Annually the WRPR crowns a queen and princess to serve as the WRPR ambassadors.


Hi, I am Katelyn Koeppel and I live in Birnamwood, WI. As the only child of Jamie and Lori Koeppel, I grew extremely close to my three younger cousins. I helped to instill my passion and love for all things equine into one of my younger cousins whom I continue to groom into a fine addition to our industry. I attended the University of Wisconsin River Falls for 2 years as well at the University of Wyoming for Animal Science and Farm and Ranch Management.

I currently own my own horse training business and I am working on completing my Equine Electro-Massage certification. This would help me expand my business into colt training and electro-massage. In the meantime, I spend my time coaching youth rugby within the Wausau School District, working at Langlade Springs as an administrative assistant for Northern Chill and as an administrative assistant at my mother’s consulting company Koeppel Healthcare Solutions.

My dedication to the equine industry is all thanks to my great Grandfather who encouraged me to start riding at a young age. Thanks to him and my trainer, Tammy Kowalski, I have had the passion and drive throughout my life to advance my knowledge about equines. I am so grateful to all the positive influences in my life who have encouraged me to become the best version of myself and the leader I am today. I look forward to running for the Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo Queen and all of the opportunities that will further my career within the equine industry.


Hi! My name is Emma Moodie.  I am eighteen years old and currently a senior at Moodie Home School.  After I graduate, I plan on taking a year off from school to shadow a variety of jobs, with my main focus being on children.

I have always loved being a huge part of the rodeo, ever since I can remember.   I have grown up with horses and they have been a huge part of my life.  I was riding before I could even walk.  I enjoy trail riding and am currently a member of the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association.  Outside of the horse world, I am working as a full-time nanny for a number of different families.  In my free time, I enjoy running, kayaking, four wheeling, snowmobiling, skiing, snowboarding, hunting and just about anything else outside.

Being the next Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo Queen would fulfill my lifelong dream of being that young lady I used to look up to. I look forward to inspiring others to never give up on their dreams and to pursue their passions.
