For one of the shorter trips of the year, I headed over to Madras for the Jefferson County Fair and Rodeo Court Coronation. Jessie, 2013 Deschutes County Fair and Rodeo Queen, handed her crown as the 2012 Jefferson County Fair and Rodeo Queen to the 2012 Princess, Lindsay, and the title of Princess was now on the hat of Maddie. Mackenzie Carr, 2011 Miss Rodeo Oregon and 2012 Miss Rodeo America, joined us for the evening as the emcee and eventually she bought a Dyrk Godby designed leather belt.
Along with the festivities, I was able to take part in the Mr. Jefferson County Fair and Rodeo competition as the judge of horsemanship. No worries! We only gave them stick horses to ride around on. For those who aren't sure of what this competition entails, it has nothing to do with actual judging. It's based on their performance and the crowd selects the winner by putting money in the hat of the cowboy they want to win. It was pretty entertaining! But it always reminds me how wonderful our friends can be.
I congratulate Lindsay, as a long time friend of mine, on attaining the title of Queen, as well as Princess Maddie. You two will have so much fun traveling together, and I will see everyone down the rodeo road!
2013 Miss NPRA
