A fifth generation San Benito County Native Avrie Hubbell is the Daughter of Jake Hubbell and Beth Zgragen. Avrie is currently attending California State University Fresno with the goal of becoming a High School Agricultural teacher.
Growing up on her family’s cattle ranch was a step into the life of horses for Avrie. At a young age she fell in love with horses and the sport of rodeo. Since she was four years old, she has been participating in San Benito County’s Saddle Horse Show and Rodeo from timed events to the Horse Show classes. Her favorite thing about the Saddle Horse Show was switching disciplines and be able to participate in both arena and track events. Throughout Junior High School and High School she was a member of the NBHA Association, California High School Rodeo Association and the Junior High Rodeo Association. When she wasn’t horseback she was busy raising livestock through 4-H and FFA for local county fairs. Her most memorable memory was winning the 2013 Junior Track All Around that was donated by her family in memory of Hazel Indart (Great Great Aunt).
In her free time Avrie enjoys spending time helping out on her family’s ranch, hanging out with her friends and taking care of her animals. Along with helping her little brother with his livestock. Some other hobbies she enjoys is going to the lake and wake surfing with friends and spending time outdoors.
