Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Junior Queen
Hey Ya’ll! I’m Paige Stehly, your current Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Jr Queen! I am a senior at Valley Center High School, where I’m a Varsity Cheerleader as well as an ASB student. In my free time I enjoy Hula Dancing at my Halau in vista, and working on my vintage truck. I am lucky enough to be born and raised on a beautiful ranch with my entire family and wide variety of animals! For as long as I can remember I’ve had a passion for horses and rodeo, my horse Rego and I are so excited for all the adventures that are to come. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to share my love and passion for the sport of rodeo while representing my hometown!
Valley Center Stampede Rodeo
Hi, my name is Macy Mault! I am 10 years old and go to Valley Center Elementary school. I ride western and I am learning to ride English with my trainer. My horse’s name is Milly, she is a good girl, but a little sassy. I am apart of the Valley Center Vaqueros and love going to club events and competing in gymkhanas and rail shows. I have participated in the Valley Center Western days and Escondido Veterans day parades with the Vaqueros as well. When I am not hanging out with my horse Milly, I am practicing showmanship with my chicken Lil Dude for upcoming 4H events. In the summer time I love going to my grandparents in Lake Havasu to go swimming and boating.

Mia, 19, is a lifelong resident of Valley Center, CA. After graduating early from Valley Center Prep in January 2021, she jumped right into pursuing her higher education and is now currently attending Mira Costa College in Oceanside, CA as a business major with a focus in marketing. Her future goal is to either bring up her own business, or work higher up in either the off-road or rodeo industry, TAP as their corporate Director of Creative Marketing. She maintains a high GPA and finished her last semester off with 95+% in all of her classes, all while navigating a full time job.
While she doesn’t have much time outside of school and work, when she does, she enjoys going to the desert with family and friends, breakaway roping at Hell Creek Ranch, and rodeo queening!
Mia has held 3 rodeo queen titles since 2017 and has been competing intermittently since 2014. She had the honoring of being the 2017 Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Jr. Queen, the 2018 Poway Rodeo Jr. Queen, as well as the 2020-2021 Southern California Youth Bull Riders Queen. During these times, she spent the year(s) representing different rodeos all over Southern California and took pride in educating and keeping the western lifestyle alive for generations to come. She has always found a passion for sharing her equine and rodeo knowledge, and while she isn’t competing, often coaches other girls who are.
Jumping back to the basics once more, Mia has been around horses her entire life, and began showing at Poway Valley Riders Association at the age of 5 on her first pony, Cali. Cali took great care of Mia, and helped shape her into the advanced, sticky seated rider she is today! Upon outgrowing her pony and child sized English saddle around 7-years-old, she began to get comfortable in a western saddle on a Missouri Fox Trotter, Justin, and then her (at the time) 6-year-old 17hh AQHA named Heza Smokin’ Package, or better known as “Doc”. Over the last 10 years, Doc (now 15yo) and Mia have managed to acquire multiple Valley Center Vaqueros rail show, cowboy challenge, and gymkhana championships as well as 3 queen titles together.
Mia is more than excited to have the opportunity to represent her hometown rodeo that she has been attending for as long as she can remember! See y’all down the rodeo road.
