Meet Tynlee Williams, a talented young rider from Morrison Illinois. Tynlee now 13, began her riding career when she was very young. Tynlee is the middle daughter of Scott and Kara Williams. She has an older brother Gamin and a younger sister Briley. Tynlee’s equine partner is a horse called Denying your Assets, fondly known as “Vada”. Tynlee loves showing Vada in the Equitation, Hunter under saddle, and Showmanship. Hunter under saddle her is her favorite class to compete in. Her favorite AQHA event is the all-American quarter horse congress. At the 2021 congress Tynlee and Vada made top 15 in the 12-14 Hunter Under Saddle, which was an exciting achievement! Their next goal is to make the top 10 at the congress. This spring Vada is expecting her first foal and Tynlee and the rest of her family are SUPER excited about this new adventure! Tynlee is not only an excellent horse woman, but she is also involved in cheerleading, and is the 2022 ILQHYA treasurer.
