Saddle up Big Bend and get ready to cheer on a local woman who's hoping to take a national title by the reigns.
Havana's Sharlee Rowan currently holds the title of Miss Rodeo Florida, but this Thanksgiving she's heading to Las Vegas to compete in the Miss Rodeo America pageant.
Sharlee says she's most excited to see the other state rodeo queens.
She says, "I've spent weeks with these girls and just getting to see them one last time is exciting for me, so one of us will win the title; anything after this is just icing on the cake."
Sharlee will be judged in several categories ranging from horsemanship to modeling to impromptu interviews. The TCC student has ridden horses all of her life and has spent the last year traveling around the state as Miss Rodeo Florida.
