Miss Rodeo Colorado

For more than 60 years, Miss Rodeo Colorado has symbolized the youth of Colorado who wish to further promote the sport of rodeo and our western heritage. The pageant is a continuing legacy of life in the West, the spirit of the settlers, the traditions of ranching, and the excitement of rodeo.
Since 1990, the Greeley Stampede has been the host rodeo of the Miss Rodeo Colorado Pageant.

Ashley Baller is the 25-year-old daughter of Cheryl Sena and Chris Baller. A proud Colorado native, Ashley grew up in Parker, Colorado where she was an active 4-H member and spent her time showing in all-around and ranch events.

Ashley is thrilled to represent Colorado’s rich western traditions by promoting the Greeley Stampede’s 100th year anniversary as the 66th Miss Rodeo Colorado!

As the first predominantly Latina Miss Rodeo Colorado, she is eager to exercise her Spanish to create stronger connections among English and Spanish speakers alike. A city-girl turned cowgirl, she can’t wait give back to the equine and agricultural industries that have fostered her personal and professional growth. Through this platform, she will showcase kindness and faith while passionately promoting and educating others about agriculture and the sport of rodeo.

Ashley is excited to serve, inspire and educate people from all walks of life in her community, state and beyond. As a first-generation cowgirl, graduate and bilingual Spanish speaker, she can’t wait to inspire youth and to celebrate rodeo and our western heritage with new and seasoned fans and supporters.

Beyond the crown, you can find Ashley traveling, riding horses, enjoying Colorado’s outdoors, or spending time with friends and family.
