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

Cassidy Christensen, 2024 WRPR QUEEN

Howdy, my name is Cassidy Christensen, I am the 2024 Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo Queen! Currently I am studying at UW River Falls, majoring in Animal Science with an emphasis on equine and a minor in Ag Business. I am on the Rodeo Team at River Falls. I have a role as the timed event director and round up chairholder. This 2024 Spring season I have been competing in barrels and breakaway. We have traveled all over the midwest from Nebraska to Iowa and everywhere in between.
Since I can remember, I have always been drawn to animals. That passion has inspired me to pursue a future with them. In my free time I have been competing in events such as: sorting, team penning, barrel racing, pole bending and breakaway roping. I really enjoy attending clinics and expanding my knowledge to become the best horseman I can be. Sharing that knowledge with others.
I grew up attending the Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo. I recall the rodeo queen radiating with positive energy: her head held high, a wide smile, walking with confidence and grace. From that point on I dreamed about representing the sport of rodeo. Rodeo has taught me about grit, persistence and not only being a role model to others but to myself as well. It has been honored to turn that dream into reality and serve as the 2024 Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo’s queen. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Katy Glaze, 2024 WRPR PRINCESS

My name is Katy Glaze, I’m a senior at Merrill High School, and I am running for the title of the 2025 Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo Queen. In school, I’m the president of the Merrill
FFA chapter, MHS Cheer Team co-captain, and link crew. In the community I’m involved in the Marathon county Market Animal Show and Sale committee, member of the NBHA as well as a member of the AQHA, I dance at Brookes School of Dance and have for about 13 years. I have grown up around animals my entire life, getting my first pony at four years old. My happy place is on the back of a horse. I now barrel race and show livestock at the WI Valley Fair. My family owns and operates an angus beef cattle farm known as 4G Family Farms which my entire family works on together. This past year I ran and was crowned the WRPR Princess. Being crowned this title has offered me so many opportunities to grow and develop a true passion for rodeo with all it has to offer. I’m excited to be running for queen again this year!
