The first time I met Freya Ford she was attending horse camp here at the ranch for her very first time. She was your typical horse crazy girl who didn’t have horses of her own. This first camp would
be the first moment of the many long hours she would spend at the ranch before heading off to college years later. I am sure Freya had a blast at t
hat camp because, despite her stepsister breaking an arm, Freya returned year after year. She was soon invited to participate in 4-H
with one of our horses, Joker. Not many people were huge fans of Joker, but Freya loved him and made him really work. As her years in 4-H went by, she used other horses as Joker was needed in the “dude string”. The other younger horses she used were DD and Rocket. Even after a major accident at the 4-H Horse Show with Rocket, her determination to do great things with horses was not diminished.
Today, Freya is doing great things. The first rodeo title she held was Miss Bonner County Rodeo, then Miss Pro West and now she is Miss Rodeo Idaho. As the 54th Miss Rodeo Idaho, she is the first young woman to hail
from North of Lewiston. For the past year she has been traveling far and near representing and promoting Idaho rodeo. Freya’s Platform as Queen is that “anything is possible”. Freya says, “I set lofty goals for myself and give it all I’ve got to obtain them.” It is because of her faith and determination to achieve her goals that she is where she is today.
Sunday, November 29, Freya and 28 other state rodeo queens will check into the Miss Rodeo America Competition at the New Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Throughout that week the ladies will compete in events ranging from Horsemanship to Speeches to a fashion show. The coronation of the 2010 Miss Rodeo America takes place on December 5, at 9:45 am.
All of us here at Western Pleasure Guest Ranch wish Freya a safe trip to Las Vegas and the best of luck in the Miss Rodeo
America Competition. I can’t think of anyone better to be representing our great state in this heated competition.
