Miss Rodeo South Dakota 2009

The month of April was a spectacular month as Miss Rodeo South Dakota. I started off the month in my college town of Brookings, SD. I was honored to judge the Jackrabbit Stampede Ambassador Contest. There were five lovely contestants and I truly enjoyed getting to know each one during the pageant.

Congratulations to Becca Stevens, who will represent South Dakota State University as the new Jackrabbit Stampede Ambassador, you will do an amazing job! A special thank you to Tammi Cole-Rebelein, the Jackrabbit Stampede Ambassador Coordinator, for allowing me to be part of the pageant. I had an amazing time! After the pageant it was time to rodeo! I got to participate in four college rodeo performances and the Sutton’s Saddle Bronc Match. Once again the Sutton Rodeo Company did an exceptional job producing the rodeo and I feel very lucky to be involved with their rodeos throughout my reign. Another big thank you goes to my friend and past equestrian teammate Anna Taylor, for allowing me to stay at her house during the week, thank you!

After three back-to-back blizzards in the Black Hills, I was ecstatic to make my next trip to the Clark County Fair & Rodeo in Logandale, NV, which is also host to the Miss Rodeo Nevada Pageant. My first day in Nevada started in sunny Las Vegas where Miss Rodeo Wyoming, Miss Rodeo Montana, Miss Rodeo Nevada, Miss Teen Rodeo Nevada and I toured many different places.

We started at Child Haven, where we had the opportunity to meet with children that are waiting to be placed into foster homes. Our next stop was Opportunity Village, where we toured the facilities and met with the various workers. Our day ended at Nellis Air Force Base where the visiting queens and I were given the VIP tour of the Air Force base. We toured the weapons training museum, the jet hangers, the helicopters, and we even walked out onto the runways! A special thank you to Christopher Smith at Nellis Air Force Base who educated us about the Air Force. To all of our military men and women, I applaud them for their service to our country.

The next day we started the morning at the Mesquite Rotary Meeting, where each state queen spoke about her favorite experience so far as a rodeo queen. We then ventured to Mesquite’s Highland Manor Nursing Home to visit with the residents. I truly enjoyed meeting with all of the residents and learning about their pasts. We then traveled to the first performance of the Clark County Rodeo. Each night we were introduced during the grand entry. A very special thank you to Flint Hempstead for allowing me to borrow one of his pickup horses for each grand entry.

Friday morning, we headed back to Las Vegas for the orientation portion of the Miss Rodeo Nevada Pageant. It was so wonderful to meet all of the contestants; they each did an outstanding job competing for the title. After orientation, we had a fabulous lunch in the healing gardens of St. Rose Dominican Hospital. We then toured the hospital and met with several patients.
