Meet Sierra Dawn Thomas – Survivor Contestant & Barrel Racer

After her big debut on the reality TV show, Survivor, we caught up with two-time contestant, Sierra Dawn Thomas. When she isn’t traveling to various third world countries and living under extreme conditions, Sierra has always loved riding horses. In fact, she was the National Champion Barrel Racer and All Around Cowgirl in high school rodeo as well as a National Champion in college rodeo. She turned professional when she was 18, hitting the rodeo circuit hard for nearly 10 straight years before getting the call to be on Survivor. 

For Sierra, her horses were her biggest therapy upon returning home from Survivor. Hear what she had to say about her experience as a Survivor contestant, and how her horses helped her bounce back into real life:
