Woodstock Cuba Saddle Club (WCSC) held its third annual Royalty Show to select the Queen and Princess for the new show year. This year’s contest included a Buckaroo Princess. This year’s show was held on April 23, 2017, with ten girls competing for the coveted titles. The judges were 2017 Miss Rodeo Tennessee Simone Taylor, former Miss Tennessee High School Rodeo Queen and former Miss Rodeo Tennessee Sue Lynn Perry, and former Miss Rodeo of the Mid-South and former SASCA Queen Lori Simpson Pope.
Even though no rain was predicted for show time, just 30 minutes before the competition was scheduled to start, a heavy rain came down. Undaunted, the contestants “cowgirl-ed up,” put on their boots and competed in all categories in the downpour.
The Queens and Princesses were judged riding a horsemanship pattern, followed by a horsemanship interview and a one-on-one interview with the judges. They were scored on personality and appearance in both categories. They finished the competition with a test on WCSC Rule book, and parts of the saddle and horse. The Buckaroo Princess contestants were judged on horsemanship, personality and appearance, and a brief interview.
The new 2017 WCSC royalty are: Madi Trouy, 2017 Buckaroo Princess; Kelsey Stimpson, 2017 Princess, and Jena Davis, 2017 Queen.
