The St. Paul Rodeo Royal Court was selected earlier this month from a group of horsewomen who demonstrated their skills, knowledge and expertise in horsemanship, current events, and other topics. They will represent the rodeo at various appearances and functions throughout the year, including the Rose Parade and Starlight Parade, Ag Fest, the Joseph and Pendleton rodeo parades, and various other events in the Willamette Valley. They are ambassadors of the St. Paul Rodeo, exhibiting goodwill and enthusiasm as they educate others about rodeo.
The 2018 St. Paul Rodeo is July 3-7. Tickets will be available in December. For more information, visit the website at www.StPaulRodeo.com or the Facebook page.
