BRAWLEY -Â The Cattle Call Arena will be hosting royalty! The Brawley Cattle Call Queen contestants will be joined by Miss Rodeo California, Carollann Rietta Scott, at the Horsemanship Competition at the Cattle Call Arena on Friday, October 2, at 7 pm.
Scott will carry the prestigious title throughout the state and nation promoting the people and traditions she loves.
It is her goal to not only spread the word about rodeo and promote the sport but to also remind people of the history of rodeo. She believes as a modern cowgirl she must never forget her heritage and the traditions that have carried cowboys and cowgirls for so many years.
This is the first time in recent years that Miss Rodeo California will appear in Brawley.
Horsemanship is Friday night, to be followed on Saturday by the Coronation at Imperial Palms Resort at Barbara Worth. Horsemanship is free to attend; non-reserved tickets for the coronation are still available through the Brawley Chamber of Commerce for $35.
There are eight contestants in the running for the contest. The 2015-16 Cattle Call Queen candidate is Chelsey Roper, 17. Teen Queen candidates are Lydia Jackson, 14; Bayleigh Nelson, 14; and Keeley Gene Poloni, 14. Junior Queen candidates are Kaitlyn Jackson, 10; and Rylee Locher, 11. Little Miss candidates are Cheyenne Cox, 7; and Genesis Sandoval, 7. Queen and Teen Queen candidates are judged on appearance, personality and horsemanship. Junior Queen and Little Miss candidates will not ride, but will still be judged on their fashion and personality.
Winners represent the Brawley Chamber of Commerce and the community of Brawley at a variety of events in the coming year. For more information, please contact the Brawley Chamber of Commerce at 760-344-3160
