Hello everyone! My name is Aubrey Nearing and I’m proud to be the 2023 Springdale Open Rodeo Queen! I’ve been riding horses since before I could walk and by myself since I was three years old. Horsemanship is truly important to me and runs in my family as I am the 6th generation to be involved with horses/rodeos. When I’m not attending school at Lakeside High School, you can usually find me out riding our horses. I spend as much time as possible practicing for events or learning skills to help me become a better rider! I’m definitely a determined person, I will do whatever it takes to achieve my goals! I have a passion for giving back to others and have been a proud volunteer for 3 years at “Operation Christmas Child”, which is an organization that helping at risk kids from around the world. I have also donated several hours to “Equestrian Partnership Training” as a ranch hand which has given me a great opportunity to learn from several different horse trainers. One of my favorite things to do, is helping young riders become more confident in their horsemanship skills and helping build a better team between horse and owner! My hobbies are essentially anything related to the outdoors. I love camping, motocross, boating, spending time with family and of course riding horses! I’m so excited to kick off an amazing rodeo season with such a great team! My childhood horse (Doc) and I will be happy to see all of you cheering on the contestants at the rodeos (especially Springdale, the best one of all)! See you all there!
