She also spent her summers carrying flags at the sandpoint rodeo, joining a flag team and attending playday events. She will spend her year with her two girls. Her bay mare quarter horse named Pixie and her new addition, a Palomino mare named Honey. Grace feels blessed and honored to represent the Springdale community! She plans to attend many rodeos, she also plans to visit schools, hospitals, Senior centers, and local events.

During her reign she plans to promote and teach the importances of our western heritage and the sport of rodeo.
Andrea Wellhausen is proud to continue as the 2021 Springdale Frontier Days Open Rodeo Princess. This reign marks her third as royalty for her hometown, and this 19 year old has the heart and mindset of keeping the rodeo alive. Andrea has been an active participant and volunteer for the association for about ten years. During this time she held the Junior Rodeo title for 2016-2018. Andrea has also been a member of her 4-H group, Singing Spurs, for 13 years where she practices her horse project by attending horse shows, giving presentations, and completing record books. She has been an FFA officer at Mary Walker Highschool for four years holding the office as Vice President and Reporter. Andrea is involved in a therapeutic program called Horse Heritage Educational Program as both a volunteer and instructor where she attends Camp Reed as a Wrangler to teach children basic riding skills and knowledge. With this program, she works with students of all ages and all disabilities with the focus being to improve their riding abilities and take steps to reach their own personal goals. Andrea is part of the Helmet Tough Campaign (#HelmetTough) and will be continuing to wear her helmet at all rodeo and riding events to promote awareness. “Even though helmets are not at all fashioned with the western attire or queen attire for that matter, I still put a crown on my head that shows that I am still a queen.” Andrea is excited about this 2021 rodeo season and representing her hometown, family, and association.
Audrey Wellhausen is proudly representing the younger cowboys and cowgirls as the 2021 Springdale PeeWee Rodeo Queen. She is very excited to represent this community that she calls home. For a long time Audrey has been in the background of SFDA; helping with work days, setting up bingo, and sharing the experience of the Springdale Rodeo. Now she gets to be the face of the PeeWee Rodeo and Springdale itself!
Audrey is a Sophmore at Mary Walker High School where she is a varsity volleyball player. Sadly this season was altered, but she was happy to be on the court and a leader in her school. When she isn't doing school work, you will find Audrey on her horse or playing with her dog. She loves trail riding and going to smaller rodeos to support them. Audrey also volunteers with a therapeutic horseback riding program where she shares the horse experience with others.
When you see Audrey do her grand entry run with her horse Rooster, you will notice she does not wear the same attire as many other queens. That is because she is a proud #HelmetTough rider. Every queen should protect themselves and still rock the crown!
