West Texas Fair & Rodeo Queen

Congratulations Bobbi Loran on becoming the 2019-2021 West Texas Fair & Rodeo Queen!

What is a Rodeo Queen?

A West Texas tradition of five decades, the selection of Miss West Texas Fair & Rodeo is based on horsemanship, appearance and personality competition.

There are six categories in the competition that are recognized, but only three are judged and scored with a point system. The three categories recognized but not voted on separately are Congeniality (voted on by the contestants, not the judges), their Speech (which is part of the overall Personality category) and Photogenic. The non-judges categories are recognized in order to give as many accolades as possible. The three categories that are judged are Horsemanship, Western Attire and Personality. The judges score these three categories and the young lady with the most points wins. The judges scores are given to a local public accounting firm for tabulation. The young lady with the most points in the three point judged categories is the winner. The results are then placed in a sealed envelope and given to our rodeo announcer. Join us as we find out who the Queen is during the first performance of the West Texas Fair PRCA Rodeo on Tuesday night of the fair.

During her reign, Miss West Texas Fair & Rodeo will travel all over the state encouraging Texas youth to remember the impact that our rich western heritage has had on the development of our state and to educate everyone about the contributions of Texas agriculture in our everyday lives.

2019-2021 Miss West Texas Fair & Rodeo Biography

1 of 4

Hello, I am Bobbi Loran, a 22-year-old native of Wichita Falls, Texas. I am grateful to the West Texas Fair & Rodeo and the Expo Center of Taylor County for the opportunities they offered to me and many young ladies as well. Through their hard work and dedication to rodeo, they are prominent ambassadors showcasing our historic western heritage. I am proud to be apart of the Miss West Texas Fair & Rodeo legacy!

My bachelor's degree in business marketing will soon be complete from Midwestern State University, with honors from the Beta Gamma Sigma Business Honor Society. Thankfully, the West Texas Fair & Rodeo Queen Scholarship Pageant has donated a generous scholarship giving young ladies more opportunities to attain higher education. After this reign, my plan is to ultimately earn a master's degree in agribusiness marketing to serve the agricultural industry. My goal is to spark a passion in others through rodeo and our agricultural industry as an agriculture enthusiast. On the side of queening, I am a marketer for Rodeo Media LLC, a rodeo advertisement company serving our sport.

One of my passions is pyrotechnics, and I intend to earn my pyrotechnic license within the next year. This will allow me to officially wire and create my own firework shows to be used for community events and rodeos. After my rodeo queen career, I desire to purchase a Women's Professional Rodeo Association card and pursue my passion for barrel racing and compete within the Texas Circuit.

In my free time, I enjoy activities such as barrel racing in the Texas Oklahoma Barrel Racing Association, participating in Toastmasters Club 305, giving riding lessons to all ages, hiking, caring for rodeo stock, reading, ranching, rock-climbing, and spending time with the Pyrotechnic Artists of Texas.

I am excited for the upcoming rodeo season, where I am scheduled to attend the Western Heritage Classic, Stamford, Coleman, Graham, Big Spring, and Brownwood Rodeos. Please come out to the rodeos, I'd love to meet you! It is my hope, by sharing my love for rodeo and living as an example to others, that I will leave a lasting impact within the rodeo world as the 2020 Miss West Texas Fair & Rodeo.

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'"

-Jeremiah 29:11

With gratitude,

Bobbi Loran
