Queen - Amy Haslebacher

     Hi! My name is Amy Haslebacher. I am 21 years old and the proud daughter of Debi and Bryan Haslebacher from Salem, Oregon. Born and raised outside of Salem, my love of horses began when I was young. My dad would put me on the back of his horse and told me to do the princess wave! From there I spent my high school years competing in 4-H as well as OHSET (Oregon High School Equestrian Team) events.

    After graduation, I purchased my horse Honey. She is a 14 year old Quarter Horse buckskin mare and will be accompanying me at many rodeos and related events this year. Rodeo has been a passion of mine for many years.

    I am thrilled to be representing the Buckeroo this year and can not wait to meet all the rodeo fans. My favorite event would have to be bull riding. I am REALLY looking forward to this great year with Emily and Lacy. 

Princess - Emily Wilhite

     My name is Emily Wilhite and I am one of the 2009 Molalla Buckeroo Princesses! I am 19 years old and the proud daughter of Roger and Nancy Wilhite of Woodburn, Oregon. In high school, I was involved in OHSET and 4-H with my horses in various events such as driving, trail, working pairs, and drill team. In my spare time, I enjoyed trail riding and camping with my 8-year-old APHA mare Dolly.

    I now attend George Fox University where I am pursuing a degree in education, with the goal of becoming an 8th grade math teacher.

    Being a part of the Molalla Buckeroo Royal Court has been a lifelong dream of mine and I am very excited for the upcoming year. I look forward to traveling across Oregon to different rodeos as well as making new friends and memories. I would like to thank my family, friends, and the Molalla Buckeroo Association Board members for supporting me in my pursuit to promote the great American sport of rodeo and the Molalla Buckeroo.
