting. This should be a very difficult thing to do without being in the room to read the body language of the group. This didn’t phase Donene as she used creative ideas to engage with and involve the audience. Her delivery was fantastic, and the message… Read more “Stash Easton”
