Hello everyone! My name is Kaylee Tate and I am honored to represent the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo! 3 years ago I was blessed to be the 2015 Valley Center Rodeo Young Miss and I am even more excited to be back as your 2018 Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Junior Queen. I am 15 years old and currently a freshman at Scripps Ranch High. I am currently taking Japanese with the goal of becoming bilingual. My love for horses started with my first encounter at the age of 4 and I’ve been hooked ever since! I enjoy barrel racing around Southern California on my APHA mare Leo’s Half Moon Bay, also known as Tubby. As a PVRA member I was the reserve Gymkhana champion last year and was so happy to be a part of the 2017 Poway Rodeo Shooting Stars Drill Team. I have been fortunate to be a part of the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo over the past 3 years as a Flag Runner. I also loved competing in their junior barrels. When I am not doing something connected to horses (which is rare) I am surfing, playing volleyball, doing community events with my girl scout troop, and running. I’m beyond blessed to be able to represent the sport that I love, in the town that I love, as the 2018 Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Junior Queen!
