GET READY WITH ME!! (RODEO EDITION)
How to Get Ready for a Rodeo Queen Competition
So, you want to be a Rodeo Queen! Before you consider it, remember, it will require a lot of time and effort. The specific rules in this article are consistent with the North Texas State Fair Rodeo Queen rules. While the rules and guidelines and similar throughout competitions, there may be slight variations.
Be particular about choosing your clothing.
- You will need a western hat and boots throughout the competition. Make sure they are clean, well pressed, and fit well. Pick clothes that make you feel confident.
- For most of the pageant you will wear long sleeves, especially for the horse riding section.
Keep up with current events.Read both the national and local sections of the newspaper. During the interview, you will want to be well informed with what is going on in your community, the world, as well as the rodeo world. Study the official magazine or website of your rodeo's sponsoring organization.
Make sure that you have sent in your entry fee and application.Ensure that your application follows all of the directions and is complete. Do not hesitate to ask for help in completing your application; it's like a resume for a job, and that job is the title of Rodeo Queen.
Study horse anatomy and the rodeo rules.Have a family member ask you questions about it, so that you can be sure you can answer. There are also Rodeo Queen Coaches who can help you prepare for your interview and impromptu questions.
Practice your speech beforehand.You want to appear confident and natural. Give your speech to your family, or practice in front of the mirror. The best thing to do is have someone videotape you presenting the speech, so that you can ensure your hand gestures and walking look appropriate.
Know how to complete a reining pattern.Be sure your outfit does not attract to your movement in the saddle. Make sure you have no fringes, no dangling earrings, and no necklaces, for example. Keep your outfit simple, clean, and polished. Remember to have a large smile.
Remember it is important for you, your horse and your tack to look nice.Groom your horse well. It is better for your horse to be good-natured and well behaved than it is for it to be a magazine poster pony. That said, you should still try to make your horse look as good as it can. Pay attention to its mane and tail, coat, whiskers, and hooves.
Practice.Make sure you get a copy of the pattern that you will be riding. This should be given out at orientation or provided by the program coordinator.
- Work hard to remember the pattern as a whole, but be careful not to practice it together too much. Horses are smart and your horse can learn to anticipate what comes next, rather than trusting you. Break the pattern into sections and work on those pieces often.
- Be sure you practice with the horse you will be using in the competition and with the same tack that you will use in the competition. This allows you to become a team, and also ensures that your tack all fits appropriately.
