Pageant Details & FAQ

As contestants ask questions, we will be adding answers to this FAQ so that information is available to all running.

What is considered arena attire?2022-05-03T16:43:23+00:00

Our pageant is unique in that we get to have the pageant in conjunction with the Rodeo of the Ozarks! Contestants will be introduced during the grand entry and during a queen run (generally after saddle bronc riding in the run of the show). Arena attire can consist of a western shirt, vest, monochromatic outfit, or blue jeans. Everyone who enters the gates MUST be in a western button-down, hat, and belt. Out Dash Em’ Photography has been the rodeo photographer for the past few years, you can search through archives to find images of previous years’ contestants for examples of rodeo arena attire.

Do I need an equine/ ranch sponsor?2022-05-03T17:10:56+00:00

In the past, we had entries fees sponsored by an equine/ ranch sponsor. This business would receive mention during the rodeo and the contestant would wear a sash throughout the pageant. The sashes themselves take up over half of the entry fee, therefore we will not be having equine/ ranch sponsors for contestants. Contestants will be assigned a number. Ladies may decide to have a sponsor but must promote them on their platforms or by methods which they decide independently.

Is there a prize list available?2022-05-03T17:14:56+00:00

The full list of prizes is available HERE! 

What should I expect for the horsemanship portion of the contest?2022-05-03T17:25:46+00:00

Contestants will receive the horsemanship pattern at orientation and have the opportunity to ask questions about it. The same pattern has been utilized at the Miss Rodeo of the Ozarks pageant for many years. This year, there will be a new pattern. The current Miss Rodeo of the Ozarks will set the pattern. During horsemanship, girls will also do a judged flag run. Please be sure that the horse you use for the contest is comfortable with flags. After their pattern, girls will dismount, approach the judges, and be asked a set of horsemanship-related questions for a mini horsemanship interview.

Contestants will also be judged on their queens run each night of the rodeo. This score will be factored into the overall horsemanship points.

What is the super cowboy/ cowgirl rodeo?2022-05-03T19:26:30+00:00

This is a really fun event where we host kids who have special needs for a morning of equine/rodeo-related activities. The attendees will get to learn how to rope, ride a horse, and participate in other similar events. Visiting royalty, contestants, and reining queens will engage with attendees, sign autograph, and helps at booths as needed. This is an outdoor activity and is usually warm so you may avoid leather tops and other thick materials! We like to recommend fun, youthful-colored attire for this event as the kids really enjoy the bright colors!

Can you provide more details about the luncheon and style show?2022-05-05T21:30:45+00:00

We are so excited about this year’s luncheon and style show on Friday, June 24! This will be a ticketed event open to the public. Contestants will model a western dress and then give their speech. Jr. Miss contestants will give a 3-minute speech while Miss contestants will give a 5-minute speech. The topic will be provided via email after the May 15 entry deadline. Lunch will be served – menu provided closer to the time of the event.
