MISS SAN BENITO RODEO
Brittany Moore, 2022 Miss San Benito Rodeo Queen
Aside from the sport of rodeo, I am an active member of some clubs at the California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo. The Cal Poly Vet Science Club and I volunteer at the swine enterprise unit on campus. I am also a co-chair of the apparel team for Cal Poly Rodeo, where we design and market the apparel for the team. I began riding horses when I was in elementary school with close family friends, which was when I fell in love with being on and around horses. I started entering the Saddle Horse Show & Rodeo when I was a young girl, running barrels, keyhole and participating in the ribbon roping once I was old enough. The San Benito County Saddle Horse Show & Rodeo is one of my favorite rodeos to attend each summer. I was a member of the CHSRA District 4 Rodeo Team through middle school and high school. Currently I am a member of the Cal Poly Rodeo Team, California Cowboys Professional Rodeo Association and the West Coast Barrel Racing Association.

Some of my special interests include volleyball, swim team, FFA, class office, volunteer work, hanging out with my family, spending time with my friends, going skiing, and school work. I also enjoy going to the beach, spending time at the lake, traveling, and doing internships/jobs over the summer. I am currently on the District 4 rodeo team and my events are Reined Cow Horse and cutting. I also participate in the National Reined Cow Horse Association and have been for around eight years. My favorite rodeo is the San Benito County Saddle Horse Show which I have been a contestant in for 11 years. I missed my first show ever last year because I had COVID. I also enjoy watching the NFR.

Outside of rodeos, ropings, and brandings, I play basketball, show livestock, and hunt. I have played basketball since 6th grade at Spring Grove School and now play varsity Basketball for the highschool. I have always been surrounded by livestock so in 5th grade when given the option, I started showing lambs. Lastly, every winter my grandpa and I hunt pheasant and chukar. All three definitely find a spot as my favorite hobbies. Growing up, I was surrounded by cattle operations. Brandings here, stockers there, shipping every summer, and of course, I always wanted to be horse-back. The San Benito County Rodeo is quite the tradition that my whole family and I have participated in for years. I even won my first belt buckle, from the boot race there. Now, I am dedicated to ACTRA team ropings as a heeler, WCJRA rodeos, and every so often helping my family get the calves branded!
