Miss Rodeo Montana 2022 Briann Grimshaw is looking forward to attending the Wolf Point Wild Horse Stampede.

Grimshaw is a 2015 graduate of Manhattan High School and a 2019 graduate of Montana State University. She has held the 2018 Miss Southeastern Montana Rodeo Teen Queen and the 201-2021 Miss Livingston Roundup titles. Her ambitions include working on a degree in microbiology, a master’s in reproductive technology and a combined degree in toxicology with a doctorate of veterinary medicine. Her 10-year goal is to become the first female PRCA Zoetis Veterinarian of the Year. She is being sponsored at the Wolf Point Wild Horse Stampede by the Vida Country Club.

When asked why she wanted to become Miss Rodeo Montana, Grimshaw responded, “Home to one of the greatest saddle bronc riding champions Montana has produced, my small town agriculture community is like one big family. The PRCA and rodeo is just that — one big family. Many of the Miss Rodeo Montana alumni have been like family to me, from a sister relationship that I never had before to additional mothers and so many role models. I can think of nothing better than being the spokesperson for ‘my family’. Traveling the great state of Montana and the country representing and advocating for rodeo, agriculture, and the western way of life. Miss Rodeo Montana resembles a woman of dignity, agriculture, professionalism and maturity. Educating and involving rodeo enthusiasts has become a passion of mine, the chance to further that at a higher level would be a dream come true. I want to become Miss Rodeo Montana 2022 because at 23, I am at a place where I can represent our great state and circuit with maturity, professionalism, devotion and advocacy it deserves. When most people think about Montana, they think about the Mountains, the cold winters, or cowboys. To me, Montana is more than that. It is where I was born and raised, the place I am proud to call home. The beautiful Big Sky country Rocky Mountains, where I learned to run a chainsaw while harvesting wood for the fireplace to keep warm during those cold winters. The cold winters that I have come to love even as a 7th generation rancher braving the freezing temperatures to check cattle and help deliver calves. Montana isn’t just cowboys, it is filled with cowgirls who have just as much drive and dedication, plus we wear flashy outfits and lipstick. Loving horses and rodeo with a passion that drives you to help and get involved in any way possible. This is exactly what an animal loving, lipstick wearing, smooth talking, blonde haired cowgirl decided to do.”

She is a producer of the Montana Stock Growers Association, a member of the Collegiate Cattlewomen’s Association, involved in the pre-vet program and have accomplished a Beef Quality Assurance Certification. “With my background in agriculture, love for interacting with others and an ability to combine the two, a first generation rodeo queen broke through the surface,” she said. “In pursuit, the opportunity to educate and represent what I loves arose. After struggling to find the perfect fit to represent all of my passions and loves, the ideal opportunity was found. I have completed a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science-Pre Vet from Montana State University. This provides me with the foundation of scientific, medical and agriculture aspects of what Montana represents. A chance to travel not only across my home state, but across the nation representing Montana, rodeo, the western way of life and agriculture. These life experiences and educational opportunities have prepared me for any challenges I may face as Miss Rodeo Montana 2022.”
