Clancy’s quote that she lives every day by, “You can’t be better than anyone else. The only person you can be better than is the person you were yesterday”.
Miss Teen Rodeo Montana 2023
Howdy, folks! My name is Elle Bucher, your Miss Teen Rodeo Montana 2023! I am coming to you from the beautiful city of Missoula, Montana! I attend Big Sky High School in the Health Science Academy and am an honors student. I grew up in the dirt outside of the arena and got to a horse as fast as I could. My love of horses led me to compete in local Omoksees, Gymkhana, and finally rodeo. I have been attending the Western Montana Fair and Missoula Stampede Rodeo since before I can remember! I have participated in 4-H and FFA, showing poultry, sheep, goats, and horses and shooting competitive archery.
In my free time, I love to try my hand at anything, recently including playing pool and learning to swing dance. I love to ride all different kinds of horses and work in the summer putting miles on horses for other people as well as training my own. I am blessed to have 2 amazing horses which I will have the opportunity to learn and grow with this summer.
I started competing in rodeo pageants when I was 12 years old. My first title was Little Miss of the Missoula Stampede and I spent last year attending over 20 rodeos as the Darby Rodeo Association Queen. From my first rodeo, I knew I wanted to be in that arena! The crowd, the energy, and the family I found through the rodeo are unparalleled. I am so excited to have this opportunity to represent rodeo and the great state of Montana as the 2023 Miss Teen Rodeo Montana and cannot wait to see what this year has to offer. Hang on tight and let’s slap some leather.
Miss Big Sky Pro Rodeo 2023
Hello! My name is Katherine Ramsey, I am also known as Katy. I am blessed to be Miss Big Sky Pro Rodeo, and proud to call Great Falls, Montana “home.” I am 17 years old and the daughter of James and Joeleen Ramsey, and a student at Charles M. Russell High School. I have two sisters, Liz and Remick, and two brothers – Scottie and Frank. In my family I’m the only one that caught the “horse” bug! I participate in horse shows, jumping, trail riding, and rodeo where I compete in goat tying, barrel racing and pole bending as well as gun sports.
In addition to horses and horseback riding I also enjoy hunting and fishing, gun sports and traveling.
Looking forward to making new friends this year at rodeos and events around the state and I invite you to join me for four great nights of Professional Rodeo at the 2023 Big Sky Pro Rodeo in Great Falls, August 2-5.
