Rodeo Royalty: Lovely, Hardworking Ambassadors

04 July 2016  
Bailey Anderson and Brooke Suter represented the Prescott Frontier Days World's Oldest Rodeo® in 2016.

Rodeo Royalty graces the Arena.

If cowboys represent the grit and brawn of the sport, the Rodeo Royalty balances with grace and charm in the arena. 

But, don't stop there. Those that make up the Royal Court are hard-working and excel in horsemanship. They participate in every local rodeo event, plus many others across Arizona. They ride in parades. They round up the calves and steers during the performances. They attend community events, such as the Chamber of Commerce meetings. All that while attending school, keeping up their grades and participating in additional extra-curricular activities. 

They've been called the 'Ambassadors of the Sport' and that they truly are. 

This year, Bailey Anderson served as the Prescott Frontier Days Rodeo Queen. Brooke Suter was the Prescott Frontier Days Jr. Court. Most years they also have a Sr. Court representative, also. 

On Monday, (thats today!) Anderson and Suter's duties will be retired and a new Court will be named. Giana DeMaria and Elizabeth Siegfried are contestants for Queen. Desiree Johnson is the Sr. Court contestant, and Emma Siegfried is the only Jr. Court contestant. The coronation ceremony takes place today at 11:30.
