There are some individuals who stand out in a crowd leaving an unforgettable impression on those they meet. These people are few and far between- Braxten Nielsen is one of them. He is a natural-born athlete, an ambitious go-getter, and a successful bareback rider who always has a positive mindset. His motto “We were Born to Succeed” has been a quote that he has lived by and believes in.
