Hello everyone, my name is Kendra Pinnell and I am your 2019 Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo Queen. I was born in Tacoma, Washington and my family and I moved to the Rogue Valley in 2005. I live with my mom Tina, my dad Bob, and my older sister Mikayla. I am currently a senior at Crater Lake Charter Academy. I was the 2018 Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo Princess. I enjoyed being a part of the great sport of rodeo so I decided to do it all over again! I started riding English at the age of six, but I have always had an interest in roping and now I love everything about rodeo! Words cannot even describe how excited I am to get to travel with my four legged partner in crime, Badger. I am looking forward to another fantastic year traveling the state of Oregon representing the Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo.
Hi everyone! My name is Madison Dungey and I'm your 2019 Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo Princess. I was born and raised here in Medford, living with both my wonderful parents Jason and Jenny. I am currently a senior at Cascade Christian High School. I started riding when I was 5 years old on my horse Tia. I still ride, and show on her today. She has taken me farther than I could ever imagine in the show world, 4H, and riding for South Medford’s Equestrian Team. I also started doing gaming events my freshman year on a horse named Daisy. She has taught me to ride not only without fear and confidence but with more joy even when we don’t win, but achieve our goals. With that said I am so thrilled to be here and be this years 2019 Princess! I’m excited to take this journey with these 2 wonderful friends as we represent your Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo.
