Holtkamp happy to represent Rimbey and rodeo as princess

Rodeo princess ready for challenge

Rimbey rodeo princess, Jada Holtkamp was busy last Thursday along with Rodeo queen Mackenzie Skeels at the FCSS block party.

The girls were busy handing out bottles of water at the party.

The 17-year-old said she was honoured to represent and promote her hometown along with her friend, Mackenzie Skeels.

“It’s a great opportunity to represent Rimbey and rodeo,” she said. “I’m excited about it.”

Holtkamp, who lives with her family including four sisters on a mixed farming operation west of Rimbey, is in Grade 11 at Rimbey senior high school. She is involved in volleyball, basketball and rugby. She also plays piano, participates in church activities and enjoys riding horses with her sisters.

Although this is her first time as rodeo princess, Holtkamp and her family have been involved in the Rimbey rodeo for several years. The teen has been a rodeo competitor for six years.

A member of the Kansas Ridge Riders, she has competed in barrel racing, pole bending and other rodeo events.

Holtkamp is looking forward to the year ahead and new experiences as Rimbey rodeo princess.
