2021 Garfield County Fair & Rodeo royalty

The Garfield County Fair & Rodeo Royalty program is dedicated to provide an opportunity for young women to be spokespersons for the Garfield County Fair & Rodeo, the sport of rodeo, the western way of life and their community of Garfield County.  The Royalty program utilizes teamwork, organizational skills, public speaking, community service, and relationships to prepare participants in becoming future community leaders.

2022 Queen – Isabella Prough

Hello! My name is Isabella Prough. As Garfield County Fair & Rodeo Royalty Queen it is my privilege to represent the western lifestyle and traditions of the cowboys and cowgirls who carry on the rodeo. I am 14 years old, and I am a seventh grader. I was born in South Lyon, Michigan and moved to Colorado when I was 2 years old. My family and I recently moved to Silt Mesa about a year ago from Glenwood Springs.

I have been riding horses for about 4 years now. My interest in equine began when my parents started bringing me to watch rodeos. When I was little, I wanted to always be in the rodeo. I started volunteering at Ascendigo Autism camp at the ranch, that’s when I really started to develop my passion with horses.

I recently found my soulmate 2 years ago, her name is “Maple”, and she is a 17-year-old sorrel mare. I have shown her in 4-H at the Garfield County Fair and competed in barrels at the Carbondale Rodeo, along with other shows.

I recently joined 4-H; this will be my second year in the Garfield County 4-H/Blue Ribbon club. I will be showing horse, along with poultry and swine. The biggest highlight of my year is the Garfield County Fair and Rodeo.

I have always seen the Garfield County Fair & Rodeo Royalty, and I have always wanted to be a part of it and the great tradition it represents. I look forward to being a role model, making new memories, meeting new people, and representing Garfield County as I travel across Colorado for this 2021-2022 year. Hope to see you at our events!
