Hollie Carlson

Hello Fellow Rodeo Fans! My name is Hollie Danielle Carlson. I am the 16-year-old daughter of Stacey and Deonna Carlson. I was born in the frigid town of Anchorage, Alaska; however I moved to Idaho with my family when I was a year old. I currently live in Meridian, Idaho, and I am going into my senior year of high school. During my junior year in high school, I also began attending College of Western Idaho, obtaining dual credits for my freshman year of college. With an academic scholarship to whatever college of my choice in Idaho; yes, I guess you could call me a bit of a nerd!

My college goal will be to major in business management with an emphasis in agriculture, along with a major in public relations and a minor pastry arts. The pastry arts is definitely purely for fun! Maybe someday, I might have my own cupcake bakery - who knows!

It was absolutely a dream come true in June, 2013 to be crowned your Eagle Rodeo Jr. Queen for 2013. I have relished in every opportunity I have been presented to promote Idaho’s largest ICA rodeo. It has been exciting to attend all sorts of different parades and rodeos in places like Twin Falls, Vale, Pendleton, Nyssa, and of course all over the Treasure Valley. Everywhere I went, I was able to not only educate those about our great Eagle Rodeo, but also proudly display the true Western way of Life. In the words of the late-great Will Rogers, “If you want to be successful, it's just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing.”

I have 5 people I look up to as role models. Normally, people have just one, but I strive to emulate the qualities of all these people in myself. I want to be like my Mom, understanding, and calm. Mrs. Donnis Mager, who has helped polish me into the young woman I am today. I would like to be as successful at training Reigning horses as Nathan Kent, and ride as well as Chris Cox! Finally, I’d like to be as kind, compassionate, and classy as Miss Freya Ford-Walton, Miss Rodeo Idaho 2009.
