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!
