2015 Sedro Woolley Rodeo Queen Rachel Holmes

    Welcome, everyone, to the annual Sedro-Woolley 4th of July Rodeo, where we will be celebrating the 81st anniversary of this grand event! My name is Rachel Holmes and I am the 16 year old daughter of Troy and Carrie Holmes, hailing from Burlington, Washington. Becoming rodeo queen has long been one of my life’s goals. Many things, from attending queen camps to having past royalty serve as major role models in my life inspired me to pursue my dream and I am proud to hold this title as the 2015 Sedro-Woolley Rodeo Queen.

      I'm currently a junior at Burlington-Edison High School, and am also participating in the Veterinary Assistant program at Northwest Technical Career Academy in Mt. Vernon. From my first steps to my first horseback ride I knew horses would be a lifelong passion. I have 3 horses of my own: Stella, a 5 year old registered Paint mare who I use as my all around girl- from reining to gaming, she does it all; Penelope, a 4 year old palomino Quarter horse who will be my Queen horse throughout this year; and Flirt, a 3 year old palomino Quarter horse who is in the process of becoming my next barrel horse.

    Other activities I take part in include 4-H, which I have been involved in for the last 10 years, and the Sedro-Woolley High School equestrian team, who I have performed with for the last 3 years. In addition to equine interests  I have been an assistant coach for my sister’s Burlington-Edison youth soccer team for 3 years. In my off time I enjoy helping my family around our farm, from growing our own meat to picking our own vegetables. 

 As 2015 roars in I am excited to expand my rodeo knowledge and to represent the Sedro-Woolley rodeo. Thank you to my sponsors, Holiday Sports, Skagit Arms & the Blank Family, for supporting me - I won't let you down!! Thank you Mom and Dad for supporting my lifelong dream and for the hours, miles, money and time spent making me the best that I can be.            Let's rodeo!!
