Valley Center Rodeo Queen
San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians opened up the gates of Indian Hills Ranch for the Horsemanship portion of the 2015 Valley Center Rodeo Queen Pageant on April, 4th. The ranch offered the contestants the perfect location to show off why they should be the 2015 Valley Center Rodeo Queen, Junior Queen, Young Miss, and Little Miss. The 14 Contestants started off the day by showing off their Horsemanship skills in Indian Hill Ranch's indoor arena. Following the Horsemanship portion they were subjected to personal interviews with the judges. This gives the judges the opportunity to really see if the contestants are up for the job being a Valley Center Rodeo Queen. The evening portion of the pageant was held at the Valley Center Middle School. The contestants opened up the pageant with dancing to the song Georgia Peaches. Mariah Hunt, the 2015 Poway Rodeo Queen, did an amazing job as Mistress of Ceremonies. The Contestants the wowed the crowd by modeling their western wear and giving speeches and answering impromptu questions. These young women have spent the last 3 months preparing for this evening and it really showed. The evening came to an end with the crowning of Bridgette LaHaye as Queen, Molly Fagan as Junior Queen, Kaylee Tate as Young Miss, and Samantha Picot as Little Miss.
