Say howdy to your 2019 Roots N’ Boots Rodeo Royalty Court! Roots N’ Boots Pro Rodeo is proud to present Rodeo Queen Sydney Vigneux, Teen Queen Adeylia Woodward, and Jr. Teen Queen Amber Michne! Saddle up and join these talented cowgirls as they hit the rodeo trail as the 2019 Roots N’ Boots Rodeo Royalty Court!
Roots N’ Boots Rodeo Queen Sydney Vigneux is no stranger to the world of rodeo. This 20-year-old cowgirl calls Queen Creek, Arizona home and is honored to represent her hometown’s western legacy as the Roots N’ Boots Rodeo Queen. As an avid barrel racer and horsewoman, Sydney loves the thrills found in the rodeo arena and the bond created between rider and horse. Keep your eyes peeled and you might catch this high-flying cowgirl at a P&M Progressive, NBHA, Chandler Vaqueros Saddle Club or BR Diamond & Spurs barrel race near you! When her Roots N’ Boots crown isn’t sitting proudly upon her head, you can find Sydney hard at work in the classroom. Sydney currently attends Chandler-Gilbert Community College where she is roping in an impressive 3.7 GPA! However, Sydney’s great success isn’t limited to the classroom and the rodeo arena. Sydney is greatly involved in her community and has spent many years as a volunteer for the Roots N’ Boots Special Kids Rodeo and has given back to young rodeo Sweethearts as a mentor and role model. An employee at Saba’s Western Store, a college student, community service ambassador, and rodeo queen, Sydney is taking the many responsibilities and opportunities she has been given by the reigns. When she does have some free time, you can find this one-of-a-kind cowgirl enjoying family vacations, playing guitar, and enjoying high tea in historic buildings.
I had the pleasure of speaking to Sydney and getting her perspective on some of the wonderful aspects of being the 2019 Roots N’ Boots Rodeo Queen! When asked what she is enjoying most about her rodeo queen journey thus far, Sydney shared,
“I love everything that I do while I am representing my rodeo, but I definitely get the most excited when we are working with children. Kids are the future of rodeo, whether they grow up to be fans or athletes. I have the opportunity of making a lasting impression on the kids, and I try my best to make my interaction with them as fun and positive as possible. I aim to inspire them, so there is no greater compliment I can receive then when a little girl says they want to be just like me.”
In your opinion, what makes Roots N’ Boots “More than a Rodeo?”
“Roots N’ Boots Queen Creek is a community event tailored to celebrate the history of our town. Not long ago, Queen Creek was a small, but vast farming and ranching community. Now we have grown and become a diverse and thriving town full of people from all different parts of Arizona and beyond. Our goal is to bring everyone together and to create a fun family environment that everyone can look forward to each year.”
Sydney was proud to share what she believes is the most important aspect of being a rodeo Queen.
“Being the ambassador of my rodeo is of course my most important job, but my scope goes much farther than that. My goal is to engage the public to educate them about western heritage and rodeo, and to create as many new fans as I can. As they say, the world needs more cowboys. Rodeo queens inspire people of all ages to come out to see their first rodeo. Rodeo is not possible without the support of the fans, and it is my hope for the future that I can share this passion by bringing my grandkids to their first rodeo.”
What are you most looking forward to as you continue your journey as the 2019 Roots N’ Boots Rodeo Queen?
“This year, as I travel down the rodeo road with my court, I’m looking most forward to sharing my love of rodeo & enlightening others to the heritage of our western lifestyle. Not only will we get to partake in all our town events but all the parades, rodeos and other new adventures that will help me grow as an individual.”
Cowboy Lifestyle Network would like to congratulate Sydney on her title and can’t wait to see the wonderful things she accomplishes throughout the rest of the year.
Tip your hats to the multi-talented Roots N’ Boots Teen Queen, Miss Adeylia Woodward! This 15-year-old cowgirl hails from the great town of Queen Creek. As an honor roll student at her high school, Adeylia is as dedicated in the classroom as she is the rodeo arena. When she isn’t in class, Adeylia has a wide range of interests and hobbies. Currently Adeylia can be found participating in the Casteel Rodeo Club, 4-H, Queen Creek Gymkhana Club and Casteel Advanced Dance. But those aren’t her only accomplishments! Adeylia is also an accomplished vocalist and enjoys sharing her singing talents with others. She has seen multiple successes in her endeavors, one of them being named the 2016 Best Junior Handler at the National Specialty Rhodesian Ridgeback Dog Show! Adeylia is proud of her town’s western heritage and sees her role as the Roots N’ Boots Teen Queen as an opportunity to educate others on the great value of, and history of the sport of rodeo and the ranching and agriculture lifestyle.
Racing in next is the Roots N’ Boots Junior Teen Queen, Miss Amber Michne. This 14-year-old cowgirl is a superstar in the classroom and in the rodeo arena! As the President of her high school’s National Junior Honors Society and Secretary for the Spirit of Queen Creek 4H Club, Amber is heavily involved in giving back to her school and her community. When she isn’t volunteering as a junior lifeguard or competing in 4-H, the Queen Creek Junior Rodeo, or the Arizona High School Rodeo Association, Amber can be found spending time with her friends and family. Amber is grateful for the opportunity to serve as the 2019 Roots N’ Boots Junior Teen Queen and hopes to be a role model for the young cowboys and cowgirls of Queen Creek, Arizona.
This March 14th-17th make sure to come on out to Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Centre and support these three ladies as they represent the 2019 Roots N’ Boots Rodeo! Cowboy Lifestyle Network would like to congratulate Queen Sydney Vigneux, Teen Queen Adeylia Woodward, and Junior Teen Queen Amber Michne on a wonderful start to their reign as the 2019 Roots N’ Boots Royalty Court.
