Alyssa Adair is Miss Rodeo Ogden for 2021, and she will spend the next few months promoting the Ogden Rodeo at different rodeos and parades in Utah. She has been competing in queen competitions since she was seven, and this was her first time competing for the Miss Rodeo Ogden title. This year, the competition was closed to the public (except for the horsemanship portion) because of COVID restrictions. After demonstrating her skills on horseback, which is her favorite part of the competition, she was crowned Miss Rodeo Ogden.
Bradie Jill Jones passed on the title after holding it for two years since the pandemic put a hold on the competition last year. She enjoyed going to 25th street and teaching children about the meaning and history behind Pioneer Days. She taught them why there are painted horses all around downtown Ogden during the weeks leading up to July 24th. “Ogden Pioneer Days is one of the largest and best rodeos in the nation. Being the ambassador of it is the biggest honor.” She is grateful for the ride she had, despite the hard times and the influential people who have passed away this year. The 2021 Pioneer Days is one to look forward to, and she is optimistic that it will buoy up the spirit of Ogden Valley. Alyssa anticipates she will be attending most of the rodeos in Northern Utah, and she is hopeful many of them happen this year, considering the COVID restrictions that might still be in place.
We hope you enjoy your ride as Miss Rodeo Ogden Alyssa!
