Madisen Wallace

Our 2023 Miss Rodeo Utah

Madisen grew up on a farm and ranch operation in Glenwood, Utah. When she is not traveling the state representing Utah and the Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association, she raises her own herd of beef cattle and grows hay for horses and livestock.

She grew up showing horses in the Sevier County 4H program, carrying flags for her local flag team, and currently competes in the National Reining Horse Association shows. She loves hunting, fishing, and adventuring in Utah’s amazing outdoors. She is passionate about agriculture and education, and uses her knowledge and experiences to educate the general public about farming and ranching.

Madisen completed her education at Southern Utah University in Cedar City, where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Agribusiness and a Chemistry minor in 2020, and later completed her Master’s of Business Administration with a leadership emphasis in 2022. She plans to apply her education by supporting her farm and ranch operation and in helping others develop into the best versions of themselves through leadership opportunities.

As Miss Rodeo Utah, she is thrilled to share her passion for rodeo and agriculture throughout Utah and the nation and educate others about our western way of life. Her platform, “Planting Seeds, Growing Roots”, will focus on education and personal development. She is honored to carry this title and represent our great state of Utah!

“There are more than 30 state rodeo queen titles and over 5,000 titles in America. With that statistic in mind, the question is posed: ‘What makes Miss Rodeo Utah so special?’  The reason I want to be Miss Rodeo Utah is to showcase the communities across Utah. Utah’s nickname is the Beehive State, and this is perhaps the best description of what sets it apart. It signifies the hard work and unity of its citizens. Utah is a people state that focuses on strengthening the relationship and harmony of all who reside within its borders. Rodeo is a sport that unites people and communities by building traditions and celebrating our western way of life. I want to follow in the footsteps of Utah’s former Miss Rodeos who have continually built upon the tradition of rodeo and demonstrated to everyone the difference one person can make. No matter how many arenas I may ride in or how many little girls ask for my autograph, I hope that I will always be able to showcase that rodeo is more than just a sport. It is a tradition, and that above all, people matter, which is what Miss Rodeo Utah truly exemplifies.”
