December has been a busy time in the life of Miss Rodeo USA. I spent a few days in Las Vegas to visit with many of my great sponsors at Cowboy Christmas. Las Vegas in December wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Thomas and Mack to watch the NFR and a visit to the Tropicana to watch my friend and sash sister Taylor McNair as she was crowned 2019 Miss Rodeo America. It was great to visit with my sash sisters from all across the United States while I was in Vegas.
After arriving home, I was honored to be the guest speaker at the Newbern Saddle Club for their year end award ceremony. I have spent many nights at the saddle club over the years riding with family and friends when I was not at rodeos. It was great to see everyone and catch up.
I am excited to be home with my family for Christmas. These next few weeks will be filled with lots of pageant preparation for the Miss Rodeo USA 2019 pageant and IFR 49. This Friday I can be found in Memphis, Tennessee at the Liberty Bowl Rodeo. I am really excited to make one last appearance in my home state at an IPRA rodeo as Miss Rodeo USA.
Stay tuned to see what I am up to as my days as Miss Rodeo USA wind down. I hope each and every one of you have a very Merry Christmas, and remember to always ENJOY THE RIDE!
