Meet Kate Szukelewicz: UBRA KS Director

Kate is your typical freelance artist, always involved in creating something using assorted media to include paint, pastels, watercolor, jewels/stones, and of course, the computer. She is the owner of Wild-West Webs Design and Graphics and a partner in Big Dream Racing, an authorized Agent of Hidez Equine Compression Wear.

Kate has always had a heart for horses. From the first pony ride in Kentucky at the young age of 4, she’s ridden horses.  In 2009, she decided to scratch a new item off of the “bucket list”. She began barrel racing. Several years and horses later, Kate continues to barrel race and is a member of UBRA, BBR, NBHA, United Rodeo Association, and a past permit holder to  WPRA . She is best known for her gray mare she calls “Pye”.  Pye and Kate were the High-Money Earner team in 2014, awarded by Olson Ranch and were the UBRA Combined Region 1D Champions for 2015.

In addition to being a competitor, she is also the co-founder of 2C2B Productions LLC, a business that produces Open 4-D barrel races in the KC area and produces/promotes events for other associations, clubs, benefits and fundraisers. You won’t find a happier person than one that gets to work in and with the Industry and people that they admire and love! She looks forward to being involved with the UBRA in 2016 and helping promote the association and helping it’s members.
