2016-17 Queen: Bridgette LaHaye


Bridgette was the 2011 & 2012 Poway Rodeo Jr. Queen and has held the title of  Teen Miss Rodeo California as well as various other titles throughout the county.  She is a 19 year old student at MiraCosta College and will obtain her associate’s degree in Psychology next spring and plans to transfer to California State University San Marcos. She plans to be a clinical psychologist working for a school district. In 2014, she graduated from Valley Center Prep School in the top three of her class.  Bridgette enjoys competing in local gymkhanas, barrel racing, jumping, going on trail rides, and taking her horses to the beach.

Bridgette said, “It has been a life-long dream of mine to represent the Poway Rodeo as their queen. I have been involved with the Poway Rodeo with either competing in barrel racing, running flags, volunteering, or serving as a queen since 2008. I had the privilege of representing this rodeo as their Jr. Queen in 2011 and 2012. I am so excited to have this opportunity to represent and be a part of this rodeo again. I was born in Poway and all of my family has deep roots here so this really means the world to me. I am honored to be your 2016 Poway Rodeo Queen and I cannot wait to start this journey!”
