Chenae Shiner of Roosevelt, Utah reigns as Miss Rodeo America 2013. She received the crown on December 12, 2012 at the conclusion of the week-long pageant held in Las Vegas, Nevada at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in conjunction with the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Chenae will travel more than 100,000 miles during her reign representing Miss Rodeo America, Inc. and the Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association.
"For me, queens embrace the spirit of rodeo, never hesitating to turn a spectator into a true fan.” Shiner said. “To represent this rodeo family as an ambassador would be my greatest honor."
Chenae obtained an Associates Degree from Utah State University and is currently pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Radiologic Sciences with a special emphasis in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT). She will be taking time out from her studies at Weber State University to reign as the “First Lady of Professional Rodeo.” She will be able to use the $22,500 in scholarships she was awarded as Miss Rodeo America from the Miss Rodeo America Scholarship Foundation to help further her educational goals.
As a WPRA card holder, Chenae proudly says that rodeo is her favorite sport! She truly feels at home on their family ranch where branding or herding 600 head of cattle can’t be beat! She also enjoys lake-surfing, wakeboarding, cycling, running, hiking and snow skiing. She can’t wait to travel across the country and her home state promoting the Miss Rodeo America organization as well as our great sponsors!
