    Why I Want To Be Miss Teen Rodeo Montana: I want to become Miss Teen Rodeo Montana because it would be such an honor to represent rodeo at a state and professional level. I am truly a rodeo girl. I’ve been out there at high school rodeos in the mud, rain and bitter cold weather.  I’ve been out there when it is 100 degrees trying to push my horse just a little faster than the last time or trying to turn my steer just a little quicker.  I have been around rodeo my whole life and when I say whole life I mean it.  My mom and dad were team ropers and my dad was a calf roper.  My grandpa was a pro bronc rider, roper, and a horse breaker.  He even rode in the Wolf Point Stampede.  Rodeo has been in my family for generations and I think because of that I am blessed with the knowledge and ability to really show people how wonderful America’s original sport is.  I think with that attitude and my experiences that I would be a great representative for rodeo nationwide.
