 Amberley Snyder Biography

Amberley Snyder was born in January of 1991 in southern California. She and her five siblings lived there during her dad’s Major League Baseball career with the Los Angeles Dodgers. At the age of three, Sydney began riding lessons and developed an unyielding passion for horses. After her dad’s retirement from baseball, the family moved to Utah. She was seven years old and would only comply if she was promised a barrel racing horse when she got there, she got her wish, and that was the beginning of Snyder’s rodeo career.

Growing up, Snyder’s family environment was very competitive. Her siblings participated in everything from sports to gymnastics, but she found her niche in rodeo. Before long, she was competing in barrel racing, pole bending, breakaway roping, and goat tying. In 2009, she qualified for the National High School Finals in the pole bending and won the National Little Britches Rodeo Association All-Around Cowgirl World Championship. Snyder was very active in FFA during her adolescent years, and in 2010 was elected the Utah FFA State President. The leadership and communication skills she gained in the organization have been invaluable to her and thus the organization is very dear to her.

On January 10th, 2010 Snyder was on her way to the Denver Stock Show and Rodeo. As she was passing through Sinclair, WY she took a look down at her map. After only seconds she looked up and realized she had faded into the other lane, headed towards a metal beam. In an effort to get back in her lane, Snyder overcorrected. Her truck slid off the road and rolled and she was ejected from the vehicle. She was slammed into a fence post that broke her back and immediately she lost feeling in her legs.

After five hours of emergency surgery the doctor’s prognosis was she would never regain use or feeling below her waist. He told her if she had worn her seatbelt, she would still have use of her legs. The one mistake she made that day changed her life forever, but it has not defeated her competitive spirit. The top priority for Snyder was not even to walk, but to ride her horses again. Remarkably after only 4 months after the accident, she was back on her horse.

In May of 2015, Snyder graduated college with a Bachelor’s degree in Agriculture Education. In 2018, she earned her Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Utah State University.

After the accident, Snyder realized she had a unique opportunity to reach out and inspire people with her unconventional situation. Her first step to that was her “Wheel Chair Wednesday’s” video segments on social media. These ranged from how she gets on her horse to how she fills her truck up with fuel. Her short videos have become a popular fan favorite on social media resulting in nearly 200K fans on Facebook.

Snyder now is inspiring thousands across America by telling her inspirational story and competing in rodeos across the western United States. She has let the challenges she faces refine her, not define her.
