MOUNT WASHINGTON — Alyson Mason is a true cowgirl.
She began riding horses at her family’s Mount Washington farm — Mason Performance Horses Inc. — when she was 18 months old. And by the time she entered kindergarten at Old Mill Elementary School, she was ready to compete in rodeos.
“The thing that I like most of the time is barrels,” she said, while sitting atop of her horse, Zippy.
Rodeoing is in her blood and she has won numerous trophies and awards for various regional and state competitions.
