Since crowned Miss Rodeo Australia in February, Katy Scott has been travelling Australia and performing her Queen duties.
After the finals Katy returned home for a few weeks before heading to her first rodeo as Queen at Ballarat in Victoria.
“I flew to Melbourne and received a hire car to Ballarat, I was a little worried about making the trip by myself but everything ran smoothly and the rodeo was amazing,” Ms Scott said.
Following her Queen duties Katy has spent most of her time in regional Victoria before moving up to Queensland for a three week Easter rodeo run.
“I started at Comet then went to Emerald and Roma,” Katy said.
“I also visited schools and discussed with students what rodeo was all about and let them know what rodeo events were coming up in their town.”
Katy said she was happy to see the children so excited and see their faces light up when she walked in the room.
Katy had since returned to Cloncurry, but the work had not finished.
Katy is currently organising her trip to America and helping organise the annual Curry Merry Muster.
“I leave for America on July 25 and will return just in time for the Curry Merry Muster.
“I am on the Curry Rodeo Committee helping organise a new event (yet to be announced) and the Rodeo Queen Quest.
“The Rodeo Queen Quest is a great opportunity for women to follow their dreams and Miss Rodeo Australia’s footsteps.”
Katy said in her spare time at home she would be cramming some much needed horse time.
“I cannot wait, my horses are out in the field at the moment and I am itching to get back on my horses and prepare to compete at the Curry Merry Muster.”
While Katy enjoys a month at home, she said she still looked forward to returning to the rodeo circuit. Katy’s tour will continue in Nebo, Queensland followed by the Junior National Finals Rodeo in Emerald.
Katy said when she first started the rodeo circuit, she was worried about how she would handle the amount of travelling.
“I love it and I am handling it well. The committees and people I have met have been very supportive and made the relocating easier.
Katy has also been keeping her social media up to date with events and rodeos that she attends. If you would like to see the latest of Miss Rodeo Australia, Katy Scott, then follow her on Facebook or Instagram.
