Miss Sunbelt Expo Rodeo Heads to Miss Rodeo USA National Pageant


2014/12/02


It’s a rare honor to compete for Miss Rodeo USA and 18-year-old Sydney Caen, daughter of Morris and Wendy Caen of Columbia, Tennessee, is one of the special chosen few who will compete for the title in January in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Sydney was crowned Miss Sunbelt Expo Rodeo in October at the 38th annual Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition in Moultrie, Georgia, and she served as an ambassador for the sport of rodeo during the Expo. The Expo is the largest Farm Show in America and North America’s Premier Farm Show®. Every year the Expo brings together all segments of rural living, from research and education to live farm harvests and agribusiness. Add in rural lifestyle fun, truck, tractor, live field demonstrations, reining and barrel horse demonstrations, and ATV test drives and the venue is a perfect showcase for everything farm-related.

The Miss Rodeo USA pageant will be held during the International Finals Rodeo January 11-18, 2015.  Contestants from across the country will compete for the title Miss Rodeo USA 2015, who will serve as the official ambassador for the International Pro Rodeo Association.

In her competition speech, Sydney will stress the importance of promoting farming in America. “The average age of an American Farmer is around 60 years old and without young farmers to replace them, America’s food supply will be negatively impacted. Farm shows like the Sunbelt Expo are so important to pass knowledge and a passion for farming down to the next generation,” said Sydney.  

Sydney’s Platform is: Don’t just follow your dreams, catch them. Sydney has qualified for the National Finals Rodeo twice, won many buckles and lots of money over the years. “Never give up and never let others take your dreams from you;” Sydney loves to share this with aspiring young athletes in any sport, especially rodeo. If you would like to help promote Sydney, you can reach her via email at 2014misssunbeltexpo@gmail.com.

The International Finals Rodeo, January 16-18 at the State Fair Arena in Oklahoma City, features the top cowboys and cowgirls from across the U.S. and three Canadian provinces as they compete for World Championship Titles in eight rodeo events.  Events include bareback bronc riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc, tie-down roping, cowgirl breakaway roping, cowgirl barrel racing, and bull riding.
