I have been a part of the equestrian community in Minnesota for my entire life, and the opportunity to represent our great state as Miss Rodeo Minnesota 2021 is such an honor. I am so thankful to everyone that has already been a part of my journey that has led me to this point, and I can’t wait to meet more people along the way as the year goes on!”
