Afton cowgirls get 'Tough'
Kati and Kasey Stewart, of Afton, have been riding horses since shortly after they could walk.
"We got a little pony when we were 5 years old," Kati said. "Our parents have always had horses."
Now Kati, 21, and Kasey, 19, have given up their pony for rodeo horses - and are ready to hit the big stage.
Kati and Kasey Stewart will be competing in the World's Toughest Rodeo Feb. 3-4 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul in the barrel racing event.
