ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:
My name is Elaine Hagen. I have been married to Layne Hagen for 16 years. Rodeo has been a part of our lives.
I was a District Director for South Dakota NBHA #4 for five years. My husband and I along with another individual formed the Independent Barrel Racers Association (IBRA) in 2001. The past two years, we have co-sanctioned our IBRA shows with the UBRA.
I am a member of the United Methodist Church in Webster, South Dakota and am on my second round of being Treasurer.
I enjoy the sport of barrel racing and bringing quality barrel races to our area. My husband has been a calf roper, steer wrestler and team roper in his younger days and has since entered the world of senior men’s breakaway.
I look forward to working with the UBRA.
