Royals ready for high school rodeo

Its hard to believe how fast time flies. As May is creeping up on us, I’m sad to say I have only two months left to enjoy my reign. The month of April has been a fun one.

Its hard to believe how fast time flies. As May is creeping up on us, I’m sad to say I have only two months left to enjoy my reign. The month of April has been a fun one. 

The Bowl For Kids Sake was a great event put on by the Big Brothers Big Sister club and they raised tons of money at this great event. 

The contestants, Stampede Princess Nicole Roberts, and I all attended and we got to greet people at the door and we even got a chance to bowl. I found out fast that bowling is not my thing and I sadly lost the game due to my countless “gutter balls.” 

A photo shoot at Eagleview Equestrian Centre took place. 

The contestants Nicole and I all had lots of fun getting our group shots, and individuals done. We went in the barn, on the stairs, and outside with Nicole’s horses. 

We got very beautiful pictures. 

The Indoor Rodeo is always one of my favourite rodeos to attend. 

We were all on hand helping out by selling programs, raffle tickets and taking tickets at the door.

Nicole and I also got to do grand entry on Sunday, alongside Miss Rodeo Canada, Kezia Morrison, and Miss Rodeo Canada Princess, Kirsten Braumandl. 

The museum was also packed on Sunday with all the familes and the inductees for the Cowboy Hall of Fame. 

It’s always great to see our local cowboys leave the arena on Sunday with a smile as they hold their plaques after being announced they made the Cowboy Hall of Fame. 

Next for us was the Horsin’ Around in the Cariboo, held at Eagleview Equestrian Centre April 29 to May 1. We will be on hand at the Williams Lake Highschool Rodeo in the Stampede Grounds May 7, and 8. I hope to see you all there!
