Home of Champions Rodeo is proud to introduce our 2016 Royalty.
Queen: Rylee Perkins
Hey, Rodeo fans!
Hi my name is Rylee Perkins. I am the 2015-2016 Miss Home of Champions Rodeo. I am 19 years old and from Roberts, Montana. I am currently a freshman at Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming where I am studying sociology. I hope to further my education in Texas where I want to become a probation officer. Mainly I just want to make a difference in the world.
When I am not busy with school or work, I love spending time with my family and friends. Watching my siblings in all of their sporting events is a blast. I love riding my horse out in the open and really doing anything that requires me to go fast. You may also find me riding dirt bikes.
Receiving Miss Home of Champions has been a great blessing in my life. I get to be an ambassador for one of the greatest sports ever. While promoting rodeo, I also get to travel around the great state of Montana. My little sister is the Little Miss, so I get to share this experience with her. So far as your queen I have had many great opportunities. Our first appearance of the year was the Yellowstone Roundup, and followed with the Nile. I had an incredible opportunity to be part of the Cowboys for Cancer event at the Nile. I felt beyond blessed to spread love and cheer to kids and their families. I recently ventured to Great Falls, Montana and watched the Miss Rodeo Montana competition and helped out as visiting royalty.
One of my personal favorites is doing school visits. We went into class rooms and read books with the kids. It was blast! I plan to visit hospitals and make a difference in as many lives as possible. I want to show people how great rodeo can be, instilling hope and joy into the future of little girls.
I want to take a minute and thank everyone who has helped me get here. If it wasn’t for my parents, grandparents, and everyone else who has supported me I would not be where I am today. I would also like to thank my Lord in savior, Jesus Christ for blessing me further than I could ever imagine.
Now that you guys know me I hope to get to know you. Feel free to stop and talk anytime. I can be found at the banquet, parade, and after the rodeo. I look forward personally meeting you. If you have an event you would be interested in me attending, please email me email@example.com. Also, don’t forget to check out the HOC Royalty facebook page where you can keep track of all the fun we are having promoting the Home of Champions Rodeo and Red Lodge around the state on Montana.
Princess: Allison Kathleen Allen
My name is Allison Kathleen Allen, but you can call me Alli. I’m sixteen and I live in Huntley, Montana with my amazing mother and her boyfriend at his feedlot. I also have wonderful a sister that is twenty two and an adoring father. I’m a sophomore at Billings Senior High School. Out side of horses, I enjoy school, spending time with my family/friends, helping elementary students, FFA, acting, modeling, as well as speech and debate. I could ride before I could walk and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’m blessed to have grown up around many amazing trainers that have helped me with not only my riding abilities, but my training abilities as well. At two I started competing in rodeos and O-Mok-Sees. In the past year I have also started show jumping. This summer I became intensely fascinated with announcing and have been announcing local barrel races ever since. I started competing in rodeo queen pageants when I was ten but the Home of Champions rodeo is special to me because I grew up in Carbon County. I’ve never done this because someone wanted me to, or for the glory. I do this because I love the sport, but more importantly I love the people. My favorite thing in the world is when a little kid, or anyone really, wants to talk to me and ask questions. The moment I realized I wanted to pursue being a rodeo queen was when I was getting my six year old cousin ready for her rodeo queen pageant. I was curling her hair and she asked if she could have make up too. After her mom applied the lipstick and I had finished her hair she said “thank you for making me beautiful.” I couldn’t believe that sentence had come out of my beautiful redheaded, blue eyed, precious little cousin. I quickly reminded her that her make up wasn’t what made her beautiful, that it was her smile and kind heart. I soon realized if she thinks this way so do other girls and I want to stop this. I want people, little girls particularly, to see that rodeo queen’s are more than the make up and pretty outfits. Also to have a positive, wholesome role model look up to in today’s fast and loose age. I’m a real person, I’m not always put together, and I mess up but I try my best and learn from my mistakes. Brains trump beauty any day.
Thank you for taking time out of your day to read about the royalty. Have a wonderful day and God bless.
Feel free to contact me anytime with questions on the rodeo, appearances, or rodeo queens in general. I would love to help!
Little Miss: Laynee Mae Holdbrook
My name is Laynee Mae Holdbrook. I am the reigning 2015-2016 Home of Champions Little Miss. I am 10 years old, and the daughter of Luke and Mariah Holdbrook. I have 3 siblings. My older siblings are Shawn age 16 and Rylee age 18. Rylee is the Home of Champions Rodeo Queen. Shawn is the 2015 MHSRA state bareback champion. Colt age 8, my youngest brother, well he is just my little buddy.
I enjoy playing with Colt, swimming, sports, and riding my horse bareback. I also enjoy camping, going to church, snowmobiling, sledding, and riding electric scooters with my two good friends Hailey and Jozelyn.
I like being Little Miss so that I can promote rodeo . My dream has always been to be a Little Miss. Since I have been crowned, I got a chance to go to the Yellowstone River Roundup, the Nile, and most recently the Circuit Finals rodeo.
I have enjoyed promoting rodeo at all of them. I got the opportunity to help the Cowboys for Cancer event at the Nile and the pony rides. I also got to do a Little Miss workshop at the PRCA Circuit Finals, in Great Falls that was really cool. My favorite part was the fashion show. I also made a guest appearance at Roberts School where I read to the 2nd grade class.
Some things that I am looking forward to the rest of the year, besides rodeos and parades, are accompanying The Queen to the St. Vincent hospital on Valentine’s Day. We will go see the children in the hospital as Miss Home of Champions rodeo Queen and Miss Home of Champions Little Miss.
I want to say thank you to God, all my sponsors, and my family for helping me get to where I am right now.
