Miranda Lambert's rodeo training

Miranda Lambert is in training to become a rodeo rider.

The singer/songwriter, who will wed fiance Blake Shelton in May (11), has revealed she's obsessed with barrel racing, a rodeo event in which a horse and rider attempt to complete an obstacle course in the fastest time.

She tells Cowboys & Indians magazine, "It's kind of my new hobby. I've already done one range rodeo where I did barrels, but I didn't do that great. But that's kind of what my new dream is.

"I used to sing at rodeos all the time, and I thought, 'Yeah, I want to be one of those girls who ride in with their hair flying behind them.'"
