From their intricate crowns down to their cowboy boots, everything about a rodeo queen is fabulous—including their chaps. Each queen that holds a state title in the Miss Rodeo America organization rocks custom-made chaps that tell the story of the state they’re representing. On Miss Rodeo Tennessee’s chaps, you’ll find music notes in honor of Music City; Miss Rodeo Wisconsin’s chaps are in the shade of cranberry to symbolize the state’s rich cranberry crops; and Miss Rodeo Utah’s chaps are decked out in red, white, and blue to pay homage to the 150,000-plus veterans in the state, including her father.

“I hope that when they see these chaps, or hear a rodeo announcer lead an audience through a patriotic program, that our state and nation’s beloved veterans and their families know that their sacrifices are valued and never taken for granted,” says Miss Rodeo Utah 2022 on missrodeoamerica.wordpress.com
