Kaili Hill – Teen Queen
When finding the perfect place to sleep, this young lady will choose her horses stall over any other option. Kaili Hill has been riding horses since she was 18 months old. Kaili has literally had a passion for horses since she could remember. Winning her first rodeo queening title at age 5 ½ years old riding a 16 hand palomino, that was her best friend, named Dollar. Being well rounded Kaili rides quads, sand rails, dirt bikes, wakeboards, racing go karts, yet her number one love remains the four-legged steeds. From rodeos, gymkhanas, barrel races, horse shows, western and English riding, to mounted archery (yes, shooting arrows from horseback at top speeds), Kaili can nearly always be found with her horses. Kaili will be competing in the international mounted archery competition in November.
The C3 Media Program is an accelerated program that only select students are able to attend. Once completing this program Kaili will have certification allowing her to obtain a video cinematography job right out of high school. Kaili has been a competitive All-Star Cheerleader for 10 years. At Spanish Springs High School, Kaili has been on the Varity Cheerleading Team since Freshman year. Kaili was a Captain for the SSHS Cheerleading Team her Sophomore year and is a Captain this year, as well. Kaili is a Junior at SSHS. Kaili is the only person from Northern Nevada that will be representing the USA in Rome for Varsity United Spirit Association this year.
This year Kaili’s Godfather was President of the Reno Rodeo. Kaili obtained the opportunity to be the Pick Up Chick for the pony races at Reno Rodeo. The highlight of Kaili’s experiences at Reno Rodeo this year was being invited by Cotton himself to ride into the arena with the legendary Cotton Rosser and his mares and colts.
Her future goals consist of continuing her modeling career, becoming a Real Estate Agent, being an Entrepreneurial Business Owner, and of course continuing to enjoy her main focal point, horses. Kaili would like to obtain the job of Miss Truckee Rodeo Teen to continue driving others to become or stay involved in rodeos and the western way of life.
Kashlin Hill – Princess
Kashlin Hill is thrilled to be competing for the Princess title at Truckee Rodeo. Her first horse was Dutchess, a miniature horse her sister Kaili found in Kansas. Dutchess was bought for Kashlin before she was born. Kashlin’s most recent horse, Knight in Fuzzy Armor, a Percheron Gypsy cross) has built up her confidence to the point that Kashlin is ready to move up to her next horse. Kashlin would like to follow in her sister Kaili’s footsteps and compete in gymkhanas, rodeos, and pageants. Kashlin is currently shooting arrows from her horse at a walk. Driving golf karts, go karts, quads, and riding in sand rails are activities that Kashlin enjoys. Kashlin has been doing competitive All-Star Cheerleading since she can remember.
