Bakersfield Stampede Days Rodeo
On May 3rd and 4th I attended the Cops & Cowboys Stampede Days Rodeo in Bakersfield. Being from San Diego, I was not accustomed to the heat! I now understand what people mean when they say San Diego has perfect weather. Even with the heat of summer, I was so happy to be at the hometown rodeo of Miss Rodeo California, Dakota Skellenger. I brought a mare named Penny with me to the rodeo. I think she has seen more rodeos than I have. Thank you Ed and Taya for allowing me to use her. She was a perfect angel.
Stampede Days Rodeo queens pageant runs concurrent with the rodeo. I watched the horsemanship portion of the pageant on Saturday, May 4th. That evening they crowned a new Miss Stampede Days Rodeo 2013 court which is Catherine Gulizia-Queen, Katy Priddy-Jr. Queen, Macy Knight-Princess, and Breanna Ball- Tiny Princess. Congratulations girls! I look forward to seeing you all on the rodeo trail!
