Miss Spokane Interstate Rodeo

Welcome From the 2017 Miss Spokane Interstate Rodeo

 

Born and raised in Spokane County I am proud to call this city my home and with extreme honor I have the pleasure of being your 2017 Miss Spokane Interstate Rodeo Queen. Throughout the years, I have come to the Spokane Interstate Fair and Rodeo as a guest, fair competitor, and sponsor representative on the flag team. It was my dream to represent the whole community and uphold the standards of being the 10th MSIR, with respect, professionalism, and kindness. As the 2017 PRCA Spokane Interstate Rodeo Queen, I will be attending more than 30 events, rodeos, parades and appearances throughout the year. To follow my travels, go to the Miss Spokane Interstate Rodeo Queen Facebook page for weekly updates and to keep up with all my exciting events and where I’m going next.

Ever since I was a little girl, from riding my grandparent’s horses on the trails of the Blue Mountains to learning to ride for myself on my own pony, I have always loved horses. Throughout the years, I have grown leaps and bounds with involvement in the Washington High School Equestrian Teams, American Quarter Horse Association, multiple local rodeo sponsor flag teams, a past royalty title as Miss Spangle Days, and countless hours of learning and bettering myself as a horse woman. One of the reasons I love rodeo queening is because it involves all that I already enjoy doing - riding horses, spending time with my family, traveling with friends and living the western lifestyle. Being a representative for the sport of rodeo has given me so much more than I could have ever imagined. It has helped me develop into a young woman who sets goals and accomplishes her dreams. I have learned to speak in front of large crowds, answer questions fluently and without hesitation, and present myself with grace and dignity. The professional and personal skills that I have developed will follow me into future careers and open doors for so many new friendships and relationships.

I invite all of you to come and watch our PRCA Rodeo September 8-9. Hundreds of top-notch competitors from all around the Northwest will compete for thousands of dollars in prize money. Friday, September 8’s performance is dedicated to Tough Enough to Wear Pink 8 allowing us the opportunity to show our support for breast cancer awareness. Saturday, September 9’s performance will honor the service men and women who protect our country and local law enforcement officers. Rodeo performances start at 7:00 p.m. under the lights of the Grandstand Arena at the Spokane Interstate Fair. Let’s kick off ten fun-filled days of the Spokane Interstate Fair and make this rodeo season one of the best!
