Hi. My name is Grace Ede and I am the 2020 Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo Queen. I am 18 years old and have lived in Eagle Point my whole life with my sister Lauren and my parents, Bobby and Stephen. I am a Senior at South Medford High School and am a member of their Trapshooting and Equestrian Teams. My plan after high school is to get my Masters Degree and become a Family Nurse Practitioner and work in the ER. I have been riding my whole life and started competing when I was 10 years old. I am super excited to have the opportunity to travel around the state of Oregon with my horse Josey and Princess Abby while representing the Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo!
Hi everyone! My name is Abby Torgerson and I am your 2020 Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo Princess. I was born and raised in Grants Pass alongside my sister Molly, and parents, Darren and Kim. I am currently a Junior at Southern Oregon University majoring in Biology, with hopes of going on and getting my Masters in animal reproduction. I started riding competitively my junior year of high school and have been hooked ever since. Outside of rodeo, I love running and playing with my dog Wrangler. I am looking forward to traveling throughout the great state of Oregon with my horse, Mora and representing the Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo!
