18 The WRANGLER, Horse and Rodeo News • February 5-19, 2022 The year 2022 has had a great start for 2022 Miss Rodeo Wyoming Sierra Butler. This year started in Denver, CO for 2022 MRW at the National Western Stock Show (NWSS). Then Sierra traveled to Dallas, Texas for the Western & English Sales Association (WESA) Trade Show which she attended with Larry and Diana Leake of Douglas Hardware Hank, one of her Platinum Sponsors. Then she headed back to Denver to finish out the NWSS and now it on to the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo in Rapid City, South Dakota. Sierra says "As I am writing this post, it seems unreal that the year 2022 is here and I am about to begin an adventure of a lifetime. The title Sierra Butler, Miss Rodeo Wyoming 2022 does not seem real, but as I make my way to Colorado I could not be more excited! I want to thank all my amazing sponsors and supporters who have helped me so far. I would not be able to travel and represent our beautiful state without everyone's support. Here's to an amazing year with all my sash sisters, let's make some memories that will last forever!

"Riding for the Brand's" main focus is horsemanship. During the two days areas that will be covered include rail work, patterns, draw horses, flag etiquette, cattle work, shagging timed event cattle, rodeo arena etiquette, and rodeo knowledge just to name a few of the topics we will explore. Saturday evening will focus on wardrobe choices: cost versus value, shopping options – local/small business, fit and color, hat shape, and how to determine what hat shape is best for you. The clinic is open to young ladies, ages 12 to 25, which are interested in running for rodeo royalty titles as well as those that already hold titles and are planning to run for state titles.
