NLBRA of Michigan Queen
My name is Madison Pratt, but people usually call me Maddie. I am sixteen years old and live in Grand Junction, Michigan. I am an incoming senior at South Haven High School and plan to go to college to become a large animal vet, majoring in equine studies.
I am honored to represent NLBRA of Michigan as your 2017-2018 Queen. This season will be my 3rd year as a member of NLBRA of Michigan and my second as a senior girl.
My current events are trail course, goat tying, barrel racing, and pole bending with hopes of doing dally ribbon and breakaway in the near future.
I love being a part of this association because I have made some irreplaceable friends and learn something new every time I swing my leg over a horse. We all treat each other like family, and that is something I want to continue doing. I want to spread the word of rodeo and bring it back into this day-in-age.
I am proud to represent the National Little Britches Rodeo Association of Michigan as your queen and look forward to a great year with all of my little britches family.
Little Britches is one of the oldest continuing junior rodeo associations in the nation. The National Little Britches Rodeo Association of Michigan
(NLBRA of MI), a franchise of NLBRA in Colorado, was established in 1998 as a 501-C3 non-profit youth rodeo organization. This association is made up of amazing volunteers who have come together to promote the great sport of youth rodeo. The purpose of the organization is directed towards building character, self reliance, and good sportsmanship in our youth. It enables kids to set goals and challenges them to accomplish such goals through discipline, organization, and physical fitness.

NLBRA of Michigan Little Wrangler Princess
Hi my name is Taylor Jayne Pyne,
I am 7 years old and live in Scotts, MI with my mom, dad and older brother who is in Junior Boys. I am honored to be representing the NLBRA of Michigan as the 2017-2018 Little Wrangler Princess.
I am super excited and have a new horse named Angel who is really fast. My events are barrel racing, pole bending, flag race and goat tail untying. I am also starting to learn to breakaway. I look forward to competing this rodeo season with all my friends.
I love to ride horses and practice every day. My family and I also travel to IPRA and MSRA rodeos all summer. I even get to run in the performance at some of them. It's so much fun and I enjoy meeting all the kids there and showing them my princess crown and telling them all about the NLBRA of Michigan.
I am proud to be your Little Wrangler Princess and I look forward to meeting you on the rodeo trail.
Safe Travels and God Bless!
