May 2018 | The Oregon Queen: On the Road with Jessi Cornforth!July 9, 2018 0 By admin
May started not at home, but in Guymon, Oklahoma! I spent just under a week there and we were kept busy with sponsor visits, working mutton busting, and running sponsor flags at the Guymon Pioneer Days Rodeo. The community of Guymon consists of some of the kindest people I’ve ever met, and boy can they cook too!
When I came home I went straight to work preparing my horse for his first parades ever. We attended the St. Johns Parade and the Teddy Bear Parade in Oregon City, and Dually handled all the hustle and bustle perfectly.
I also had the opportunity to attend a few schools near my home and teach kids about Oregon agriculture. The visits were scheduled through Ag in the Classroom, a non-profit based at Oregon State University, and it’s the same organization that my sorority benefited.
My next event was the Spray Rodeo. I had the pleasure of pushing cattle each day with Miss NPRA, Baylee Crawford. We had perfect weather during the rodeo despite a huge thunderstorm the night before.
I finished out the month at the Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo, where I worked with their incredible court pushing cattle, helping at the Rascal Rodeo, and enjoyed some down time at the family fun center with my favorite rodeo clown, JJ Harrison! May sounds like it was incredibly busy, but June is when rodeo season really picks up. If you see me on the road, be sure to say hi and grab a #flexforjccf picture!
