Junior Queen

Stella Erb

Stella is a 15 year old freshman at El Captain High School. From one arena to the next, Stella is passionate about representing rodeo as a junior queen and also as a competitor. She is currently a member of the California Junior Rodeo Association, where she competes in 7 events, her favorites being team roping and pole bending. When Stella was 10 years old, she was crowned the Poway Rodeo Young Miss which ended up being an incredible 3 year reign. She continued on to be the 2023 Jr. Miss Rodeo Lakeside. Stella couldn’t be more thrilled to represent the Poway Rodeo once again as their 2024 Jr. Queen.

More Information

Rodeo Queens are the spokeswomen for the sport of Rodeo and the community. Knowledge of the sport, poise and horsemanship are all essential skills for this important job. Each year the Poway Rodeo holds their Rodeo Royalty Pageant to choose their ambassadors. The Pageant is made up of three categories: Personal Interview, Horsemanship and Public Speaking. Each contestant will be tested on their knowledge for equine, rodeo facts and current events during a private personal interview. During the horsemanship competition, each contestant will display their riding ability while performing a designated pattern and presentation run for the judges.  Additionally, they will be quizzed on their knowledge of horse science, tack and terminology. During the final public speaking competition, the contestants will display their speaking skills, model, and answer impromptu questions on stage. During the entire competition each contestant will be judged on personality, goals and poise in hopes of choosing the most qualified ambassador for our sport.
