Bradie Jill Jones hails from Henefer, Utah, where she is the 8th generation of her family to call the mountain valley home. She’s the daughter of Colonel Bryce and Cara Jones. She grew up active in 4H and FFA. Those programs taught her to use her voice to advocate for the agriculture and equine industries. She has won multiple Utah FFA State Championships and a National FFA Championship. She graduated from Weber State University and the University of Utah with bachelor degrees in broadcast journalism and political science. She has spent time living in Africa and Italy while working as a documentary film maker for local nonprofits. She went on to work as a reporter nationwide for the Cowboy Channel & RFDTV. Bradie and her horse Newt are active members of the Intermountain Reining Horse Association. She’s a fly fisherman, hunter, and dog sledding musher. Her idea of fun is hiking deep into the backcountry with 40 pounds on her back or summiting the west’s highest mountain peaks. She was previously Miss Rodeo Ogden and Miss Wilderness Circuit. In 2022, you’ll see her in rodeo arenas across the State and Country as she rides as Miss Rodeo Utah.
