Spooner Rodeo Queen: Baylee Brown

Spooner Rodeo Queen 2019

 My name is Baylee Brown and I was born and raised in Shell Lake, Wisconsin. I have two loving parents, Patty Harmon and Mitch Brown, along with two brothers and two sisters. In the fall of 2022, I’ll be attending South Dakota State University to major in Animal Science and follow the Pre-Vet program. After I receive my Bachelor’s of Science, I plan to go on to Veterinary school and specialize in livestock. I enjoy spending time with family and friends and riding my horse. I’m highly passionate about horsemanship and have always loved working with and learning from horses. My five year old gelding and I were involved in the Washburn County 4-H Horse Project last year and also participated in the Washburn County Fair. I was amazed and highly grateful for the opportunity to be a part of 4-H, as the people I was surrounded by fully supported me and pushed my horse and I to grow as a team immensely. I’m honored to represent Spooner in such an amazing way as Rodeo Queen and remember how it felt as a little girl watching the other rodeo queens and princesses. I value individuality and perseverance which are qualities that I believe a Rodeo Queen should possess. Being the Spooner Rodeo Queen is greatly important to me because I have always wanted to inspire young women to be confident individuals the way the past rodeo queens inspired me.

 

 

Spooner Rodeo Princess: Gloria Stumph

Spooner Rodeo Princess 2019

Hello my name is Gloria Stumph and I am the 2022 Heart of the North Spooner Rodeo Princess! I am 19 years old and born and raised in Spooner! I am the daughter of Chad and Kati Stumph. I graduated from Spooner High School in 2021 and currently work at Tractor Supply Co.I have been working with horses since I was young and never lost my love for them. I began by taking lessons and soon bought my first horse. Although this horse probably wasn't the best first horse, I am the rider I am today because of her. I have always been very competitive when it comes to showing. I primarily show my horses through 4-H and WSCA. I have two of my own personal horses Elvis and Frankie. Elvis and I have participated in gymkhana events and open barrel races. Frankie is my pleasure horse and as of last year we found a new liking for jumping and have actually been invited to the Wisconsin State Fair Champions Challenge for jumping this year. The Spooner Rodeo has been such a big part of my life ever since I was little. Watching this rodeo and specifically barrel racing is what made me realize my love for horses and the sport of rodeo. I also remember watching those beautiful girls and their horses running flags and waving as they passed the large crowd. My grandma Lynn always told me one day I would be one of those girls. She has since passed away from cancer but it only made me want to be rodeo royalty even more. Some little girls dreamed of being a disney princess, but I wanted to be royalty for the rodeo. It all feels surreal to me still because this was my childhood dream. I want to become the role model my childhood self watched from the stands for so many years. I am so honored and blessed that I get to represent a rodeo that holds such a meaning in my heart. I will work my hardest to be the roll model that I always found in past royalty! Thank you to everyone for your support and I hope to see you all at the rodeo!

Miss Teen Rodeo Wisconsin: Samantha Kennell

 
 

Samantha Kennell is the 18-year-old daughter of Lonnie and Angie Kennell. Samantha was born and raised in Hayward, WI where she still resides. She is currently working at a local vet clinic. Samantha’s favorite riding activities include trail riding, training young horses, giving lessons, driving, and learning new disciplines. While her time out of the saddle is short, Samantha enjoys fostering rescue dogs, painting, volunteering at her church, spending time with her family and friends, and going for walks! Samantha’s passion for the western way of life began when she was around 11 years old after a few riding lessons for her birthday. Ever since then, she’s been hooked! Although Samantha admired horses for as long as she can remember, she did not grow up in the cowboy lifestyle. At around 12 years old, she leased her first horse, Sequoia, from a friend. She now has that mare's 2 year old daughter, Sassy.

Samantha has competed in many different disciplines and events with every shape and size of equine partner. She has been involved in 4H for many years and enjoyed helping the next generation of horsemen. Although Sammie loves each new adventure she tries, her true passion is for the sport of rodeo. As a spectator or part of the show, PRCA rodeo has taught her many life lessons and welcomed her with a warm embrace. She plans on continuing to show her love and support for the sport for many many years past her titles. God Bless!
