Miss Rodeo America Pageant
Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years. This past year as Miss Rodeo California has been the best year of my life. Not only did I get to represent a sport that has taught me so much, and that I value, but I now have memories I will cherish forever.
The week at Miss Rodeo America was a blast. I had such a great time. It was so wonderful to have 28 beautiful ladies come together that all share one passion: RODEO! Even though there was little sleep, we shared many laughs throughout the week. I was overwhelmed by the amount of support that showed up in Vegas to watch me compete for Miss Rodeo America 2011. It brought tears to my eyes every time I saw my group!!!!!!!!! I am so thankful for the friendships that I have made this year. There were new friendships formed and some were made stronger. The coronation was on Saturday, Dec 4th. It was such an honor to be chosen as one of the top five. I was up there with two great friends, Michelle, Miss Rodeo Nebraska, and McKenzie, Miss Rodeo South Dakota. I was first runner-up and won the horsemanship category!!!!! I am very happy for McKenzie and she will be a great Miss Rodeo America.
