Hello fellow rodeo fans, my name is Allie McCall and I am your Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Queen 2013. I’m extremely honored to have earned this title and to have the opportunity to represent the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo for my second year. This past year I have traveled around our neighboring communities attending other rodeos, riding in parades and being an ambassador of the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo. I’ve also spent time helping out at many of the community events here in Valley Center from Christmas at Bates Nut Farm to the Relay for Life walk.
My love of animals started before I could talk and has continued throughout my entire life. I began riding horses at the age of seven and in them found my first passion and true love. Riding has taught me a lot of life lessons. I’ve learned how to fall, to love, to trust, how to deal with the loss of a best friend and how important it is to keep striving and working towards your dreams.
I moved to Valley Center in March 2011 and it has been a dream come true. I grew up in the city and always wished I could live someplace where I could ride my horse down the street. I’m lucky to say that my dream has become my reality. This amazing town has welcomed me with open arms and has really taught me what it means to be a part of a community.
If I’m not out in the barn with my horses, I’m working, going to school or volunteering. Right now I’m working towards my undergraduate degree and my goal is to earn my Master’s Degree so I can become an Occupational Therapist. I currently work with children who have special needs. My dream is to work as a Hippotherapist which would combine my love of animals, children and helping people.
I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to represent the sport of rodeo, the western lifestyle along with the passions and values that come with it for another year. I feel very blessed to represent the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo and inspire the next generation of rodeo fans.
Hi cowgirls and cowboys! My name is Renee Terbush and I am so honored to say that I am your Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Jr. Queen for 2013. I have been riding now for 9 years and it is a passion for me. I have lived in this wonderful community for 8 years now and I am so honored to spend a year representing it. Throughout the year I will be attending rodeos, parades, Valley Center events and more. I couldn’t be more excited for the memories and the new friendships to come.
I am currently a Junior at Valley Center High School. I combine my passion for riding my horse Ivan, shooting my bow and arrows, participating in the Vaqueros Young Riders group, Homesteaders 4H and being in the marching band at the high school. I have considered myself a cowgirl and rodeo fan since I attended my first rodeo and moving to our rural Valley Center. I have always dreamed of being one of the queens. Traveling, meeting new people, riding my horse everywhere and representing the community I love so dearly. I am so excited to travel to different rodeos, parades, events and be one of the ambassadors of the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo with Valley Center Rodeo Queen, Allie McCall. Allie, you have been an amazing friend to me the past few years and I couldn’t be happier to spend this time with you. I am so grateful to be able to say that I get to grow up in a place like this and finally pursue my dream of being a Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Queen, symbolizing the sport of rodeo and the country way of life.
