Voting starts for Eagle River trick riderSubmitted: 01/16/2017
EAGLE RIVER - An Eagle River girl with some special skills hopes you'll go online to support her.

The saddle for her horse, Rex, weighs almost as much as Jessica Kukanich herself.


But horses don't intimidate her.

In fact, Kukanich does more than just ride for fun--she competes in trick riding.

Although she's generally reserved, Jessica needs your attention now.

She hopes people vote her into a fan favorite showcase at this years' Midwest Horse Fair.

Voting starts today, and runs through January 25th.

If she gets there, she'll be competing against older riders, like usual.

The star search started with riders from 22 different states.

If you would like to vote for Jessica, go to the Midwest Horse Fair website.

Just follow the link below.
