Miss Rodeo Oregon 2023 Zoe Brooks

Eagle Point is a small southern Oregon town nestled between the famous Crater Lake National Park and the Oregon redwoods, and it’s where 2023 Miss Rodeo Oregon Zoe Brooks calls home.

Zoe is the 22-year-old daughter of Ryan Brooks. She graduated from Crater Lake Charter Academy in 2018 and is currently pursuing an associate degree in pre-nursing from Rogue Community College. In addition, she is employed as a certified medical assistant at her local urgent care facility. When she is not at work or on the back of a horse, you can find Zoe enjoying time with her family, playing with her dogs, or finding new recipes to try.

Zoe’s love for horseback riding began at just eight years old. She has worn many hats in the equine industry; her riding journey began in a show ring, and years later she is honored to represent the sport of professional rodeo, the agricultural industry, and her community as Miss Rodeo Oregon 2023.

Zoe was selected as Miss Rodeo Oregon after competing in a five-day-long pageant held in conjunction with the Clackamas County Fair and Canby Rodeo. As the 2023 titleholder, she will travel thousands of miles across Oregon and the United States attending and promoting PRCA rodeos. Many of these trips will include appearances at community events, public speaking, media interviews, and school visits with the goal of increasing visibility and education about the sport in each locality. Zoe’s passion for family and rodeo is what drives her to be an advocate for the western industry.

Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon 2023 Reegan Bills

Reegan Bills is the thirteen-year-old daughter of Shaun and Sarah Bills, and big sister to Fletcher. She is a 6th grade homeschool student through Sylvies River Charter School. When not in the barn, Reegan loves to read and do art. She plans to be an art teacher when she grows up!
Reegan started riding at a very young age as a form of physical therapy and quickly fell in love with horses and the sport of rodeo. She competes in the Northwest Youth Rodeo Association in Barrel Racing, Goat Tying, and Pole Bending. It was at these rodeos where she met the rodeo queen that inspired her queen journey. Reegan then served as the Northwest Youth Rodeo Association Princess for 2020 and 2021.
Reegan will be traveling throughout the state in 2023 with her horses Rocket and Zelda. Rocket is an 18-year-old sorrel gelding she uses for Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, and Goat Tying. He's the "been there, done that" horse. Zelda is a 9-year-old paint mare who was originally purchased as a training project for Reegan. Over the past two years she has become a very steady gem that Reegan is very proud to have trained herself!
Serving as Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon has been a goal Reegan has worked toward for the last three years and is excited to represent rodeo in our state! Reegan hopes she can inspire others to get involved with rodeo whether it be as a spectator or competitor. She would like to thank all those who helped her accomplish her dreams, especially her parents. Reegan will see you at the next rodeo!
