Hi! My name is Kate Reinke and I am the 2017 Eagle Rodeo Senior Queen. I am the 14 year old daughter of Jay and Lisa Reinke of Meridian, Idaho. I have a 17-year old brother, Drew, and I am currently a freshman at Rocky Mountain High School in Meridian.
I have been a member of the JC Riders 4H Club for six years and am the current chairman of the community service committee. I have competed at the Western Idaho Fair for the last six years in various horse events and in 2016 I received the Reserve High Point Western award and the palomino breed award. I really love soccer and played soccer for several years, including goalie for two years; however, I gave all that up for horses and queening.
Last year I won my first title as the Western Riding Club Junior Queen and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have learned so much about the sport of rodeo and am looking forward to learning more. I have met many wonderful people and been able to experience so many different things. I’m very excited about the upcoming year and am looking forward to representing the Eagle Rodeo to the best of my abilities and sharing wonderful adventures with Jodie, Lori and of course, Cearra. Being a part of the Eagle Rodeo court and a representative of the PRCA Eagle Rodeo is definitely a dream come true for me.

Hello, I'm 16 years old and have lived in Idaho all of my life. I attend Mountain View High School as a junior. My parents are Jim and Jodie Lambrecht, and I also have an older sister Ashlie Lambrecht. I love the summer, as it's the best time of the year for non-stop riding. My horse I ride is a registered paint horse. Her name is “Bella” My other hobbies are hunting, swimming, archery and chilling with my friends. I've been riding ever since I was about five and have loved it ever since. When I was old enough I joined 4-H. My horse Bella and I are looking forward to seeing everyone in parades, waving to the crowd during my queen runs and having fun being the 2014 Eagle Rodeo SR Queen. I have watched our Rodeo since I could remember and now I look forward to being part of this tradition and wonderful community event. I believe that when it comes to rodeo, horses, and life for that matter, knowledge is never-ending. Armed with a passion for helping others and words of wisdom from my mother, “Do something that makes you happy and something that makes a difference,” I am forever grateful to my friends, family, and sponsors that have helped me on this journey. Every little bit of your time and efforts are precious to me and I am ever so thankful. I am absolutely elated for my year as Eagle Rodeo Sr. Queen. I hope to see you all along the rodeo trail and I look forward to meeting everyone at our 2015 Eagle Rodeo.
Hello Rodeo Friends and family, I am the 13 year old daughter of LeRoy and Quyann Kerby. I have one brother, Zack. I am very proud to be an official ambassador of the sport of rodeo. I have a future aspiration to be a rodeo competitor myself; I look forward to promoting and educating others about the sport I have grown to love. I attend Lake Hazel Middle School where I play basketball and am on the Pride Committee. Besides riding horses I love arts and crafts, showing rabbits, my horse “Jynx” and swine in 4h. My first rodeo queen pageant involvement began at age 12 as a contestant in the 2013 Eagle Rodeo Pageant. Unknown to me at the time was how valuable my pageant experience would prove to be. I’ve gained confidence through public speaking, poise through modeling, and increased her knowledge of my community and the sport of rodeo. As the Eagle Rodeo Jr Queen, I hope to inspire others to enter their local and state rodeo queen pageant so they too, will benefit from the experience while building confidence and achieving dreams.

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.
My name is Megan Charrier, I am the 17 year old daughter of Rich & Jodi Charrier. I live in Meridian, Idaho where I attend Mountain View High School.
My family is very important to me and I love sharing my passion for horses with them. When I am not taking care of my three horses, I love to find time to read, travel with my family, and spend quality time with my friends.
I am actively involved with my 4-H club, where I am the president elect of the JC Riders, and compete through Ada County Horse 4-H in both horse and non-horse contests. This last year I competed in Senior Team Demonstration where I placed first at state, and qualified for the Eastern National 4-H Horse Round Up in Kentucky, the largest youth contest in our nation. Where I represented the state of Idaho placing first.
Being Rodeo Royalty has taught me responsibility, and determination and it is with those learned qualities that I embrace the opportunity to be the first ICA Eagle Rodeo Senior Queen. Giving me the opportunity to serve as an ambassador for the sport of rodeo and the community of Eagle, while representing those who are invested in this rodeo. I believe it is vitally important to reach out to all rodeo fans, young and old, with a positive attitude, as an example of character, responsibility, and the western way of life.
