Alana Huddleston / Skiatook RUC

Leading the Skiatook Roundup Club to the 75th Cavalcade is cowgirl Alana Huddleston. She is the 19-year-old daughter of Kelly and Katrina Huddleston and makes her home in Skiatook.

A few words from this cowgirl:

"I have many memorable moments of one-on-one time spent at Cavalcade with not just my own roundup club but meeting new faces from other clubs too.

"My plan would be to get people involved in America’s greatest sport, rodeo, by traveling to different places and telling all the little kids how amazing rodeo is and what it’s all about.

"I love the history (of rodeo). I love going to museums and getting the chance to read and look at all the amazing stuff from back in the day."
