Meet The Bandits!
Hello! I'm Marisa, I am a 24 year old cowgirl from North East Pennsylvania... That's right! I'm from the North! I am a 3 time State Rodeo Queen Title Holder, I've traveled to 26 states, I have 5 horses , 2 dogs, a wonderful boyfriend and a huge love for western fashion and western jewelry!
Not only do I have a huge love for the western fashion industry but I am also apart of the western industry. I've been actively involved in the rodeo industry since I was 13 years old. There is nothing in this world I love more than sending a hot headed, ready to go to work, powerhouse down the alley way.
The vision I have for The Bling Bandit is to help build confidence in the western industries located in the North Eastern States. I often hear girls in my states and surrounding states say " Oh I love that, but I could never wear that". Oh but honey! Yes you can! my plan is to show you! So I decided to build The Bling Bandit as an affordable, fashionable and family friendly shop that gives many western vibes and styles! So enjoy your time shopping and please let me know if I can help you build a fun western outfit !

Meet Bryn Tibbott!
Hi everyone! My name is Bryn Tibbott! I’m a barrel racer from Ebensburg, Pennsylvania. My horse and I “Wonders Light Streak” travel along the east coast rodeoing for the SEBRA and Bullride Mania Circuits! I began
my equestrian journey in the hunter jumpers as a child and eventually
transferred into barrel racing and I never looked back. My goal for the 2023 season is to make the SEBRA National Finals for the second time in Murfreesboro, Tennessee! In November of this year (2022) we made the finals! This was a huge goal accomplished that I would love to do again! I am a huge believer in "look good compete good", therefore fashion is a giant part of my routine as a competitor. That being said I am thrilled to be a part of The Bling Bandit team for the 2023 season!

Hi I’m Alyssa Collison. I lived in Montana through my freshman year in high school and then moved to the sunny state of Arizona. I am a full time college student and Central Arizona College studying equine management and training, as well as competing on the Central Arziona College rodeo team.
