Heartland top model decides to stay close to home and family

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - She's hit the runways all over the world, and graced the pages of top magazines and catalogues you might have right on your living room coffee table.

"I've been to Paris, London, Milan, even Australia,"  says Ali Turner, "Those places are great to visit for awhile, but I like being home too."

Turner says that's the biggest drawback about her modeling career.  The best part?  "The money,"  Turner admits with a laugh," It allows me to take care of my horses.  I love them more than anything."

At 15, Turner signed on with the Ford Modeling Agency in Chicago.  She then flew off to Europe and did a shoot for Italian Elle magazine.  Four years later, she decided not to re-sign with Ford, opting for a smaller agency in St. Louis.

"That way I won't have to be away from home as much,"  explains Turner.

For the future, Turner wants to become a professional horse barrel racer, but in the meantime she's content modeling.
