MISS RODEO ARKANSAS
Conway, Arkansas is where Stephanie Kaeppel calls home.

Stephanie hopes to one day own a ranch which will specialize in raising quality American Quarter Horses.
Stephanie enjoys cooking, baking, reading and spending time with her family. Her passions are riding and showing her horses by competing in barrel races, breakaway roping, reining and ranch horse pleasure. She has volunteered for the Arkansas Angels Pageant where she escorted and crowned special needs children of all ages.
“In a world which is constantly changing, the values and traditions of the great sport of rodeo continue to flourish and fascinate others. Though I did not grow up in a rodeo family, my driving passion for horses and the support of my family has given me an opportunity to know and love rodeo and its people. I have spent the last year traveling the county representing Arkansas, agriculture, the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, and the wonderful sport of rodeo. This,” year of a lifetime ” has prepared me for the immense honor of becoming the first Miss Rodeo America from Arkansas. I aspire to educate future generations on the world of rodeo, as well as its values and traditions. I was lucky enough to be able to pursue my passion of horses and rodeo and hope to inspire and encourage the youth of America to follow their dreams.”
