Miss Michigan Royalty

MISS MICHIGAN RODEO QUEEN 2021-2022

Howdy everyone! My name’s Holli Haley and I have the honor to be your 2021-2022 Michigan High School Rodeo Queen. I’m 17 years old and attend Whittemore-Prescott High School as a senior.

I compete in pole bending, goat tying, barrel racing, light rifle, cutting and reined cow horse. Many of you probably know me or have seen me helping around the arena. I’ve done everything from barrel racing event director to pushing calves and tying neck ropes. I’m hoping I can keep that legacy going, even though my duties have changed a bit since last spring.

I’m so excited to get to work with each and every contestant and parent as we travel the state together this year.

Outside of rodeo, you might catch me in my blue corduroy jacket representing Region 6 as Secretary – or just playing around the barnyard. But I also hold a place as a Class Office Treasurer, FFA Chapter President, along with art club and wrestling. Now that might come off as a lot, but I wouldn’t be where I am without my moms. Now of course, I love my mom the most, but every place I’ve gone I have picked up another “mom”, or someone that is always willing to help, or just have a conversation to pass some time. I hope each of you have a second mom, whether it’s in or outside of our rodeo family.

Not to mention, the ones that make it possible, our equine partners that always carry us to the finish line, unless you ride rough stock. I am thankful every single day for the horses and opportunities I have because of them.

To you all, safe travels, good luck and god bless!

This is my 2nd year with Michigan High School Rodeo and I compete in pole bending, goat tying, barrel racing, and ribbon roping. When I’m not in the arena I enjoy volleyball, basketball, and spending time with my family.

Get Involved

Saddle Bronc Riding

The saddle bronc is rated on how high he kicks, the strength and force of his bucking action, his reverses in direction, and for rolling and twisting action.

Steer Wrestling

The mounted steer wrestler is placed in a box behind a barrier; his hazer in a box on the opposite side of the steer. The steer must be given a head start. The point is to turn the steer back instantly so that its own momentum aids in wrestling it to the ground.

Team Roping

 In dally team roping, ropes are loose from the saddle horns, and after making the catch, the ropers must take a wrap around the horn. Time is taken when both ropes are tight and both horses are facing the steer.
