Kylie is a 10-year-old cowgirl from Meadville, PA, who has competed in local pageants in the past, but never competed in a rodeo queen pageant...until now!

She is a six-year member of the Buckles & Breeches 4-H Club, and enjoys taking her miniature pony, Button, to nursing homes and schools to bring joy to the people there.

During her year of reign, Kylie hopes to make little girls realize that their dreams can come true, and to put smiles on lots of faces.
