Meet your Instructors:
Hi, my name is Tessa Hertel and I am your other instructor. I am originally from Parker, SD. I am majoring in Special Education at Dakota Wesleyan in Mitchell, SD. I have grown up with and have ridden horses my whole life. I was involved in horse 4-H and Parker Saddle Club all throughout my life. I originally was a camper at RBC and this camp is where I was learned all about Goat Tying. I did 4-H rodeo (Barrels, Poles, & Goat Tying) when I was in high school and I am now currently a 4-H leader of my own horse 4-H club. Being able to be here as a camper then come back and be the Goat Tying/Breakaway instructor for my 5th year in a row is an honor and blessing. Along with my experience with horses, I am also a Christian and love teaching others about the Lord.
Hi campers! My name is Brianna Elm, I'm excited to be your instructor! I have been involved with camp for several years. I own a cattle farm in Central Nebraska, and I have been around horses and livestock my entire life. I am a graduate from Mitchell Technical Institute with a degree in Large Animal Science. In my free time I enjoy working with my rescue donkeys, my bottle calves, and volunteering for our local FFA and 4-H programs. I'm excited to spend time with our campers this year!
