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, and I am the 2024 Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo Queen! Currently I am studying at UW River Falls. I am majoring in Animal Management (Equine emphasis) and a minor in Ag Business. I am on the Rodeo Team here at River Falls and plan to become the timed event director. This 2023 Fall 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: barrel racing, pole bending, breakaway roping, sorting and team penning. I really enjoy attending clinics and expanding my knowledge to become the best horseman I can be. Sharing that knowledge with others, whether at a 4H clinic or a private lesson is a passion of mine.
As you all know there is also the not so glorified side to these beautiful animals. From the Early mornings to the late nights caring for them, mucking stalls, and working horses on some of the days mother nature is not so friendly. Over the last year I have worked at a boarding facility-doing just that.
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.
I am honored to be Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo’s queen because I remain a part of the rodeo world-while being more than just a competitor. It is my hope to inspire that same positive energy in today’s young riders. Continuing to mentor and share my passion for this sport. The sport that represents the skill, speed and talent between the cowboys, cowgirls and their animals.
As Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo Queen I will lead with enthusiasm and poise. Representing Lincoln County, dedicated to making you proud.

Katy Glaze, 2024 WRPR PRINCESS

Hello, I’m Katy Glaze and your 2023-24 Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo Princess! I am currently a senior at Merrill High School. After I graduate, I plan to further my education and study Agribusiness in college. My parents, Chad and Kristin Glaze, inspired me from a young age to be as involved with agriculture as I can. I am the current president of the Merrill FFA Chapter and held a leadership position in my 4H group. Outside of agricultural related clubs and events, I’m involved in the MHS cheer team as the co-captain, along with barrel racing and showing livestock. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, reading, and spending time with my friends.
I have always admired rodeo growing up, as my dad would tell me wild stories of when he used to college rodeo. Now today I get to make my own memories by represent the WRPR at many different rodeos throughout the summer. I’ve been able to work alongside of many amazing queens and make many new friends with this position. So far, I have had so many amazing opportunities to represent the Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo at many events like rodeos, taking pictures with the WI Valley Fair Livestock Champions, and attend a couple parades.
It has been such a blessing to serve as princess so far this year and I can’t wait to see what else this year has to offer, thank you!
