As a member of Riata Ranch Cowboy Girls, Kansas appeared across the US and abroad trick riding and roping. Other credits include Disney’s “Hidalgo,” MTV, ESPN, CBS, and worldwide sporting events. Although raised in a rodeo arena, Kansas developed her unique style while touring with the acclaimed spectacle Cavalia, thrilling fans from California to Australia while Roman-riding a four-horse team and more.
