Rodeo Queens Named

Princess 3rd Attendant Paige Eliason, Princess 1st Attendant Sunni Barnes, Princess 2nd Attendant Cassidy Schrenk, and Princess Hadlee Douglas

Young rodeo queen hopefuls gathered at the Oneida County Fairgrounds Saturday, June 11 as they competed in the county’s Rodeo Queen Contest.  Contestants from ages three to eighteen participated in several events throughout the day, cheered on by their families and friends.

The morning began with the youngest groups- the Mini Miss Cowgirls (ages 5 and under) and Jr. Miss Cowgirls (ages 6 to 7).  Inside the arena they each performed a pattern particular to their age group as well as a simple interview with the judges.  At the conclusion of the horsemanship patterns and interview, each of the contestants were awarded with a feed bucket of goodies, for themselves and their horses.

Following the younger division award ceremony, the Princess (ages 8 to 11), Jr. Queen (ages 12-14) and Sr. Queen (ages 15-18) contestants began their own competitions.  The contestants were individually judged on three basic areas of appearance, interview, and horsemanship.  They all participated in modeling, interviewing, testing and a horsemanship pattern, with each division becoming progressively harder.  The Jr. Queen division had an additional flag horsemanship pattern to perform.
