Vancouver Rodeo

2018 Miss Vancouver Rodeo Queen

Shyanne Chandler


  My name is Shyanne Chandler and I proudly represent Vancouver as their 2018 Rodeo Queen

Rodeo is by far my favorite sport. I have been in many different events including pole bending, breakaway roping, goat tying, and team roping. I really love rodeo and strongly encourage others to join, not only because of the different events, but also the relationships you make along the way.

Shyanne is the daughter or Kirk and Shana Chandler and is a 21 year old native of Ridgefield, Washington.  She lives on a small farm in Ridgefield and has seven horses, chickens, pigs and goats as well as five dogs.  She has always loved animals even as a small child.

Shyanne attended Lower Columbia College from September 2015 through May 2016 on a softball, volleyball scholarship with LCC Red Devils.  She graduated from Ridgefield High School, Ridgefield, WA in June, 2015 where she took advanced placement classes for college preparation and leadership classes.  She played volleyball and softball for Ridgefield High School and received multiple awards in sportsmanship.  She was also voted captain of the volleyball team in 2014 and was most valuable player for the 2014 season.

Shyanne is ecstatic about beginning her year and looks forward to representing the Vancouver Rodeo and promoting the sport of professional rodeo.  She states she “has learned so much being a second generation cowgirl and hopes to convey the values of the sport to the next generation.”  Shyanne enjoys barrel racing, and gaming and has recently picked up breakaway again at the Clark County Saddle Club and wants to remind young rodeo enthusiasts to “set big goals for themselves and work towards them every day”. “You will be surprised by how much you can achieve when you just believe in yourself.” She has been involved with the Clark County Rodeo Bible Camp for a number of years and really enjoys working with the youths of Clark County.

Shyanne has been working towards the goal of being rodeo queen for a long time and sometimes she felt it wasn’t possible.  However, her hard work and determination have paid off in a way that was bigger than she could have imagined.  The selection for the rodeo queen was based on speech, horsemanship, appearance, and personality and when she won the title she was thrilled.   During her reign as 2018 Queen, she will be traveling most of the weekends during 2018 promoting professional rodeo, western heritage and her love of horses.  She is very excited to be working closely with professional rodeos, rodeo associations and community organizations and being a good will ambassador throughout the State of Washington and Oregon.

Shyanne’s mission is to represent the Vancouver Rodeo Association and help kids feel loved and valued for who they are and help them to pursue their dream of working with and riding horses as well as representing Clark County in multiple parades and rodeos. By doing this, it will enable her to share her experiences and love of rodeo and the western lifestyle with many different people, as well as potentially touch their lives in a special way.   Although her love or horses and animals may be strong, Shyanne’s ultimate goal is to further her studies and to obtain her degree as a Pediatric Practitioner and work with children.

Shyanne invites all of you to her rodeo July 4th through the 7th at the Clark County Saddle Club.
