Queen Lindsey Strommen

Hey everyone,

Welcome to 2017, spring is definitely in the air and show season is right around the corner. I cannot wait to kick off our show season and reunite with our long lost show friends and their horses. To introduce myself a little bit I live in Foley with my husband on a hobby farm along with our 3 horses, miniature donkey, 2 dogs and a flock of chickens. In my spare time you can find me on the back of a horse trail riding and showing. My partner in crime is an 8 year old paint mare named Flora. We look forward to getting back out with the warm weather and hitting the road. Good luck to you all this season. God bless and ride safe.  

Princess Claire Thorpe

Hi all,

My name is Claire Thorpe, and I am so honored and excited to be the 2017 Princess. I hope that you all have had a restful winter and are now ready to get back into horse show season; I know I am more than ready! I live in Ramsey and board my horses ten minutes down the road in Nowthen. I own a two year old APHA filly, Remember Me Fancy (Sophie) and my main show QH, Crackers Dixie Chick (Dixie). I enjoy showing in the pleasure classes but am not afraid to kick up some dust in the gaming events when I want to have a fun time. My two lovely sidekicks and I are more than ready for show season to start, and we look forward to seeing everyone ride. Good luck to everyone showing this year, and remember to ride safe and have fun!

Junior Princess Ashley Vetsch
My name is Ashley Vetsch.  I am your 2017 Jr. Princess.  I am 11 years old and ride a Quarter/Pony named Savannah.  We are very excited to see you at all of our shows this year.  Please ride safe and have fun.  
God Bless, 
Little Miss Angel Baer
My name is Angel, and this is my second year as Little Miss.  My horse's name is Impulsive Zip, and he is 11 years old.  We ride Western Pleasure and English.  I sometimes borrow a game horse and ride at our saddle club's game shows too.  See you at our shows this year!
