NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – One North Texan is excelling at two totally different passions.

Meredith Ray isn’t afraid to chase down both of her dreams. She drives a truck and saddles horses.

The competitive barrel racer has no fear when it comes to getting dirty in the arena or driving high fashion from Fort Worth.

When it comes to horses, Ray says, “I have always loved the creatures.” But she also loves purses. “If you are a girl you really only need one or two things to tie everything together — purses are ‘that’ one thing.”
