About Miss Rodeo Lakeside

Each year, young women between the ages of 14 to 17 and 18 to 25 come from all over the county to compete for the coveted title of Miss Rodeo Lakeside or Jr Miss Rodeo Lakeside. The pageant attracts women interested in supporting the sport of rodeo and representing the Annual Lakeside Rodeo, held in April. Not only do these women have to be knowledgeable in rodeo and current events, they have to be able to ride a horse extremely well. (See Pageant Prep Schedule Below)

Miss Rodeo Lakeside knows what it takes to successfully carry the rodeo queen title. She travels to rodeos, schools, parades and special events promoting rodeo and family values, and is thought of as a role model to children throughout the county. She also promotes the goals of the El Capitan Stadium Association (ECSA), the non profit host of the Lakeside Rodeo. which donates over $100,000 to the youth of Lakeside each year. Our rodeo is an entertainment destination for San Diego County families and also a vital fund raiser for Lakeside children.

The new Miss Rodeo Lakeside is chosen in a pageant held in September and becomes the Lady in Waiting until she is formally crowned at the following Lakeside Rodeo in April.

Competition Day

On competition day for the Miss Rodeo Lakeside Pageant, contestants traditionally compete in Horsemanship in the morning, engage in an interview process with judges and complete a comprehensive test. A coronation or pageant is held that same evening to present the new Miss Rodeo Lakeside and Jr Miss Rodeo Lakeside.

The pageant committee starts working with the contestants months before the pageant to fine-tune their skills for the final night. For some contestants, it is their first time to model, speak in front of an audience or undergo an interview. The skills learned during pageant practice can be applied in real life situations as well, such as job interviews and classroom presentations.

Awards and Prizes

Miss Rodeo Lakeside and Jr Miss Rodeo Lakeside are awarded such prizes as a custom western saddle and silver Gist Buckle, Rodeo Queen crowns and numerous other prizes. Miss Rodeo and Jr Miss Rodeo have the privilege of using the coveted Miss Rodeo Lakeside riding chaps, which are passed down to the winner each year to wear during rodeos and parades.
