Miss Rodeo California 2016


pic-mrc2016-rachelRachel Owens-Sarno is a 23 year old resident of Lakeside, California in San Diego County. She currently attends Grossmont College, where she is working toward a degree in Media Communications with an emphasis on Broadcast Journalism. She is the owner of one dog, Barley, and two horses, Phantom and Mr. Biscuits. She competes in the National Barrel Horse Association with Mr. Biscuits, and knows she still has a long journey with him to get to the top. Rachel is also a proud member of the El Capitan Stadium Association (ECSA), which is a volunteer organization that puts on the annual Lakeside Rodeo. The ECSA is dedicated to raising money to give back to the youth of Lakeside. She is so thankful for all of their support in her rodeo queen journey.

Rachel is beyond excited for this opportunity. She has the chance to not only better herself, but to reach out to rodeo fans both young and old. She is looking forward to traveling not only up and down California, but across the United States, representing our great state and the sport of rodeo.

Rachel’s platform this year is “Respect Ourselves, Drive to Empower Others.” She firmly believes it is important to respect and empower not only ourselves, but those around us. She believes that it can make so many day to day situations better. Respect is the basic step to having a better life, and she hopes to share that with many people.

Rachel expresses appreciation to her personal sponsors, and the sponsors of Miss Rodeo California. Without their generous help, none of this would be possible.
