LINCOLN -- Emily Burke loves horses and all things rodeo, so competing for the 2018 Lincoln Riding Club princess title seems only natural.
Emily, 9-year-old daughter of James Burke and Jennifer Bratton, of Watts, Okla, has thrown her hat in the ring for the princess pageant aiming to become 2018 LRC princess during the 65th annual Lincoln Rodeo to be held on new dates this year -- Aug. 9-11 at the LRC Arena one mile west of Lincoln.
This spring Emily completed the third grade at Watts Elementary School, of Watts, Okla. She has two horses that she rides, Sandy and Gonzo. Rodeo is her favorite summer activity and she stays busy with the sport, spending almost every weekend at the rodeo with her family and friends.
Emily feels that becoming the Lincoln Rodeo Princess will be an honor. She says it will be her pleasure to represent the Lincoln Riding Club at every rodeo and horse-related event that she attends.
Throughout this experience Emily's biggest goal is to make lifelong friends and have fun doing it. Rodeo and horses are where her heart lies and earning a title that she could be proud of for years to come would be a dream come true.Sports on 08/08/2018
