What an exciting summer it as been! “Cowboy Christmas has come and gone. I got to spend on of the richest weekends in rodeo at one of Illinois’ PRCA rodeos. the Shenandoah Pro Rodeo in Galena, Illinois It was an amazing experience. The trip up north was a little exciting due to the flooding but the weekend was amazing. The folks of the Three Hills Rodeo Company graciously allowed me to participate in the opening ceremonies of the rodeo. Caring the American flag is one of my favorite things that I get to do as Miss Rodeo Illinois.
Now a trip to Galena wouldn’t be complete without a trip to history downtown Galena and a visit to the Grant home. I always jump at the chance to learn more about our state and country’s history. Each night of the rodeo my horse Blossom and I wrapped up the evening with forth of July fire works. I can’t wait to go back year and sit on the hill and watch the rodeo.
