Miss Evergreen Rodeo 2022 – Abbie Halley

Hi, my name is Abbie Halley! I am the 2020-2022 Miss Evergreen Rodeo! I am super excited that we are finally being able to go back to some normality and get back to rodeoing. This last year has definitely been a new learning curve and put a lot of our lives on hold. Even though we were fighting against COVID I still had the privilege to represent the western way of life and the sport of rodeo at some rodeos that were able to push through and uphold guidelines and hold their rodeos.

I am 21 years old and the youngest of four children, and all my siblings and myself have been active in raising livestock and being a part of the western way of life.  I have just currently graduated from Northeastern Junior College with an associate degree in Animal Science. For 3 out of the four semesters at college I was on the Dean’s or President’s list. This fall I will be continuing my education at Iowa State University to get my master’s in Animal Science to be able to become an extension agent to help the youth of agriculture grow and become great leaders and role models.

I love being an ambassador for the sport of rodeo, the western lifestyle, beliefs and community. I am very blessed to be part of an organization that cares so much about our sport and for all of the fans.  I am also very blessed to have my horse and be able to travel all over the state of Colorado with her representing my rodeo and heritage.

This upcoming Father’s Day weekend will be a fun and thrilling weekend. I can’t wait for everyone to come see some little kids ride some sheep. I also can’t wait to see all of the people that come out and support the rodeo at the parade on Saturday June 18th at 10A.M. I hope I get to see you all there, meet you, and give you my autograph sheet.

2022 Evergreen Rodeo Princess – Abigail Tibbits

Hello from your 2022 Evergreen Rodeo Princess, Abigail Tibbits! I am fifteen years old and a sophomore at Fountain Valley School of Colorado. Last year I earned a Summit Scholarship to attend this school and ride on their Equestrian Team. It is a unique place that allows me to ride each and every day and to participate in this sport all four seasons. For a pony crazy girl like me, it is heaven on Earth. I compete on both the hunt seat and western IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association) teams. I currently ride varsity intermediate for over fences, flat, horsemanship and reining.  Trying to increase all my knowledge and skills in these disciplines keeps me busy to say the least! In the summer, I compete in the Colorado Hunter Jumper Association circuit and of course, travel all over Colorado attending rodeos.

I have been blessed with a family that is supportive of my passion and allows me to live out my dream. YOLO! You only live once and we enjoy the time spent on horseback, all the miles in the truck getting from place to place, and all the beautiful places we visit in our wonderful state of Colorado. This year I am super excited to represent this western way of life as Evergreen Rodeo Princess. I hope you will join me this Father’s Day Weekend and as always, long live Evergreen Rodeo!

2022 Evergreen Rodeo Jr. Princess – Molly Tibbits

Hello from your 2022 Evergreen Rodeo Jr. Princess, Molly Tibbits! I am twelve years old and a seventh grader at Falcon Middle School. This will be my first royalty reign and I am so excited to be a part of the rodeo. I enjoy EVERY aspect of owning a horse. (I guess I should say pony because I have two POAs.) Smores is my go-to, all around pony. He likes to jump and trail ride. I also do ranch riding and horsemanship on him. I am a member of both a hunt seat and western IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association) team. I moved up to a novice rider this year in both ranch riding, horsemanship, and on the flat. I even got to attend Quarter Horse Congress in Ohio this year to attend an IEA show. I love that horses allow me to travel and have so many wonderful experiences and meet so many new friends. I am looking forward to traveling all over our beautiful state of Colorado to attend rodeos this year. Please help me celebrate our western way of life and join me on Father’s Day weekend for Evergreen Rodeo. Hope to see you there!
