Single...Had wanted to buy a horse FM Radio at the Barrel Futurities of America in 2006 but that horse went for $80,000 but found Doda Flit in the same sale, so Carley decided to nickname him Radio. Carley's father, Jim, trained the gelding and she competed in the futurities against FM Radio ridden and trained by Kassie Mowry...Parents, Jim (a team roper) and mom, Marsha and has three older sisters who all ran barrels; older sister Kaily won the WPRA Permit only race in 2015...Hopes to eventually get a Masters in Healthcare Administration and work as an administrator in a hospital or nursing home...Sponsored by Platinum Performance, CSI saddle pads, Cinch, Horse Hydrator, Flavio Rubiero Leather, Polyglycan.
