Howdy fair goers!
My name is Shania, your 2017 Klickitat County Fair and Rodeo Queen.I was born in Nebraska in 2000 and raised in Iowa then moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest when I was 4 years old. In April 2005 my family bought our first horse Jr Jay Bear is his name and I went on to wonderful things with him. I started 4H in 2012 here in Klickitat County with eh Young Riders 4H club in which I showed rabbits, cavy’s and my beloved palomino Junior. In 2013 I became the West Klickitat County Posse and Saddle Club representative and make it to state fair in performance and gaming with Junior.It wasa huge year for us.In 2014 I became the Broken Spur Junior Rodeo Queen, and in 2015 I was the Ketchum Kalf Rodeo Queen in which I retired Junior, who today is 28 years old, to my new horse Tucker.As your 2017 Queen we have already had a busy year with many coronations, rodeos, and parades. Along with all this I actively participate in the WHSET in White Salmon.
Please come visit me at the fair August 24th-27th, you may catch me in the horse show arena, doing a run out at the rodeo, walking through the stands handing out all important autograph sheets, wondering round the livestock barn or chatting the 4H and FFA participants, introducing our Queen contestants, serving at the famous kick off BBQ or just hanging out with my horses.I will be around to answer any questions you may have.There will be lots of activities goings on and many projects to look at.Don’t forget the Rodeo! One of the most important and entertaining attractions at our fair.
