2023 Miss Rodeo Lakeside Emily Cullins

Perris (California) resident Emily "Em" Cullins is excited to represent the El Capitan Stadium Association (ECSA) as Miss Rodeo Lakeside 2023.

Having grownup in many youth organizations that “built” her, she’s thrilled to work with yet another association that helps build and support the youth in Lakeside.

Emily currently attends Riverside City College, majoring in education and hopes to transfer to Cal Baptist University to eventually become an Elementary Teacher. She’s currently employed at Anderson’s Playschool, where she is gaining experience working with young youth.

Em can’t wait to head out on the road as an Ambassador of ECSA and Lakeside Rodeo this year with her two horses; the incredible Bay, Hagan, and the beautiful Palomino pony, Phoenix. At rodeos she can be often found sharing her rodeo knowledge with kids, dancing to the music, telling her favorite cow jokes, or by the closest food stand! Emily is also looking forward to the many community appearances she will make this next year as she helps people understand the sport of rodeo and how the ECSA works to support the youth of the community in education, sports, the arts, and more!

Besides rodeos, Em loves trail riding and showing her horses. She currently shows in all of the Ranch Horse Classes with her Quarter horse, Phoenix, and shows in the All Around with her Paint horse Scotty Maserati. Em shares that her favorite classes to compete in are horsemanship and trail.

Outside of her agricultural endeavors, Em is a terrible crocheter but will gladly whip up a scratchy beanie for anyone! Em also loves books, any and all books.

2023 Jr Miss Lakeside Rodeo Stella Erb

Stella Erb is proud to be your 2023 Jr. Miss Rodeo Lakeside! She attends
Lakeside Middle School and plans to go to El Capitan High School next year.
Her future goals include joining a college rodeo team and to one day hold a WPRA card for Breakaway and Team Roping.

Stella’s hobbies are all things rodeo! She spends her free time in the saddle preparing for the next event. She competes in team roping, breakaway roping, steer stopping, ribbon roping, goat tying, barrel racing, and pole bending.

As a junior rodeo contestant, Stella’s love for rodeo has continued to grow by learning what goes on the behind the scenes and all hard work it takes to make rodeos possible.

Over the summer, Stella spent time teaching younger kids how to team rope at horse camps while sharing the cowboy way of life and western traditions we live by.

Stella strives to represent the El Capitan Stadium Association and the Lakeside Rodeo to the best of her ability and help to educate and inspire new rodeo fans every chance she gets. She is excited for this opportunity to continue to be an ambassador, by sharing her love and passion of rodeo with everyone she encounters at community events.

Stella can’t wait to work with this amazing committee and start this year’s
journey representing her hometown!

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.


Miss Rodeo Lakeside Pageant Committee

The Lakeside Rodeo Committee is an all volunteer group comprised of El Capitan Stadium Association members, former Miss Rodeo Lakeside and Jr Miss Rodeo Lakeside title holders, Miss Rodeo California 2016 as well as Miss Rodeo USA (IPRA) 2014 title holders!
