2018 Royal Court

1 of 4
Beginning in January, St. Paul Rodeo's Royal Court members become formal representatives of the St. Paul Rodeo Association and, indirectly, the St. Paul community-at-large in preparation for and during the St. Paul Rodeo which is held over the Fourth of July holiday.

Our Royal Court was selected in October, 2017 from a talented field of active young horsewomen who demonstrated engaging speaking and other interpersonal skills combined with an outstanding level of competence in horse handling abilities. These young women represent the St. Paul Rodeo to its patrons, attendees, and to the public at large sharing information about the Rodeo community, its events, cowboys, and volunteers. They are enthusiastic as they spread goodwill while meeting, greeting and welcoming visitors to the 2018 St. Paul Rodeo community.
