Loretta Hagedorn knew when her daughter was very young that she was destined for rodeo greatness.
At 4 years old, Jordan participated in the pleasure class horse riding event at the Cuming County Fair. After it was over, she had a grin on her face.
"She said, "I think I won because I beat everyone," Loretta said of her daughter.
And while the event wasn't based on speed, little Jordan was ready for a faster-paced event even at just 4 years old.
Fourteen years later, Jordan, a 2013 West Point Central Catholic graduate, is now a top competitor at the Nebraska State High School Rodeo Finals in Hastings.
She's also a rare female competitor in that she is competes in all five women's events: Cutting, barrel racing, pole bending, goat tying and breakaway roping.
"It's kind of a handful, but it's all worth it," said Jordan, as she sat on a bucket in a horse barn Friday at the Adams County Fairgrounds.
