Miss Mini Rodeo, Nevada Rohwedder

We are honored to introduce Miss Mini Rodeo, Nevada Rohwedder. Nevada was born and raised in Santa Maria, and she is currently a 5th grade student at Alice Shaw Elementary. Nevada is a competitive gymnast and active equestrian. She was riding horses before she could walk and began competing at the age of 4. Nevada is excited to be Miss Mini Rodeo because horses and the western lifestyle are important in her personal life and family history. Last year, she volunteered with the Golden Circle of Champions and attended the rodeo each night to fill the boots with donations. Her favorite parts of the rodeo were watching the barrel racing and amazing trick-rider.
