Miss Evergreen Rodeo 2024 – Amanda Cook

Amanda Cook – 2024 Miss Evergreen Rodeo

Hello everyone! My  Name is Amanda Cook and I am your Miss evergreen Rodeo Queen 2024!  I am so honored to be representing the beautiful community of Evergreen Colorado and my home town!

 

I am 22 years old and was born and raised in Evergreen under the roof of my amazing parents Shane and Theresa Cook along side my 6 other siblings! I have been riding horses since I was 6 months old and made that love grow by competing for Evergreen Rodeo JR  princess in 2011, and after finishing my reign as junior princess I joined the Westernaires at the age of 11 with my entire family. We performed       all over  traveling with the Westernaires not only in state but out of State as well. I graduated Westernaires at the age of 19 off of Varsity Big Red at the National Western Stock Show as well as 6 other Varsity level performance teams including trick and fancy riding.

I am currently studying Veterinary medicine as well as equine since, I plan to continue to grow my love and knowledge for animals by furthering my career as a Veterinary assistant and one day become a certified Veterinary Technician.  When I’m not working or furthering my education you can find my hunting or fishing with my family and friends now under the guidance of my big ol’ German Shepard Max, Who now watches over me and his big horse friends from up above….

Growing up I can always remember my favorite part of the summer being the Evergreen rodeo and parade. I can’t remember a year not attending and watching the royalty ride through the arena presenting the rodeo with such grace, beauty and honor. I can always remember telling my parents that would be me one day with a horse of my own.

I can not remember a time that my family didn’t own horses, from my first ride up to this very day I can tell you every lesson that my horses had taught me not only about riding but about how to take the fall…. My horses have taught me more life lessons than anything else in my life ever could. Now that my families first horses Copper and Trooper are watching over me from up above, guiding me through the training of my horses, I am very proud to say that I am fulfilling my dream as Miss Evergreen Rodeo with my trusty steads Stinker And Magic.

As I place this crown on my hat and sash on my shoulder I look forward to continue traveling all over Colorado, making great memories with my Princess Josie and my Jr Princess Mesa furthering our education as well as educating fans not only about the great sport we call rodeo but also about the western way of life.

I am honored to be your 2024 Miss Evergreen Rodeo Queen, See y’all fathers day weekend in Evergreen!

 

2024 Evergreen Rodeo Princess – Josie Sandifer

Hey there everyone! My name is Josie Sandifer, and I am your 2024 Evergreen Rodeo Princess . I am so grateful that I get to represent not just The Evergreen Rodeo, but my hometown as well. This will be my second year as an Evergreen Rodeo royalty title holder, and it is such an honor for me to be able to do so.
I am 14 years young and I am the fourth generation to proudly call Greystone Ranch my home. This is where my love for horses came to life. when I first started riding horses, I was only a year and a half old now I have an outstanding 19-year-old quarter horse/palomino named Smokey.  He enjoys playing in lakes and carrying royalty around! I am a sister, a daughter to Scott and Kara Sandifer and a granddaughter to Marilyn Sandifer.
I will be attending the local high school this year and in my free time I enjoy going on trail rides, paddle boarding on the lake, snowmobiling, hunting, and going to rodeos!  For 5 years I played volleyball but with COVID, I kinda got out of it and started in the great world of rodeo. This has been more then a dream come true for me and I can not wait to see what all this program has in store for me!
My family and I have been going to the Evergreen rodeo and parade every year since I was born. Being able to grow up in that kind of atmosphere has helped shape me into the person I am today.
I can’t wait to learn more and be able to give people the knowledge about one of the toughest sports out there and learn new things every day! Come on out to the Evergreen Rodeo Father’s day weekend to celebrate the beautiful Western tradition of rodeo!

 

2024 Evergreen Rodeo Jr. Princess – Mesa Marshall

Hi, everybody! My name is Mesa Marshall, and I am your Evergreen Rodeo Junior Princess. I am very grateful to be part of the Evergreen Rodeo and especially to be a part of the Evergreen Rodeo Royalty with Amanda and Josie. This year is going to be amazing and I can’t wait to have a lot of fun!

When I am not riding or taking care of my horses, I like to do a lot of art, listen to music, and spend time with my family. I also do a lot of sports including basketball, swimming, and riding my horses. In the winter I love to ski, ice skate on the Evergreen Lake, and go sledding. Another one of my favorite things to do is watch my cousin’s hockey games in the fall through the spring. I love to hang out with my friends as well. When I am older I want to be a pilot, graphic designer, and PRCA photographer.

Somebody I really look up to Amberley Snyder. If you don’t know who she is, she is a Professional paralyzed Barrel Racer. Her story helps me know that we can overcome things even when life gets challenging.

I hope to see you on Father’s Day weekend to celebrate our rodeo!

Long Live Evergreen Rodeo!
